Slingerland Radio King 1 Ply Solid Maple Shell Ridgeland Cloud Badge early 90s Natural Maple

14x5.5 v

Slingerland 14x5 1/2 Radio King snare drum, Ridgeland S.C. Cloud Badge (Very Classy) solid 1 Ply all maple shell with interior support rings.

We believe its from the early 90's when the Radio Kings were first re-introduced by Fred Gretch owner of Gretch Drum Co. who acquired the Slingerland Drum Co. and after a short time sold it off to the Gibson Guitar Co.

 

Its got that very unique RK sound, fat and thick "can" sound that they are famous for super warm and woody with lots of power and sensitivity. A real back beat monster that sounds and looks beautiful.

Excellent cosmetic condition with a new batter head barely played and a new bottom head, and also with nice Canopus wires and a smooth working throw off lever.
