Gorgeous and somewhat rare early 40s Radio King 3-piece drum set, in classic White Marine Pearl wrap with Streamline’cigar’ lug casings. Nickel hardware all around. 9×13 tom: All original. Some checking/hairline wrap cracks, pretty minor. Top rim has Radio King stamp, bottom does not. Includes one vintage perhaps original calf head. 12×14 tom: All original except perhaps the muffler or knob. 14×26 bass drum: Dual “Lock Quick” mount brackets on top, a rarity and very handy. Both mounts work as designed, one is a bit stiff. Cloud badge is an era-correct replacement, and grommet has a little split in it. This drum has two little tack holes in the bottom, perhaps from anchoring to the floor long ago. Hoops have very minor paint wear as shown. Little to no pedal rash. Both heads are vintage calfskin, the resonant head has home artwork and a small rip as shown. Batter head is excellent. The nickel has been buffed on most of the hardware, to a nice bright sheen but in places brass can be seen (on the tops of the rims for instance). Bearing edges are original and excellent all around. Yellowing/fade is very even between all three drums and looks great. No stripped threads, all moving parts work properly. Spurs and spur brackets are included with the kit.
