TAMPA, Fla. (April 1, 2021) – ddrum™ is proud to announce the release of the Vinnie Paul Limited Edition Commemorative Snare Drum. This snare is limited to 250 drums worldwide and is available now at authorized ddrum dealers. The custom dragon wrap on the 8x14 maple shell was conceived by the legendary Pantera, Hellyeah and Damageplan drummer, and based on the hat he loved and wore religiously.
The Vinnie Paul snare is a flashback to the original ddrum signature model built for Vinnie when he joined the company. The limited-edition commemorative snare drum features an eight-ply North American maple shell with 45-degree inner and 30-degree outer bearing edges with slight round-over. In addition, the drum features chrome hardware, a premium snare throw-off, 10 double-sided ddrum turret lugs, and die-cast hoops for increased tuning stability, and overall rim shot clarity and volume.
“I’ve spent years working on these snares for Vinnie,” said Paul’s longtime drum tech Patrick King (aka ‘PKING’). “This snare resonates on so many levels with me. It rings in my ears (literally and figuratively) and through my core. This snare is not just a snare. It’s an extension of Vince. His sound. His heart. His legacy.”
The ddrum Vinnie Paul Limited Edition Commemorative Snare Drum includes a special synthetic leather bag and sells for $499.00 at authorized ddrum dealers while supplies last. For more information and to see the rest of the ddrum product line, go to www.ddrum.com.
