MURAYAMA, NEGI, a modern but vintage oriented SHIMANO and a solid but unknown red snare

Zim Gar made a round badge and many of their lugs resembled Radio King. I think two of those may be. Metal hoops and similar T-rods on the BD.
Just a thought. We discussed Zim not long ago here.

Murayama was a small manufacturer of professional drums for the Japanese market.

Negi is still manufacturer of professional drums for the Japanese market.

Beyond Shimano was part of Mapex

The red snare is open for debate amongst experts, most likely not from a large stencil manufacturer.

Note that Zim-Gar never made drums, they were just a stencil drum importer who imported from Star, Hoshino, and Sakae over the years.

Hi, Luca,
I don't know if this is relevant or not, but I have a Star conga with the badge imprinted with "Star, since 1908, quality instruments". I thought the date was VERY interesting. Just trying to help.
