    Default How about a Tommy Lee sig!

    Dear Pearl

    Is there a Tommy Lee signature series snare in the works?

    If so...when? If not...why?


    Thank you.

    Good idea. I'd buy it. I'd like mine without herpes though, thanks very much.

    Maybe some kind of Roller Coaster FF snare drum where you could spin different tiers of shell material around to get different tones. Or, maybe two different shell materials could fit together in a wavy pattern instead of just stacking two standard shaped shells.

    Thank you.
    That's... a really good question. I hadn't thought of that but Tommy is easily one of the most famous drummers ever so it would make sense to give him his own signature Pearl drum.

    I know he's swapped drum companies a lot but now that he's with Pearl this could be just the thing to keep him around!

    At this point, it would appear disingenuous. When Crue was at their absolute peak, he bailed for DW and had this to say in the April 1994 MD-

    You started out with Sonor, then you moved to Pearl, and now you play Drum Workshop. Why all the switching around?

    TL: Without bashing the other drum companies, I just found some of the craftsmanship lacking. I got drums that were out of round; the heads wouldn't fit. And I'd notice it when I'd be tuning a drum for half an hour and not getting anywhere because the shell was messed up. It was all bogus, and I'm not into playing bogus drums. Who is, right? The guys from DW don't pay me any money. They give me the kits to play, and the kits are amazing! I went down to their warehouse and hand-picked the shells, timbre- matching them, listening to the tones and picking out note-for-note what my kit was going to sound like. I thought, This is the company I want to work with!' They're innovative and I appreciate that.

    But ultimately left DW. I personally was stoked when I seen him playing Pearl and Zildjian. I don't know why he changed his mind and his drum company but I do know this. If Pearl made a TL sig snare I would definitely buy one. Or a line. Metal and wood variations

    When you think of Tommy Lee and the Pearl sound, what comes to mind? The Girls, Girls, Girls album? He was playing Sonor for the first three albums and played DW on Dr. Feelgood, so what is the Pearl sound?

    So Sonor and Pearl were making bogus drums?

    I don't know??? What is the signature sound of the Chad Smith snare? Is it supposed to sound like a certain album? Also I think I read where Tommy Lee said he used numerous snares to record his albums. I'm sure there where more than one manufacture in there.

    Not being snarky here Bri. Just throwing question marks. . Cheers
