SLINGERLAND RADIO KING VINTAGE SNARE SHELL- RARE 8"X14" 1940'S GENE KRUPA MODEL! ORIGINAL BLUE/SILVER DUCO FINISH. LOOKS TO BE MAPLE/MAHOGANY/MAPLE, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW GOOD THIS WILL SOUND. SHELL FINISH IS COVERED WITH WHITE PAINT (WHY??? - I'M NOT THE ORIGINAL OWNER, SO THIS IS NOT MY FAULT!) MY INTENTION WAS TO RESTORE THIS DRUM, BUT I DON'T HAVE TIME, SO I'M PASSING THE TORCH TO SOMEONE ELSE. ALL HOLES ARE ORIGINAL, DRILLED FOR STREAMLINED LUGS, AND ORIGINAL SNARE THROW OFF. THE CLOUD BADGE IS ORIGINAL, AND ON TIGHT. THE SHELL IS PERFECTLY ROUND. THE BEARING EDGES LOOK GOOD. SOME VERY MINOR SCUFFS, BUT WILL CLEAN UP JUST FINE. PLEASE, PLEASE, DO THIS DRUM JUSTICE, AND BRING IT BACK TO LIFE, WHOEVER WINS THIS AUCTION. THIS LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN WILL PART THE CLOUDS ONCE IT'S FULLY RESTORED. BUY THIS DRUM, THE WOOD HAS BEEN AGING FOR OVER 70 YEARS, AND YOU JUST CAN'T BUY THAT OFF THE SHELF. OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY TODAY!!!
