Celebratory Nicko's Sicko snare drum launched
24 January 2013
Premier are proud to introduce 'Nicko's Sicko' snare drum at this year's NAMM Show, celebrating Nicko's 20 year relationship with the company.
Nicko McBrain joined Premier's artist roster in 1993 and to honour this anniversary, Premier are introducing a special edition 14" x 5.5" snare drum: designed to meet Nicko's demanding performances.
Handcrafted in Premier's manufacturing facility in Lancashire, England, 'Nicko's Sicko' is a snare drum like no other. It is produced with a 100% sycamore, 10mm thick, 16-ply shell.
The characteristic warmth of the sycamore with the added attack from the 10mm thick shell gives this snare drum a warm yet powerful punch with plenty of sensitivity.
Finished with a 'silver shimmer' outer ply of sycamore with a hand rubbed oil finish, this snare also includes 2.3mm chrome plated triple-flange steel hoops, a 0610 quick release heavy-duty snare strainer and chrome plated British Collection solid brass tube lugs.
The drum also features two touches inspired by Nicko: a Remo Emperor X coated batter head and 42 strand snare wire.
