Thumbs up Slingerland Radio King Post war 45-48

Here's my latest kit.... The toms bear the rare smaller beavertail lugs which were only supplied to special order. Also wooden hoops with wmp inlay which I haven't seen before.
Sizes 26 " bass drum, 13"9" with bass drum hoop mount, and 16"16" and the tom cradle.
Hope you like...
