As I had been aware that the Slingerland Drum Company had produced Drums and Accessories catalogues some considerable time ago these naturally became items that I wanted to also add to my collection, especially as Gene appeared on the front cover of every catalogue from the 30’s through to 1967; some endorsement!!
These were however not easy to obtain and I am eternally grateful for my late Uncle who purchased the vast majority of these for me.
The guide that I used was The Slingerland Book by Rob Cook which I bought during 1996, and then his second edition which came out during 2004.
I myself cannot wait as more jigsaw pieces in my quest for Krupa facts will finally be available; and space has already been made available next to the Russ Connor books and Jon Hancock’s book regarding the BG 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert as Brooks work will be on a par with these.
