    This drum was released in 2018 and is categorized as a Collaboration Snare Drum with Casey Cooper. It has CL55 lugs and an SR700 strainer. The shell is an interesting mix of 2 inner plies of maple (1.8mm) in the evenply configuration and 4 plies of poplar (5mm) in standard thickness, which means a total of 6 plies at 6.8mm. I don't know of any other Pearl drums that combine plies of evenply thickness along with standard thickness plies. The finish is a custom flame and pinstripe graphic covering along with red gaskets under the lugs and badge.
    At the price point for this drum, I wonder how "collaborative" it really was.

    I'm not really sure how much input any artist has in the drums with their names on them. That would be an interesting process to understand a little more about. I did think it was odd that Pearl has this listed as a "collaboration" drum rather than a "signature" like all of their other artists offerings going back to forever. I imagine it's just a money thing, but who knows....

    Those are nice.

    I also have one except that I've upgraded all of the hardware to the SR- series and Fat Tone hoops. I was never a fan of the chopper hoops.

    It's probably the marketing.

    Pearl might be getting away from the "signature" type of drum these days (as they only have 4 kinds left on the website). It may have also been an issue with the Igniter snare since it's not really associated with a typical touring or recording artist.

    The other issue is the price. The Igniter appeals to the mid-low range market of younger, non-professional players who relate to the YouTube channel and probably wouldn't buy a signature drum with better components.

    That one was unique. Much better than something like the Igniter.

    Basically just the standard Chad Smith snare in green, but a neat looking finish for sure.

    Pearl LMP1480S/C227 14x8 Limited Edition Maple Snare Drum in Satin Black

    This was a Snare Club drum from May 2016. This is basically the precursor to the Modern Utility series that came out in 2017. The only difference is the NDL100 (Decade Maple) lugs and the Limited Edition badge. The shell is 6-Ply (5.4mm) Maple, which is the same as the Decade Maple series that also was released in 2016. The finish is #227 Satin Black. This the same drum as the LMPR1480S/C726 (White Honeycomb) with a different finish.
