Chad Smith and Pearl introduce the results of their renewed collaboration, which will be officially presented at NAMM 2015.
The team reworked the Chad Smith’ original 14“ x 5“ steel signature snare and improved it with the CS1450R, a time-limited model available with a Candy Apple Red finish and equipped with SuperHoop II hoops, 10 rods, CL-55 lugs and an SR-015 strainer.
This snare will be available for the street price of $469.
The Pearl Chad Smith Free Floater (CS1465F) is a brand new design with a 14“ x 5“ floating frame. It ships with two 3mm brass and one steel rings that can be easily interchanged to vary the tone of the snare. It employs MasterCast hoops, 10 rods, FT84 lugs and an SR-1000F strainer. Pearl says that only 50 models will be available in the US (no information about the availability worldwide) for $959.
