The Slingerland Book

Forum The Dan’s House Vintage Drums collection features 10 classic snare drums, 4 rack toms, 5 floor toms, and 6 bass drums. The samples were recorded with top-shelf gear and carefully mixed to give you all the detail and impact we heard live in the studio the day we recorded them. We used vintage Neve preamps and an Apogee PSX analog-to-digital converter in the signal chain, so the GOG files are true-to-life samples of these great-sounding, hard to find drums! Although these drums are collector’s items, they don’t spend their lives on the shelf. They’re actively used at gigs and in the studio. The ’67 Ludwig kit was just used for tracking some of Paul Simon’s stuff in

This set is one of the earliest examples we have seen in this finish, and actually dates to , the year before it was officially offered in the catalogues. It is a transition set, meaning the shells were selected during a time in Slingerland’s production when they were switching from what collectors refer to as “chocolate milk” painted interiors, to clear maple interiors. All 4 drums have black and brass Niles badges with serial ‘s dating to This outfit was ordered with a cymbal “L arm” bracket on the bass drum, which gives the player several set-up options.

This allows the owner to set up with either the 12″ or 13″ tom on a single Set-O-Matic tom arm with a bass drum mounted ride cymbal, or both toms mounted simultaneously on a double Set-O-Matic tom mount. Aside from the heads, this set is completely original and has been very well cared for.

In the s Slingerland, a well established name in the musical instrument business, started manufacturing drums, and the firm’s name was eventually changed from Slingerland Banjo Company to Slingerland Banjo and Drum Company.

Popular among jazz drummers across Europe, Trixon drums became real innovators at a time when most drums were very similar in their looks and sounds. Their thin, three-ply shells metric sized gave a really lovely, resonant sound and came in the standard glitters and pearls of that era. The mounting sockets were unlike anything else on the market, with lovely attention to detail in the design of the tension screws and kick drum rods engraved with the Trixon logo. The matching snare drum featured an internal parallel mechanism, with an ornate lever for throwing the wires on and off.

In the early 60s, the lugs on the Luxus kits changed to the squarer variety with rubber plinths. In complete contrast to the Luxus, Trixon launched the Speedfire set, featuring an elliptical kick drum. This boasted two different sounds out of the kick drum at the same time, as the flat base of the kick drum could accommodate two kick drum pedals. The shell itself was divided in two internally, the unique shape allowing for different tones.

This allowed the whole kit to be moved as one piece. This was the forerunner of the modern drum rack. It was also available with a double hi-hat stand that enabled the player to control two pairs of hi-hats via one pedal. The Telstar set launched was in and defied belief. Despite their out-of-this-world appearance, the drums sounded amazing, with the thin Trixon shells giving a lovely resonance and great projection. Other sizes and wraps were available, but the croco wrap immediately comes to mind when I hear the word Trixon.

Slingerland Slingerland was one of the largest manufacturers of banjo ukuleles. Most of them were plain, modestly priced instruments, although they also made some fancy ones. The company was established in Chicago by Henry Heanon or Heanon Henry, as the name is given in some accounts during the teens. Information regarding Slingerland’s activities during that time is sketchy and I have not been able to determine the exact year he went in business.

History[ edit ] A Slingerland drum kit. Slingerland had won a correspondence school of music in a card game aboard one of the gaming boats that once cruised Lake Michigan. The company started out importing ukuleles from Germany, but set up its own production because it could not meet demand. Soon, they produced their own banjos and ukuleles and eventually, also guitars including electric guitars from or earlier. The first Slingerland drum kits came out in A resourceful and energetic businessman, H.

The company’s manufacturing plant was later moved from Chicago proper to the outer suburbs. The guitar’s pickup includes individual string magnets as well as a large horseshoe magnet. Slingerland ceased making electric instruments in in order to exclusively focus on producing percussion instruments. The company remained in the Slingerland family until After introducing the Magnum series in the late s, Slingerland lost its footing, and the company folded.

In the s and s, Slingerland changed ownership multiple times until it was acquired from Gretsch by the Gibson musical instruments company in The final nail in Slingerland’s coffin, was demand by Gibson, that in order to become a Slingerland dealer, music stores also had to carry Gibson guitars. In , Slingerland released a model based on its Gene Krupa signature drum kit.

Short story – I took an unmarked banjo to Gruhn. His people looked at it but could not make an identification but said: I’ve since found photos of Slingerland branded banjos that are identical to my unmarked “New York written all over it” example. Could Slingerland have just produced ukuleles at its Orchard Street factory and purchased its banjos from Wm. George Gruhn was among those I believe were “fooled” to take it that if the word Slingerland appears etched somewhere on a banjo, that banjo was “made” by Slingerland.

If memory serves, he had an article in Frets, or some other printed venue, where he reviewed a “Slingerland” banjo that was identical in all respects, except for being more ornate, to one I owned and had at that time under my hands. In this review he stated that although Slingerland was a drum company it also made banjos To me the Wm Lang’s unique designs and stylistic features at any part of those banjos’ anatomy, heel, rim, fingerboard, inlays, peghead shape, choice of materials, glues, you name it, are practically shouting “I am a Lang designed and manufactured banjo.

In the 90’s I posted photos of a Slingerland banjo that I owned to him for assessment. It was a reasonably ornate 5 string with multicolour laminations in the neck and peghead. It had a donut ring with inlaid marquetry in the rim. The inlay in the neck and peghead was quite ornate also.

Ludwig Drums is a US manufacturer of percussion instruments. Their drums along with their Slingerland rivals. During the s, Ludwig’s “Challenger” line of snare drums offered sophisticated tuning and strong build quality. Ludwig drums were used by many leading drum and bugle corp.

I have hopes to collect enough information to be able to put together a book that will give an accurate picture of the production of their stringed instrument line. There currently exists very little information about this. Specifically, I’m interested in the Slingerland line of guitars, mandolins, and lap steels Songster and Nite Hawk models. Also, Marvel and May Bell guitars many models and lap steels. Other instruments may have been made as well — they started out as a ukulele company, but the only ukuleles that I have ever seen were all May Bell banjo ukuleles, but I know that they produced wooden models as well.

I am not looking for information about banjos or drums — these have both been documented already, the banjos somewhat, the drums in great detail by Rob Cook. I am interested in any and all information that may be available. It is unlikely that very many of the people who worked at Slingerland in the 20’s and 30’s are still alive, but their relatives might have information that was handed down to them. Such things as descriptions of the instruments made, descriptions of work in the factory, whether or not they were made in-house or made by Harmony and Regal and shipped to the Slingerland factory for assembly and finishing; how many instruments were produced, pictures of the factory, pictures of instruments, pictures of people with the instruments, etc.

I am also a collector of these instruments and would be interested to know if there are other collectors as well. On the website listed below, I have a “wanted” and “for sale” section, as well as an area where I will be glad to post pictures of various instruments that people have.

Sound guys loved it as well. Great feedback on it. Thanks for making such an amazing drum! I would go so far as to say this drum rivals any wood drum the Slingerland Company ever produced and is quite a tribute to that golden age of drum manufacturing. It’s a beautiful drum both visually and sonically.
