British Drum Company 'Icarus' Snare Drum 14 x 6.5" - Nicko McBrainRegular price £885.00
In terms of looks, the Icarus is a stunner. A real head turner. Nicko McBrain is one of the U.K’s must successful and much loved drummers of all time and as such, would only put his name to a snare drum that he trusts. During the development it was apparent that Nicko’s uncompromising approach would lead to a drum with a build quality of only the highest standards.
The 14” x 6.5”, 10 ply shell is hand built in the U.K, crafted from Black Oak and finished in a beautiful Black Fishtail Oak veneer. The British Drum Co.’s unique cold-press moulding system is used to ensure that the shell is perfect.
Sonically, Icarus sounds natural, warm & deep though it possesses a brighter presence if tensioned higher. It’s particularly designed to pack a powerful punch and cut through in high volume situations forging a backbeat that dominates the stage in a rock or metal situation. It’s also a gentle giant, responding equally well to quieter playing where the tonal qualities of the oak shell can be appreciated.
