Thanks for looking and please check out my other auctions and ebay store!

Here is a rare 3 Piece Slingerland 50's Bebop drum kit. They sound amazing, but are in need of full restoration. They have been painted black and some of the hardware has been painted silver. Just know that if you are buying this kit. This would be a great restartion project. This is a rare and hard to find set. Look it up! The set started out as a 2 piece and someone added the floor tom later. It looks to be from the same era though. The finish on the shells under the paint is white with gold speckles in it, but is cracked and starting to come off. All the hardware looks to be nickel over brass. Im sure you could polish it up abit but some will need to be redone. All the heads on the bass and floor tom are slingerland radio king calf skin. The snare someone has redone in wmp and it is in ok shape. I don't think it was glued on just loose over the shell heled on by the lugs. The bass drum is reverseable and can be played laying down or standing up. The top hoop is nickel over brass and the bottom is wood. The top hoop is bent as is the to hoop of the floor tom. The bass drum pedal is reversible aswell and is in great shape with the oridginal wool beater. The badge is missing the gromet to hold it in and it is missing the legs to stand it up. I do have the legs to lay it down like it is. Originaly it had 2 cymbal stnds mounted of it when it was standing up right those are missing aswell. As fair as I know there are no extra holes in any of the drums but there are some parts missing. Im also includind the slingerland cymbal stand in the pictures but the screw has been broken off and will need to be repaired. Please look at the pictures so you can see what i'm talking about. So check these out. This 3 piece set sizes are 20"x20" bass drum 16"x16" floor tom with legs and a 4.5"x13" snare. These drums have seen some play time over the years. The heads are oridginal except for the snare. The drum head do have some holes in them but they were still being used. I got this set from someone who said they were his fathers and he bought them new and played ever sunday at church. He is the one who painted them for his own reasons. So here is the list of what comes with the set so there are no mistakes. 3 drums, 1 reversable bass drum pedal, 3 floor tom legs, 1 cymbal stand, 1 cow bell. The snare stand is not included it is for sale in another auction. I just used it to take pictures. These are all used items. All used items do show some signs of ware and tare.
