1956-59 Slingerland Radio King Model Snare Drum
Finish : Natural Veneer / Nickel Hardware
Size : 6.5 x 14
This is a very beautiful late 1950s Slingerland Radio King model snare drum featuring stick saver hoops, a 3-Point strainer and the original wood veneer finish. The drum is in very nice condition with original hardware and no modifications. The shell features a 3-ply laminated single shell with reinforcement rings. The nickel hardware is in excellent condition with no issues. The 3-point strainer works perfectly. The shell has a couple of areas of stress fractures between lugs, however this is only in the veneer as seen in photo. This doesn't go through the shell and doesn't change the integrity of the drum or shell. Newer puresound snare strands are installed on the drum making this drum ready for the snare stand!
