1940's 'End of War' Slingerland Radio King in White Marine Pearl - 9x13, 12x14, 16x16, 14x26 w/ Ben Pollack 6.5x14 Snare

Very rare Radio King kit. They only produced these kits with the wood hoops for a short time after the ‘Rolling Bomber, War Era’ Slingerlands. This was post ration of metal for the war & transition into the metal hoop Radio King’s, this was due to scarcity of metal after the war. Yet, this made for some of the greatest, if not the greatest, sounding Slingerland’s of all time, in our opinion. / These are very similar to the Rolling Bomber’s but not as fragile & have metal lugs vs. wood lugs / The kit is all original to each other, minus the snare, that was added later. The snare is a ‘Ben Pollack’ model and just sounds absolutely beautiful! / The wrap & kit overall is extremely clean, look at photos / There’s a few splits in wrap around certain hoop inlay & some typical scuffs and so on. However, this kit is one of the better condition Radio King’s you’ll ever see from this era. / At least one original Calfskin head on every drum, the rest are a mix of slightly used Remo’s & one Evans bass drum batter head / All the mounting hardware is clean and functions great / The floor tom basket is included, of course / All the internal mufflers are intact and function great / This is a 3 ply mahogany kit / The bass drum spurs are included / These drums sound gorgeous and are so fun to play! Please reach out with any specific questions. The pictures are a great representation of the condition of the kit
