    1950's Slingerland Radio King - floor tom suggestions?

    Hey JDG, I did put an offer in, but it was on the low side and I was just taking some time to consider the counter. I was able to find a 16 x 16" for my kit, but I wanted to experiment with something a bit smaller. What is also holding me back is that I cant tell if the shade will match...

    1950's Slingerland Radio King - floor tom suggestions?

    And yes sizes are 22, and 13. Its in great shape with the exception of a scuffed area on the bass hoop where the pedal was connected. Any options for hoop protectors that dont adhere or drill into to the hoop?

    You guys are the best. I love the positivity and suggestions. Believe it or not I found a matching 16 Slingerland floor Tom in the same aqua blue sparkle hue from the same era. I probably paid more than I needed but I figured I wouldnt find that shade for a while. I bought a remo felt strip...
