Chicago Drum is the legacy of the fine Radio King drums of the mid 20th century and this drum truly sports that fine heritage. Classic natural lacquer over a resonant maple shell that feels so easy to play. Drums that are built this well are not limited to a style or genre. They are a foundation upon which the user applies head choice, playing style, taste and technique. What the player gets back is the ultimate response in tone, power and sensitivity that allows the music, not the hardware to be the focus. This instrument is as comfortable on the stage at Orchestra Hall as it is in the club, the block party and the studio. It's just stunning.
