Tue, Jan 27, 2015@8:21AM | comments

This past weekend at the 2015 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, Drum Workshop unveiled Neil Peart's new R40 drum kit as seen in this photo, and also here. Here's a video walkthrough of DW's booth at NAMM including Neil's kit at about the 1:10 mark. Drum Workshop also announced that the Neil Peart R40 14x6.5 snare drum will be available for purchase this spring; it's currently listed at All Pro Percussion for $1,499.55. From the description:

In celebration of Rush's 40th Anniversary Tour, Drum Workshop, Inc. (DW Drums) is releasing the Neil Peart R40 snare drum. Just like Neil's R40 touring kit, this DW Icon series snare features exotic inlay artwork from previous Rush albums and gold plated hardware. Each snare includes DW's Mag Throw-Off with 3 position butt plate and a DW Deluxe Snare Drum Bag.

Yesterday DW released a 4-minute video of Neil Peart discussing the kit which you can check out below or at this location (thanks silent_tyrant).
