      I agree with the person who said that it would be easy to remove the lock nuts. For me they are not needed. When Im trying to adjust a lug the last thing I need is something limiting my travel. Ian Paice in his video says that their worth their weight in gold or something like that so your snare doesn't change on you but I removed the nicely machined nuts and the black washers and I just left the O rings on. They don't do anything for me accept get in my way. So by removing them they don't get in my way when I tune it and so I don't have to also mess with the travel distance or space needed with the lock nut if I want to lower or raise the pitch of the snare. Plus the lock nut also got in the way of the rim of the Head in place under the hoop limiting it's purpose a tad also. I have a Ludwig 402 snare. Not a Vintage model but I would compare this to the one I do have since I can't compare it to a vintage Ludwig 402. I switched the top head with a coated Emperor and the bottom with a clear Embassador. It has a nice deep crack and a smooth tone. Nice heavy rims. I gave this drum a 5.0 because the drum is no better than the guy playing it in many cases and the price is very reasonable. Pearl-Ian Paice!! It's a nice machine! So I recommend it.

      Steel shelled drums get a "bad rap" because of the student model drums that are poorly made with horrible overtones. This drum is a pro level instrument all the way with great construction, tone and features.
      Ian is a great drummer and the features of this drum are practical for the gigging drummer. love the tuning locks as I play a lot of cross sticks in various songs and rim shots in my solo material and the drum really stays tuned all night long. I'm old school so I really like the internal muffler which is better than digging for moongel etc. This is perfect when a little muffling is required. The tube lugs are not the skinny cheap ones like I have on my Pork Pie. These are beefy for sure. The strainer is reliable and smooth.
      It's a Pearl! Which means the overall construction of the drum is excellent. It doesn't sound pingy like a steel drum usually does. It pretty much matches the tone of my Pork Pie BOB (Brass drum). It has plenty of cut and doesn't sound thin. The Chrome job is first rate. I have an aluminum drum (ludwig) and this steel shell drum is every bit it's equal in producing the classic rock pop needed to project through the wall of guitars I play with every weekend. It is a welded shell but the drum is perfectly round and the bearing edges flat and smooth. Top Marks! Incidently, to my ear the tone is equal to my seamless Luddy.
      I picked mine up at a discounted price as a floor model, but even at the higher prices I've seen listed for this drum it is still a bargain. It looks great on stage, it sounds just as good as it looks, It tunes up easily, stays in tune and you can pick it up for a great price What more do you want?

      A Studio Must.

      By Satisfactosaurus

      from Portland

      Comments about Pearl Ian Paice Signature Snare Drum:

      This drum is a fantastic buy for anyone looking for the quintessential rock sound. The body is easy to control and does nothing to mask the booming attack on this drum. It sits exceedingly well in a track and is ultra responsive without being overbearing. I have no complaints about this drum, it's an instant classic.

      This Snare KICKS!!!

      By Strangeman509

      from Carson City, NV

      Comments about Pearl Ian Paice Signature Snare Drum:

      Hey...I got this, tuned it high ( 89 batter, 86 reso via drum dial) and it is a cutting beast! Devastating rim shots. I'll play with it more, maybe try a wetter tuning and see if it really causes some structural damage. :) I'm not sure about these lock nuts, but they can be easily removed if they prove too much of a pain.This snare is very much like a vintage Ludwig 402 (THE snare that made the vintage sounds of Deep Purple, Zeppelin, etc). It's just a fantastic snare--BUY IT!

      Great Studio Snare

      By TheJakeB

      from Macomb, MI

      Comments about Pearl Ian Paice Signature Snare Drum:

      I picked this baby up from a local music shop an i must say it is a great snare. Responsive, thick, and has an overall great tone. My only gripe is that for live purposes it just dosent cut through. Overall i'd say its a fantastic studio snare, but for live play i'd choose something else.

      great drum for small price

      By Beam_Jurango

      from Amsterdam, Holland

      Comments about Pearl Ian Paice Signature Snare Drum:

      I bought this snare simply because i'm a big fan of Mr. Paice. I had to wait four months (Holland) for it. It was worth it. It looks GREAT. The sound is beautiful. For a steel drum it's very warm. The sound of the rim-shots is really superb. The internal muffler becomes handy when you practice with your band. I can't name a disadvantage of this snare (only for people who want a second-hand= exclusive!)

      The ultimate value for money !!!

      By Purfektstranger

      from Montreal

      Comments about Pearl Ian Paice Signature Snare Drum:

      I purchased this snare about six months ago. I knew Ian Paice would never allow his name on anything that didn't sound great. The drum is all chrome with locking lugs which help keep it in tune. This snare sounds better than most snares at double the price. If you want the best value for money in a good looking and good sounding snare...this is the one. I gave it a 10 on 10!

      This drum goes lightest to heavy no problem.

      By swanny-cgyd4

      from williamsville il

      Comments about Pearl Ian Paice Signature Snare Drum:

      This drum is good for the lightest orchestra percussion to the hardest rock. I love this snare because the versatility is whole spectrum, I believe it is the loudest snare and also one the lightest which would be good for concert band or orchestra.

      Great snare for the any genere of music

      By rockclimber13

      from China Grove, NC

      Comments about Pearl Ian Paice Signature Snare Drum:

      this snare is awesome. I use it in our jazz band at school. It gives a great rim shot for rock and is sensitive enough to play the lightest jazz. I would recommend it to anyone.
