Post World War II - 1940s Slingerland Radio King Silver Cloud Badge Trap Kit in the original Black Diamond Pearl wrap. Outfitted with correct hardware and era correct cymbals, block, and bells, this kit is a great flash back to Slingerland in the 1940s. 


14 x 26 : The bass drum is in great condition with original wrap, all correct hardware and no major flaws. The wrap is in good condition with no cracks, one seems is tight while the other has some slight lifting. The hoops are original to the kit and include newer black diamond inlay that matches well and is laid in the hoops and ready to receive either a glue application or nail/staple attachment. The drum includes clip on spurs, an external bass muffler, and original calf radio king stamped heads. One head has a slight tear.

16 x 16 : Fitted with original BDP wrap, hardware, original calf heads, the floor tom is in outstanding condition. 

10 x 14 : Also in great condition, the 14" clapped on tom is all original from hardware to heads without issues.

9 x 13 : Alike the other two tom, this drum is also all original and in very nice condition. 

7 x 14 : The Radio King Snare drum is also in very nice, complete condition. The hardware is original with the exception of 2 tension rods. The batter side hoop has the appropriate "radio king" stamp and the snare strands, along with the metal straps, are also original to the drum. While the batter side head is newer, the original calf head on the resonant side of the drum is ripped. There is one small indention into the shell at the butt plate gate which appears to be a factory false pre-drill for original alignment for the butt gate positioning. 

The kit also includes the original throne, two cymbal clips off of the hoops, a percussion mount that includes two sized bells and a block, an era correct hihat stand including sock cymbals, original Slingerland bass pedal,  and two cymbals - one being a jingle cymbal and the other a smaller splash.
