Very cool Mark. Congratulations on the record for holding off on detailing a drum. Now, let's see........... Where was I eight years ago?

What do you think of the sound, and do you have an actual Radio King with which to compare this clone?

I dig it! I like the faded finish. Red sparkle MIJ's are plentiful, but yours is now a "custom" wrap.

Very cool. I love my Star snare - these snares have a really great crack that really pokes through. This is indeed a super cool instrument you have - cheers!

Hi Dan!

Yep, it took me almost 8 years. I guess that is a record!

As to the sound. Well, I never intended to play it, but to have sitting pretty in my drum room. I tapped it a few times and I can't say it's the best sounding MIJ drum I have! And, no, I've don't have a real Radio King, but would like to!

I have about 6 Star snare drums. The best sounding one I have wears a "Revelle" badge, has the thicker shell with gray paint and has 10 lugs, which you rarely see with these MIJ drums. I should post a picture!

Numbers wise this clone may be more rare than a real Radio King! Like it, thanks.

slingerfan! I've only seen about 2 of these over the years, both on eBay. I guess that does make it a bit rare!
