Slingerland Radio King 1950s 5×14 WMP, Excellent!, $1,195.00
This drum screams of Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa. The drum is excellent condition with nothing broken, missing or modified. 3 point strainer. The shell and white marine pearl finish are excellent.
The drum does show some slight signs of wear. The nickel plated hardware is clean but shows some corrosion. The are a couple very slight separations of the reinforcing ring on the bottom edge and the are some very slight dents in the bottom edge. The screw that attaches the snare wires to the extended butt plate could be non original. All of these flaws are minor and extremely common on drums of this era.
This drum is a fantastic example of the legendary Slingerland Radio King snare drum. It’s 100% ready to play and itching’ to get back to making music.
