IS A GREAT OLD SLINGERLAND RADIO KING BASS DRUM. THIS THING IS A MONSTER! HEAVY

AND GREAT PROJECTION. 14 X 24, HAS ORIGINAL (I THINK) CALF RADIO KING FRONT HEAD, REMO

BATTER HEAD. THIS BEAST HAS 24 STREAMLINE LUGS (ALL ORIGINAL) T-RODS & CLAWS (SAME)

AND A VERY COOL CONSOLE BAR THAT GOES AROUND THE UPPER HALF OF DRUM, W YOU MOUNT

CYMBALS, TOM TOMS, WOOD BLOCKS, ETC. KINDA LIKE THE FORERUNNER TO TODAY'S RACK SYSTEMS.

THE SHELL IS NATURAL MAPLE (I THINK) WITH DARKER WOOD HOOPS. THIS BABY HAS SEEN SOME

ACTION, MAY HAVE LOST BASS DRUM HOOP PEARL STRIPS, BUT OVERALL IT IS IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE.

THIS IS NO WIMPY DRUM, BUILT LIKE A TANK. WOULD MAKE A GREAT KICK DRUM CENTERPIECE FOR

A POWERHOUSE DRUMMER, OR A GREAT LOOKING VINTAGE KIT. HAS WHAT APPEARS TO BE DATE STAMP

INSIDE INDICATION 1944 MANUFACTURE. IT'S BIG & HEAVY, SO SHIPPING IS A BIT MORE, BUT YOU GET

A REALLY UNIQUE PIECE OF PERCUSSION HISTORY FOR THE MONEY. BUYER PAYS SHIPPING, ESTIMATE

$80 TO LOWER 48 USA. I WILL ADJUST THE SHIPPING COST

TO YOUR LOCATION IF IT IS APPRECIABLY LOWER. NO RETURNS. THANK YOU
