    Default New Jimmy DeGrasso Signature Snare Drum crosses all Genres of music!

    When it comes to rock star status Jimmy DeGrasso’s drumming career continues to reach levels that only a chosen few are even capable! You know you are of legendary status when your resume reads like a rock and roll hall of fame book that includes Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Suicidal Tendencies, Lita Ford, David Lee Roth and Ronne Montrose. And if that wasn’t enough, he was also a key member of the legendary multi-platinum, band Megadeth that help define the entire genre of metal music.

    Now when it comes to snare drums, Jimmy brings all of this knowledge and experience to his own signature model JD-1455 after all he knows what works whether it’s playing live in arenas or in the world of recording! It’s no wonder this drum is has the perfect combination of good looks and great sound suitable for virtually any type of musical situation - This is by no means a “rock and roll” only snare drum.

    Utilizing the smooth warm sound of 1 mm thick beaded hammered brass shell the JD-1455 Jimmy DeGrasso Signature Snare features a 14”x5.5” size that provides a wide dynamic range coupled with projection to cut though even the most extreme stage volumes all while maintaining quality tone. The Superhoop II “hoops” offer more open sound for bell like rim-shoots and solid side stick action and work in concert with the stainless steel tension rods for precision and accurate tuning. The low mass CL-55(G) lugs increase the overall resonance for a fuller more rounded tone. The SR-017 throw-off provides quick and silent on/off action with easy snare tension adjustment and is together with our S-1420D snare wires for full bodied ghost notes.

    The entire drum is gold plated for a stunning look flawlessly accenting any kit - how can you say no to gold!
