Collector's Series® Icon Snare Drums Created by DW Drum Designer, John Good,to pay tribute to some of the most iconic drummers in the history of Rock,the all-new line of Icon snare drums honors Neil Peart of Rush, Roger Taylor of Queen, and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd. The snare drum sizes and shell configurations are as played by each artist, with one dramatic new design element. The finish is painstakingly laser-cut, then hand-inlayed from a variety of jaw-dropping exotic wood veneers. For Neil Peart's drum, the Time Machine motif is realistically recreated in the wood, while Queens ornate, Freddie Mercury-designed crest is depicted, as is Pink Floyds famous Dark Side of the Moon prism and waveform image.
Each drum is protected with clear gloss lacquer and includes Collector's Series® snare drum standard features such as our MAG throw-off system with 3P (3 position) butt-plate, True-Hoopsâ„¢,True-Toneâ„¢ snare wires,True-Pitchâ„¢ tuning, and DW Heads by Remo USAÂ®. Also included are a premium DW snare bag, certificate of authenticity, and a legend that describes the woods used for each specific drum.
Nick Mason joined the DW family in 1993. His Icon snare drum is a 6.5x14 10-ply Collectors Series Maple HVLT (Vertical Low Timbre with a horizontal outer ply).
