The Slingerland Drum Company was founded by Henry Heanon "H.H." Slingerland in 1912. Production of drums was started in 1927 and The first Slingerland drum kits came out in 1928.

Over the years Slingerland made the  iconic kits and snare drums such as the Radio King and Studio King lines. By the 1960's Slingerland were producing equally impressive build and sound quality drums to the likes of Ludwig with a great roster of high caliber players using them

Players such as Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Louis Belson, Peter Erskine, Neal Peart, Nigel Olson and Phil Rudd have all used Slingerland during their professional careers. Today many professional players will have at least one Radio King in their snare collection and the drums are still very desirable for both serious players and collectors on the vintage market.
