Neil Peart signature snare drumUPDATE - 11/8@10:48PM: Andy O has a great pic of the drum up on his website; he was able to see and play one of the drums at Guitar Center over the weekend.

Power Windows reported yesterday that the November Guitar Center catalog includes a Neil Peart Signature Snakes & Arrows snare drum. Select Guitar Center stores will be selling the snare for $899.99, with no payments until 2009. Here are the details:

This stunning 6"x14" snare features an Aztec Red finish with handpainted gold leaf and metallic gray Snakes and Arrows graphics. The finish is done by DW master craftsman Louie Garcia, who paints Neil Peart's own drums. DW's unique Black Diamond hardware is made of nickle, but it's as hard and durable as chrome. The all-maple shell utilized DW's propietary VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) design, with a verticl grain pattern that allows for a lower overall tone without sacrificing resonance and attack. The special batter head features a printed Neil Peart signature. Everything about this drum was designed in accordance with Neil Peart. This is the same snare Neil is currently using on the Snakes and Arrows tour. See it first at Guitar Center.
