Slingerland Sound King 6.5″

1970’s Slingerland Sound King 6.5″ Chrome over brass. Features Zoomatic strainer, original hoops and internal damper. This snare has the depth of a Ludwig 402, but a bit more warmth due to the brass shell, and a bit more ‘bite’ to my ears. This drum records exceptionally well, rarely seen in this size, because drummers hang onto them!

Slingerland ‘Buddy Rich’ model

1976/77 Buddy Rich model snare drum. All original with 3 air grommets and TDR strainer.
A really beautiful sounding drum, one of the nicest I’ve had in, very sensitive.

Istanbul Mehmet Nostalgia 70’s 22″

This 70’s Nostalgia ride proved really popular at London Drum Show last weekend.
Giving a washy and full open sound combined with a dark and woody stick definition, it gives a vintage sound similar to the 70’s legendary Turkish jazz rides. Lovely.

Another classic snare drum just arrived – Rogers Dynasonic.
This snare drum is a late 60’s script badge model, with chrome over brass shell and original snare frame (snares can be tensioned as tightly as wanted without having to pull the snares against the head so hard they choke the sound).
In beautiful condition and sounds amazing. Click for more details
