Pearl Releases Two Limted Edition Chad Smith Signature Snare Drums
By HC News |
Nashville, TN – From master drummer to surfer to celebrity doppelganger, Chad Smith is a man for all seasons. A loyal Pearl artist for over 20 years, Chad’s Pearl Signature Snare has been a mainstay for drummers around the world since 1994.
Pearl’s latest collaboration with Chad has yielded two new signature snare models, each with its own task-specific tonal voice:
The Chad Smith Limited (CS1450R) Snare’s new Candy Apple Red lacquered finish delivers added tonal control to Chad’s trademark 14”x5” 1.3mm steel shell snare. “This is a drum for any occasion,” says Chad. “The classic Chad drum is getting a facelift!” Available only for a short time at the special suggested ‘Street’ price of $469, Chad’s new Limited snare is a drum that takes recording ‘in the Red’ seriously.
The new Chad Smith Free-Floater (CS1465F) snare, however, is a crowning achievement in true percussive perfection. Taking its name from the Latin term meaning “I Came, I Saw, I Conquered”, the drum’s three interchangeable 3mm cast rings (two of brass, one of steel,) are housed in Pearl’s Free Floating snare frame. This not only allows for multiple tonal combinations when stacked in different order, but also for total resonant freedom from attachment hardware. “I’ve finally found MY sound,” Chad proclaims. “Three rings of power! This one does it ALL!” Only 50 pcs. will be available in the USA at a suggested ‘Street’ price of $959.00.
