SLINGERLAND FLOOR TOM 16X16. BEST THAT I CAN TELL FROM RESEARCH IS THAT THIS DRUM WAS MANUFACTURED IN 1947. THE DRUM WAS ORIGINALLY PAINTED A DUCO BLUE SILVER BUT THE PAINT WAS IN EXTREMELY POOR CONDITION SO IT WAS REMOVED BY ME AND FINISHED WITH CLEAR ENAMEL SO IT CAN BE PAINTED OVER OR WRAPPED. I BELIEVE THE SHELL IS 3 PLY MAHOGANY, MAPLE. THERE WERE SEVERAL VERY MINOR CRACKS IN THE GRAIN ALONG THE SEEM (VISIBLE IN THE PICTURES) WHICH HAVE BEEN FILLED AND HAVE NO EFFECT ON THE STRUCTURE OF THE SHELL. THE INTERNAL MUFFLER IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION FOR IT'S AGE, THE LUGS ALL HAVE SOME PITTING AND SCRATCHES, BUT ARE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER, THE LEG BRACKETS HAVE SOME MINOR SCRATCHES, BUT ARE IN GOOD WORKING ORDER. ONE OF THE LEGS IN NOT ORIGINAL AND WAS MADE BY ME FROM 3/8 STAINLESS ROUND STOCK.THE TOP HOOP HAS A FEW SCRATCHES AND HAS SLINGERLAND RADIO KING ETCHED INTO IT, THE HOOP CLAMPS AND TENSION RODS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION, THE BOTTOM HOOP, HOOP CLAMPS AND TENSION RODS ARE MISSING THE DRUM IS IN OVERALL GOOD CONDITION FOR IT'S AGE, 65 YEARS OLD. SHIPS TO U.S. ONLY
