Bo - it kinda looks like a clown snare. It has colored stripes, and a rendition of sunglasses and a California license plate. It's $1,495. For that much money I can find a Craviotto or N&C.
Is the "Low Class" Drummers thesis that far off? To put it another way: is attaching the name of "Jim Keltner" to this snare worth a premium? Signed by John Good and numbered, only 250 will ever be made. Is it worth the premium?View attachment 87398
The "ugliness" is based on one of Keltner's kits that he used on hundreds of recordings. . .there was a Concept behind the design.
Personally, I didn't know who Keltner was. I even watched the video when it came out a month ago or so. Didn't even bother looking him up. It's hard to know who EVERY great musician is. With that said, I'm not saying he doesn't deserve it, nor am I trying to sell a drum.
