Vintage Slingerland Radio King snare drum. Manufactured between 1955 & 1959. 14" diameter, 8" height. 1 ply mahogany shell with maple reinforcing rings. 8 lugs with Slingerland 3 point strainer. Calfskin heads.

Because of the age, no restoration has been done to remove patina or tarnish from the metal parts of the drum. The wood finish is original. The stand has some surface rust but nothing that affects the operation.

(I have added one more picture of the Radio King stamp in the top ring of the drum for those who dispute that it is a Radio King.)
