For your kind consideration is this vintage Slingerland Gene Krupa Sound King snare drum from the 1960s. These drums get our vote for being the most underrated power house vintage snare drums on the planet. They have amazing heavy brass shells which have a wonderfully warm yet commanding sonic signature. Overall the chrome on this drum is in fantastic condition. The Zoomatic strainer works smoothly. There are no extra holes or modifications. The factory brass hoops are in great condition with some slight flaking in one spot on the top hoop. The drum is all original minus the top head. Although it has the original wires, you may want to replace them as one of the wires is missing and one wire does not pull perfectly flat when on (however they are still useable as is). The original tone control looks good and is fully functional. The black and brass oval badge looks great and is nice and tight, serial # 59XXX. All of the tension rods and washers are original and look great. Most importantly, this drum sounds amazing and tunes up perfectly. Enjoy!
