WFL Vintage 1940 1300 Kit - Marble Painted Wrap - Used
Item ID: ISS5298C
This WFL Vintage 1940 1300 Kit is in excellent condition. Original “Marble” painted wrap finish. Super unique and beautiful. Incredible shape for this period kit. Huge sounding kick drum. Stamped 1940. Tons of mojo. Snare sounds amazing. Perfect for recording studio or live. Throw off works perfectly. They should have never stopped making them this way.
This absolute relic of a kit is from a time where no two kits were the same and every single drum set owner was an innovator with their highly customized kit. Drummers in the 1930s were still taking concert percussion instruments and seeing how they could be fashioned together to make more permanent rigs. Bass drums, snares, and toms were all bought separately – traps came in kits, but often were just bought as needed. Identifying the items in this particular kit consisted of pouring over scans of original WFL Catalogs. All drums have their original heads; all original hardware, and the snare drum has its original WFL snare wires. Sounds amazing.
