1954-55 Slingerland Radio King drum set, white marine pearl, ex.

Slingerland 1955 Radio King set. Sizes are 14x22 16x16, 9x13, and 5.5x14 single ply Radio King snare drum. In excellent condition. Here at Not So Modern Drummer I don't often see them arrive in such good and complete condition. All metal has been cleaned and is free of rust. The nickel plating is in good condition, typical of a 71 year old drum set. All hardware is complete, original and functioning. Includes clamp on spurs and bass drum cymbal holder. Structurally, the shells are in great condition. The snare wires are original and sound bright and snappy after cleaning them. Heads are recent Remos. Wear and tear: there is one spot on the back of the mounted tom where the wrap has been damaged from snare rub, but the wrap is still holding. Pictured are the drums as they came in. The snare and the mounted tom are pictured after I cleaned and polished the wrap and the metal parts. You can see how well they cleaned up. I will add more pictures after I clean the bass drum and floor tom.

Shipping is not $1. Shipping and insurance will be calculated for the buyer's zip code from Memphis TN 38117and paid in a second payment before shipping. I'm estimating around $100 if I nest them. in two boxes.
