The 22”x18” bass drum’s attributes include matching, fully finished, lacquered wooden hoops and heavy-duty spurs. The power toms are mounted to the bass drum with the inclusion of the Roklok tom holder. Finally a matching 14”x5.5” snare drum completes the 5-piece shell pack offering.
All batter heads are Remo UT Coated whilst ebony heads are fitted to the response side, a signature found on Nicko’s tour kits. ‘Spirit of Maiden’ is available in store from November onwards and is presented in a specially printed Iron Maiden carton.
“Working with Nicko is always a great experience” says Premier’s marketing manager Colin Tennant. “The project has taken nearly two years to develop since initial discussions with Nicko. We sat with Nicko and jointly scoped a kit that Maiden fans around the world would be proud to own. Nicko’s ideas and vision have been developed into this fantastic kit, officially endorsed and approved by Iron Maiden.”
The Spirit of Maiden drumset is the first of a series of Nicko McBrain and Iron Maiden licensed drumsets to be launched by Premier. Further products are to be launched later this year.
