See "Correspondence Course #1" to view the materials.Henry Heanon Slingerland (1875-1946), so the story goes, gambled his way into a business when his card game winnings one day in 1912 included a company that printed ukulele instruction books. It is said that he then changed the name to The Slingerland Correspondence School of Music and moved to 431 S. This date would appear to be accurate, as the correspondence course music that I have acquired has copyright dates of 1914 for the Slingerland Correspondence School of Music, and 1911 & 1912 copyright dates for H. At the outset, the company imported ukuleles from Germany, but soon found that they could not import enough to meet the demand.I also get people asking what factory a drum might have shipped from or the exact month a drum was made or even the production numbers etc.The ever important serial number which some companies keep detailed records of unfortunately does not exist in the history of drums.My buddy who is an awesome drummer sounds great on his, but when i get behind there it doesnt sound nearly as good. As I mentioned, I set out to get some older Zildjian hats which along with a Zildjian ride were included with the kit.

Slingerland is a drum manufacturer originally based out of Chicago, Ill., that has produced quality drum sets and snare drums since 1928.Unfortunately drum companies never really prescribed to any code of documenting a drum based on that serial number.In fact I once heard that they started using serial numbers not for their own use per say but so schools and institutions could keep track of instruments in inventory.Fortunately drum companies since the 40's were good at printing catalogs.
