Hi Jeff welcome to the forum, You've measured the drums incorrectly, the bass is a 14x20" the floor tom is either a 14x14' or a 16x16" from the pic of the kit from the back the mounted tom looks like a 8x12" but the pic of the kit from the front looks like a 9x13. the p 020 isn't the model number. this maybe a gene krupa 1N kit, the snare drum is a Gene Krupa model. radio king model very desirable. is the ching ring also for sale with the kit?, it's the tambourine type thing on the hi hat? you've got a great kit.

Thanks Guru,
I did have the measurements backwards. The ching is going with it. I also have a awesome Tama throne that goes with it.

you've measured wrong again, the mounted is either a 8x12 or 9x13" the best way is take off both the top and bottom rims and the heads and measure the shells from edge to edge horizontally and vertically. Hey this is common for folks who don't play drums to get the measurements incorrect. Here is a badge guide so you can date your kit, I know the date. But this will give you a little more info on your drums, http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/drcj..._1_badges.html By the way you've got one cool kit here !!! I love Slingerland drums !!!

Hi Mr. Guru,
I took the skin off the mounted tom and its 8x12. Thanks. I do play. I just sold my set which was a Ludwig. It was 7pc with the deep mounted toms that the 80's hair bands used. They were not the style that are popular these day's so took I a beating on them. Beautiful 5 ply maple, red mahogany.

Looks like a Slingerland Modern Jazz Outfit No. 9n. with an upgraded Krupa Radio King snare.

I am no pricing authority in any way shape or form!!!

That said... those are beautiful drums in very desirable sizes... I think those clearly climb above the standard $1,200 price that everybody seems to hover around.

I would think you could get $1,500+ if the right two people wanted to get into a bidding war.

I could even see the snare itself bringing 500+... shame to separate it from the kit though.

Depending on what part of the country you are in there might be a couple shops that would give you decent price just to have that little jazzer on the floor.

Nice kit!

Badge is '59-'61. Hardware layout narrows snare to '59-late '60. Great kit in desirable sizes. Technically snare is simply a "Krupa" model as Slingerland had stopped using the Radio King name during these years.

could you post a picture of the snare drum interior with the top head removed? show the bearing edge and the entire interior if you will?
