At the start of May, Rhythm was saddened to learn of the death of former contributor and great drummer, Paul Brook. Paul had been battling cancer for some time, and passed away on 3 May.
Now, DM Custom Drums and Highwood Drums And Percussion have joined forces to create the Paul Brook signature snare drum, a fitting tribute that will keep Paul's memory alive.
The drum has the following spec: 14"x5 1/2" birdseye maple shell Hand-cut 3mm snare beads 2.3mm steel hoops Hard oil wax finish 10 CNC machined one-point lugs Taye side-latch snare throw-off Highwood phosphor bronze 20-strand snare wires Evans Reverse Center Power-Dot batter head Evans Hazy 200 snare side Exclusive etched badge
The snare costs £299 plus £15 for shipping (overseas shipping costs available on request) and will be available for ordering until 5pm on Friday (orders to be delivered no later that 28 September, 2007).
All profits will be donated to the Paul Brook Trust Fund.
