My local drum-expert says this drum:

 

https://www.ebay.com...16/112625917796

 

is a Slingerland Radio King.  The wood hoops make us think it's from the 1940s.  Does anybody have any further expert opinion about the drum?

 

A few minutes ago, I had just saved this to my Ebay watchlist!

Do you know for sure what it is?

By no means an expert, but I had the same drum in blue/silver duco, also with wood hoops. I was told it was from the 40s, during wartime

when the country needed the  metal for the war effort, thus the wood hoops. Everything I see looks like Radio King to me. Again, no expert.

Ok, not a cheap flip deal, but a real kit [except for repainted interiors] at a reasonable price. When I sold my 12-13-16-22 about 10 years ago on eBay I got $3500 and it was only up for a few hours. Mine was also a nice player's kit. And I happened to find the guy looking for my sizes.

I wonder if anybody in or near South Carolina has bought this set of 60's Ludwigs yet.  I think it looks dang nice for the money.

I'm amazed at the success of the Ebay post. It got bids as soon as I posted it and now has 45 watchers.  May I ask, what makes the Slingerland Radio King so popular?

Radio Kings were the gold standard of the big band jazz era, made famous by the likes of Gene Krupa, among others. Their sound is legendary, you've played it right? That's a nice drum that should clean up well.
