For your viewing pleasure is this rare & desirable Slingerland Radio King Super Gene Krupa 5.5"x14" snare drum built with Slingerland's legendary single ply solid shell, & wrapped in their iconic Capri Pearl finish.  The opal flakes used in the wrap are iridescent, giving off hints of pink, purple & green when rocked back & forth in the light.  This drum is 100% original down to the heads & wires, & dates to 1959-61.  There are no extra holes or modifications of any kind.  The Super strainer, (or clam shell, as it is sometimes referred to as), looks beautiful & operates perfectly, as does the double padded tone control.  This piece has been very well cared for throughout the years & is a quite a sight to behold.  It tunes up wonderfully, & produces the heavenly sonic signature that can only be realized with a vintage, old growth, solid maple shell Slingerland snare that has seasoned for well over 50 years.  This drum is ready for the finest of collections, stages or studios.  Enjoy!
