Pearl signature Jimmy DEGRASSO 14x5.5 : la opinión de moosers (content in English)
The Pearl Jimmy Degrasso Snare drum is a custom drum, made to the specs of drummer Jimmy Degrasso. Jimmy is a hard rock drummer who has toured and recorded with all sorts of well known artists, including Alice Cooper and Megadeth. I don’t believe that they’re making the drum any longer, and don’t know how many were even made. The drum has a 14” diameter and is 5.5” tall as well. The drum also has a really cool looking gold finish that helps it stand out if nothing else. I don’t know much about it’s make up beyond this as I’m primarily not a drummer and don’t get into too much detail when it comes to the materials being used to make drums like this. It’s a really solid sounding snare drum as I recently got the chance to use it for a recording session. It wasn’t the only snare drum that we were using, but was the main one and we’d switch it out whenever it was called for. It’s definitely a rock snare drum as I don’t think I’d use it for anything other than straight up rock and heavier forms of the genre. It’s got a nice crack to it that really translates well on recording as I think we got a really great sound with it. I don’t know if I’d recommend it outside of the studio unless you’re going to be limited to playing this kind of music and/or have a few different snare drums you’re going to be using. Since they are no longer making the Pearl Jimmy Degrasso Snare, I’d imagine that they’re pretty hard to come by as I can’t imagine that they made too many of them. It’s a really cool snare drum even if you aren’t familiar with Jimmy Degrasso, although I don’t know if it would be worth the hassle to seek out since it’s most likely going to be pretty difficult to find. I don’t know what it would cost if you could find one either, but it’s definitely worth a quick look into for fan’s of Jimmy and beyond.
