Drum Workshop Inc. (DW) has announced the release of a Jim Keltner Collector’s Series® ICON snare drum honoring the legendary drummer’s contribution to the music world. Only 250 of the California Custom Shop collectables will ever be produced and each is numbered and signed by DW’s own John Good.
“Everyone at Drum Workshop is honored to present this very special ICON snare drum in honor of our good friend and drumming legend, Jim Keltner,” said Good. “His contributions to the drum community and music industry at large are well documented.”
Crafted from 11 plies of hand-selected North American Hard Rock Maple with patented VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) grain orientation technology, it’s a collector’s piece that is also a highly-playable, studio-quality instrument.
The unique drum is then finished with a veneer of ,laser-cut, hand-applied exotic and dyed-wood inlays inspired by Jim’s vintage Collector’s Series kit, and his signature aviator sunglasses and custom California license plate. The 6.5″x14″ drum is outfitted with Jim’s favorite “mini turret” lugs in weathered-looking Antique Brass and comes standard with matching True-Hoops™, MAG throw-off system. True-Pitch Tuning™, True-Tone™ snare wires, and DW Heads by Remo® completed the Limited Edition offering. A Jim Keltner Fan Club button, set of wrist bands, and certificate of authenticity are also included within the deluxe DW carrying bag.
