Special-edition snare drum to celebrate PDP's 20th anniversary, with a limited-edition finish and antique bronze hardware
PDP by DW is twenty years old this year, and we here at Musician’s Friend are excited to offer their 20th anniversary snare drum, a 14” black-and-bronze stunner that will only be available in 2020. Pacific Drums and Percussion began as a way for DW to bring its famous craftsmanship to a price point that works for students and gigging drummers. It used many of the pioneering techniques that made Drum Workshop famous, while cutting out the extras to keep costs lower. But in the two decades since, PDP has made a name for itself far beyond that initial mission. It’s a respected maker of high-quality drums and hardware for beginners, pros and everyone in between. This special limited-edition snare drum, with a finish developed for the anniversary, is a chance for you to share in that legacy for years to come.
Classic maple shell with a futuristic finishThere is no material more timeless in American drums than maple. It’s the go-to wood for a warm, deep studio sound. It’s fitting that PDP would build this snare with a 10-ply maple shell in 14x6.5” size, for a classic wood “crack” that sounded just as good 20 years ago as it does today. But in a nod to the future, PDP also developed an exclusive finish just for this anniversary release. This black finish features a matte texture, with a glossy stripe through the middle. This isn’t some flashy novelty finish—it’s a subtle, dark theme that becomes more complex the closer you look.
Antique bronze hardware for an elegant lookAnother stunning design point on this special PDP snare is the bronze hardware, plated with an antique coating that gives it a classic, broken-in appearance. This bronze color appears on everything from the PDP dual lugs to the triple-flange hoops and DW MAG throw-off. It gives the drum a commemorative touch that, just like the finish, is gorgeous yet understated.
Don’t miss your chance to own this collector’s itemPDP will be making this snare available in 2020 only, and then this eye-catching color scheme will be gone forever. You won’t just be adding a collector’s item to your rig, but also an excellent maple snare with a thick shell and sturdy DW touches that put it up there with professional snare drums. Musician’s Friend is also offering the matching 4-piece 20th anniversary shell pack, sold separately.
