1 in stock


This is an early Slingerland “Radio King” 8.5 x 28 sparkling red wood bass drum in very good condition.  This drum has obviously been sitting out over the years and has spotty wear to the laminate finish and plating wear to the lugs but overall solid with a great vintage look. Both of the hoops are in good condition with light general wear.  There is some painting wear at the edges of the hoops and the laminate strips are still in good shape.  No case is included.
