1950s Slingerland Gene Krupa Deluxe Ensemble-1N Drum Kit

1950s Slingerland Gene Krupa Deluxe Ensemble-1N Drum Kit


Slingerland Ensemble-1N kit in original Blue and Silver duco, sizes 14x22, 9x13, and 16x16. Drums are stamped, the year is hard to make out. It looks like it reads 1958, which would fall in the date range that the badge on the bass drum has.

Bass Drum - Virgin shell - the tom would be mounted on the hoop using an arm, which is missing. All nickel hardware, minus one lug which is chrome. Some reinforcement ring separation and minor wear to the edges. All drums have surface wear including missing lacquer, scratches, and rash. Mahogany shells all around which play and tune up well.

Floor Tom - No badge, which is common for toms in this area. Chrome over brass hoops top and bottom. Original tension rods (minus one) and complete (and working) push-button mounts. Reinforcement ring was cracked but has been re-glued.

Rack Tom - Interior and exterior ply cracking - none of the cracks go through the drum. Both hoops are also chrome over brass and tension rods are original. Edge ply separation which has been glued but still separated in a place. Resonant hoop has a flat spot and bottom head fits on tightly. Carriage bolts in the original tom mount holes.

International shipping available.
