So theres a guy in my neighborhood selling a Vintage 1970's practically mint-condition Slingerland 5-piece, and for those who don't know about Slingerland, well they are legendary. So hes sellin it for $350, but my dad thinks I don't need this. Help me convince him.

You really don't NEED it...

Instead asking for him to buy it for you, ask him how you can earn it.

Because as the wood ages the tones of the drums can, and almost all of the time will, change.

yes i understand that as well. depending on the conditions the drumset was in. how could such an old set be in mint condition anyways?

In the 1970's the AMC pacer was also "legendary".




srsly, slingerland drums are no big deal.
a distant third behind Ludwig and Rogers during that time period.

I've got a mid 70's slingerland snare,People see that it's a slingerland and they think its worth a ton.Its just a regular old 14x5 snare...They made a million of them,same thing with this drumset.Although at $350...its a steal.
