This Slingerland Radio King 5.5 x 14 sparkling silver pearl wood snare drum is in great shape! The laminate is beautiful. The tone arm muffler functions well and the snare throw does work with the original snares. It has two new heads on it. The hardware has some light wear to it as expected at this vintage. The top hoop has a light stick mark at the very edge of the hoop in the badge section. In this same section on the bottom hoop there is a small gouge and slight push in at the edge of the hoop where it may have been dropped at one point. The bottom hoop does show what may have been a break repair, please see pictures. No stand is included. This comes in a good used condition plastic Slingerland box case.
