DW are pleased to release a limited edition Jim Keltner ICON snare drum. Only 250 will ever be made and each is numbered and signed by DW’s own John Good.
“Everyone at Drum Workshop is honored to present this very special ICON snare drum to in honor of our good friend and drumming legend, Jim Keltner,” said Good. “His contributions to the drum community and music industry at large are well documented.” Jim’s passion for the art form and stylistic integrity are have been captured with this Icon ICON snare drum which is crafted from 11 plies of North American Hard Rock Maple and features VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) grain orientation.
Finished with intricate laser-cut, exotic and dyed-wood inlays inspired by Jim’s vintage Collector’s Series kit, his signature aviator sunglasses and “Oooeeee” custom license plate, it’s a collectable and a highly-playable instrument. The 6.5”x14” drum is outfitted with Jim’s favorite mini turret lugs in weathered-looking Antique Brass and comes standard with matching True-Hoops™ and MAG throw-off system, True-Pitch Tuning™, and True-Tone™ snare wires.
