The Collector's Series Icon Snare Drums were created by DW Drum Designer John Good as a way of paying tribute to some of the most legendary drummers in Rock & Roll history. This new line of snare drums honors icons such as Neil Peart of Rush, Roger Taylor of Queen, and Nick Mason of Pink Floyd. The snare drum sizes and shell configurations are exact replications of the drums each artist plays, but with one dramatic new design element. The finish is painstakingly laser-cut, then hand-inlayed from a variety of jaw-dropping exotic wood veneers and protected with a clear gloss lacquer.

Here we have the Drum Workshop 6.5" x 14" Icon Series Neil Peart Time Machine Snare Drum. Few bands have the same staying power as Rush. Thirty years later, when you're driving and "Spirit of The Radio" randomly comes on—you still can't help air-drumming the heck out of it on your steering wheel! It's ok. We won't tell anybody (we do it too). These pioneers of prog-rock have had a lasting effect on popular music that will not soon be forgotten. Few words describe them better than icons.

The Drum Workshop 6.5" x 14" Icon Series Neil Peart Time Machine Snare Drum really knocks it out of the park. This gorgeous drum is crafted from a 10-ply Collector's Series Maple VLT Shell. This gives it a gorgeous vertical grain as well as enhanced depth and body. It features a "Padauk" finish with stunning laser-cut inlay that replicates Neil's "Time Machine" artwork. The inlays are crafted from walnut, maple, dyed orange maple, dyed black maple, and white poplar.

This snare also features DW's patented MAG throw-off and three point butt plate.  A purposefully simple design, the MAG is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the upright position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release, it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz. The innovative three-point butt plate, allows you to easily and accurately toggle between 3 different levels of strainer tension. This snare also features DW's classic dual turret lugs, True-Hoops, Tru-Tone snare wires, and True-Pitch tension rods. As if all if this isn't enough, all of the hardware on this snare is copper plated to give it a distinct look.  

Now as cool as these drums are, there is still something way cooler about them. With the Icon Series, DW allowed each artist to select a charity that would receive part of the profits from these signature drums. The proceeds from the Neil Peart snare will go to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation to helps those in their battle with cancer.

Every model of the Icon Series Snare Drums are limited to a run of 250 pieces. Each one is numbered and comes with a snare drum bag, certificate of authenticity, and a legend that describes the woods used to craft these stellar drums.
