This is a 1953-1956 Dog Tag Badged Slingerland Radio King Snare drum Gene Krupa Model 5 1/2x14" white marine pearl. solid maple shell , I'm running a Remo Vintage Ambassador on top and an Remo Emperor hazy on the bottom, Some of the very first puresound custom snare wires 16 strand brass wires, well all I can say is this Radio King sounds as good as my Leedy Broadway, and to me that is saying alot! it is and now is in very good condition, the shell of course is not totally in round, Big News HERE!!!! if even One of these is still in total round I've never seen one?Yes Sir

And the Slingerland streamlined lugs really make this drum shine especially bright.
