There's a reason the Slingerland Radio King is one of the most sought after snare drums in the world. Is in the sold maple shell that allows for wide tuning and pure tone? The gently rounded bearing edge that cuts harsh overtones and boost low-mid frequencies? Is it the elegant art-deco-inspired lug casing design? The straight brass hoops that provide beefy rim shots? The perfectly engineered throw-off, so robust that it can function perfectly after 80 years of use? The crisp, dynamic response capable of bringing tears welling up in your eyes?

This one is all original, save for replacement snare wires, and with gently faded gold-sparkle wrap, and gently worn plating, could easily find its way into your heart and onto your kit. Maybe for another 80 years?
