I didn't know this band... can it fold? The frame look a bit heavy when the feet are so thin... I love the pedal... and those resonators look cool like this! Are bars graduated? I wonder how theyt sound like.

looks definitely like a Jenco.... but i also know that slingerland took over deagan in the seventies, and they sold some smaller models as slingerlands...?¿?¿?¿¿??

oh man, I just discovered that there has been a folded up vibraphone in the corner of my teaching room and it is a Slingerland/Deagan vibraphone with graduated bars.

I'll try to take some pics tomorrow.

Anyone have an idea if this could be a really rare instrument?


So I log on today and what do I see.....the vibes I posted on Craigslist for sale in Boston. Too funny! They're Slingerland and were made in the early 70's. I beleive Slingerland bought Jenco as they're very similar.
