This might be a long shot but does anyone have an orphan RK floor tom available? Player condition is fine but I want a crack—free shell and good edges that takes modern heads okay. Don't really care about finish but WMP if I had a choice.

Thanks!

I have a 12x15, not sure if it's a FT. It's WMP but quite yellowed, and has no hardware/badge. I actually threw on some old Ludwig claws and hoops to make a bop bass. Normal heads fit. Shell is good but I don't think it is "solid" as in 1 ply. It has some extra holes. Inside is stamped 12/45 (so I think Dec. 1945??)......let me know if interested. It will take some work but could be right. I also have a matching 13", but it has edge issues (likely fixable) and the WMP is cracked and peeling off.

Fixed it! My apologies. I meant “solid shell” as in no cracks or structural issues.

I have a 16 x18 green sparkle ( bad recover job) 4 legged floor tom. Has the original calf skin head. As I'm the second owner, I don't know how old it is, but it is a radio king. I'll include some photos.
