Peace Musical Co. has announced the arrival of Slim Jim Phantom to their endorsement roster. Jim's stand-up groves propelled the The Stray Cats infectious rock-a-billy sound in the 80s and 90s. His signature laid back drive is the centerpiece of his latest project, Col. Parker (featuring Gilby Clarke of Guns n Roses.) Whether jamming with the legends of rock at The Cat Club (Jims joint on the Sunset Strip,) or pounding through Col. Parkers upcoming CD release, Jims drum of choice is Peace.
To commemorate the adoption of Slim Jim to the Peace family, Peace's snare drum artisans have created Slim Jims Phantom Beauty. This first entry in the Batterie Artiste line of Signature Snare Drums combines the classic elements of yester-year with the technology of today. Its 5 1/2x14 brass shell is accentuated with a Black Nickel plating to draw out its high end properties. The hand-etched designs on the sides of the shell create the look feel of a custom hot rod, and its die-cast hoops further compliment the shell with a blistering crack.
Available only for a limited time, Slim Jims Phantom Beauty is a must have for any player who craves the tone of a true classic.
