Default 1940 Slingerland Radio King W/ Super Gene Krupa

I recently acquired this kit and restored. Everything on the shells is original. These drums are in fabulous condition and sound great! Enjoy..

These drums are in excellent condition. Sound is just drool worthy. Lots of punch and warmth.

Great set man!

It's an Rim isolation mount. I picked it up from drum factory direct. I'm still looking for a basket in good condition, but this setup with shipping was nearly $100.00.

Beautiful. Matches my 26/13/16, although yours look to be in better nick. I bet that 28" is amazing... I've just gone from coated ambs both sides to a coated p3 on the back and a solid smooth white p3 on the front... really fattened and thickened the sound up. Shells seem to really like those heads, was quicker and easier to nail the tuning than ambassadors, emperors or any other head I've had on them.

The bass drum is very big and boomy sounding. Actually it needs a bit of muffling IMO. I got a great deal on the heads so I couldnt pass it up. Bass drum heads costed me $70.00 for both. The batter is an Aquarian Coated Studio X and the rest of the heads on the kit are Aquarian Modern Vintage heads. I have Modern II on batters and Mediums on Reso. These drums sound fantastic. I'm actually really blown away at how good they sound. Super Punchy and warm.

Arrow Re: Early 40's Slingerland RadioKing

Sir, What does the Slingerland Floor Tom Basket look like?
I have a WFL Floor Tom Cradle/Basket that was real expensive.
At least it is in great shape.
They seem extremely rare.
Thanks
