1958 Slingerland 4.5x14 Drum Shell 8 Lug Green Glass Glitter Sparkle

  • Sale
  • Regular price $99.00


For your viewing pleasure we have a Slingerland 4.5x14 drum shell in green glass glitter sparkle. It has an internal date stamp of AUG 12 1958. This shell has Slingerland lugs and pre-serial # Niles badge, but is absent of all other hardware. It was bumped where the butt plate was and has a split in the wrap and cracking of the plys in this area. It is a 3 ply shell with reinforcement rings and mahogany interior.  It is assumed that this shell was cut down from another drum (and the re-rings moved) since Slingerland did not have a snare cataloged in this size in 1958, the badge appears to have been removed and re-installed, the snare beds have wood putty on the edge, there are some plugged holes, and the hole pattern for the strainer and butt do not match Slingerland strainers or butts of this period.  This would be a really cool fixer upper for those looking for a fun project this winter. They don't make fantastic looking green glass glitter wrap like this anymore.  Enjoy!
