Slingerland late 50's Masonite shells blue/silver duco. 5x14" Radio king student model, Bass drum is a 12x22" both have nickel hardware.The drums sound very good actually, The snare drum can take any tension that a wood model can handle, As a thread exist about Masonite shells not being very structurally sound, But these Slingerland shells are very sturdy.

Man they don't get much cleaner than that Mark. That Duco looks factory fresh and love the nickle hardware. Classy! Pretty cool these are Masonite too. I've never had or seen one in person so I'll take your word for it. They look good from here! :)
