Default WFL duco 16x16 floor tom

I just purchased a blue and silver duco WFL drum set. I believe the drums are from the 1950's. The only thing is that it didn't come with a floor tom. If you have one, I would be a very interested buyer. Thanks!

I have a 16x16" wfl floor tom it was painted gold lacquer, the original owner stripped the paint, the shell is ready to be repainted if you want to go that route

I got my hands on it this afternoon. It's 14" Slingerland and it is scratched up pretty badly, needs refinished. Missing bottom head, rim... The chrome isn't bad though. Has one original 8 lug stick saver rim. Date stamp inside is August 1966.

You wouldn't want to be seen in public with it in this condition.

I saw it in my friend's basement a while back. He has a 60 year accumulation of drum stuff he is selling.

I'll give him a call tomorrow and get more info.
