Slingerland Gene Krupa Radio King Deluxe Drums ( 4 pc. Red Glass; 50's; NICE ! )
- Source: eBay
From my personal collection a genuine 4 pc. Gene Krupa Deluxe Radio King Drum Kit from the late 50's. Black/Gold Chicago badges; 24x14, 13x9 and 16x16Mahogany shells with maple rings; 5x14 matching single ply maple snare with clam shell strainer. Red glass glitter finish just gorgeous. Only issues are clam shell strainer arm broken off ( go figure !!! ); one thumb screw nut on floor tom bracket ( holding leg in place) looks a little different; and a small cigarette hole on top of bass drum was repaired with a small piece of inlay off one of the kick hoops. Otherwise just an absolutely stunning piece of Slingerland history. And it sounds fabulous. Dialed in and ready to play right out of the box. These are getting rare for sure. Buyer to pay a flat $125.00 shipping and handling fee in Continental U.S. ONLY. I accept Paypal in a timely manner please and will ship your item out quickly upon payment. Please ask any and all questions. Good Luck. This auction includes 24x14 bass drum, 13x9 and 16x16 toms, and 5x14 single ply maple matching snare drum.
