e great cities of the Industrial Revolution, except the logs that were lost before reaching their destination. These logs became waterlogged in transit and settled to the bottom of the lakes. Forgotten, these sunken timbers - some of them up to 1200 years old - have remained at the bottom of lakes and rivers for over a century, untouched and perfectly preserved in the icy cold waters of the North.Recently maple and birch logs were rediscovered in Lake Superior, salvaged, and sold for premium prices to high-end furniture craftsmen and boutique instrument manufacturers.I feel very privileged to have this drum in my collection.Noble & Cooley Star ClassicThis is one of two identical snares I played on the critically acclaimed Paul McCartney world tour of 1989/90. After the tour I kept both drums, because not only do I love their sound, but also they remind me of the most exciting time in my career so far.For Superior Custom & Vintage I wanted to add something special. So I asked Peter Stanbridge to craft two Jarrah-ply wood hoops for one of the drums. Like Craviotto, Stanbridge is a lone artisan, building unique drums from exotic woods out of his Newfoundland workshop, 15 minutes from the most easterly point in North America.Noble & Cooley Alloy Classic and Zildjian DrumN&C built an enviable reputation on the superb quality of their wood shell drums. Towards the end of the 1980s they decided to branch out into metal, first in collaboration with the Zildjian company and then on their own with the Alloy Classic. The Zildjian drum, made from the same secret alloy as Zildjian cymbals, was an extremely expensive limited edition when it first appeared in 1989. The Alloy Classic was much more reasonably priced and is still available from Noble & Cooley today. While on tour with McCartney, I mentioned to Bob Gatzen - N&Cs design guru - that they didnt have a metal shell drum to rival the quality and success of their Star Series snares. He may have already had that in mind because an early prototype showed up for me to take on the1991/92 Dire Straits world tour. This was recorded for The Custom & Vintage SDX.Canopus ZelkovaSeen by many collectors as the ultimate, this snare drum is bored out of a solid block of Zelkova -a Japanese hardwood prized for its density and resonance. Its a construction method that owes more to traditional Japanese Taiko drums than Western-style snare drums we are more used to playing.Im surprised to learn the Zelkova has been around since 1978. Perhaps its because Canopus is drwarfed by other well-known Japanese drum companies like Tama, Pearl and Yamaha, or because its ferociously expensive and available only to order from Japan.In any case, you are unlikely to see one of these drums unless its in the hands of a collector or studio drummer.Noonan 5 x 12 Solid Mahogany Snare DrumGary Noonan is one of a kind; a boutique drum-maker from England. Another rare breed is the solid drum, hollowed out from a single block of wood. In Noonans case, its a small sized, mahogany drum. The manufacturing process involves Gary taking a solid block of mahogany, mounting it on a lathe, and then turning it until left with a single 12 diameter snare shell. Its very labour intensive and expensive as large blocks of wood frequently have flaws in them. There is no flaw in the end result. This drum took me by surprise. Im so over the piccolo snare, but still wanted to sample a broad range of snare drums. The Noonan brought a smile to my face however. Its a drum with attitude... and so much fun to play.Slingerland Radio King Select Snare DrumOne of the drum sets recorded for Custom & Vintage is a 1990s Slingerland Studio King. We were inspired to record the Slingy kit after we were so impressed with a Slingerland snare drum that came from the same source - Mike Udell at Drumhire in London. A 6.5 x 14 Radio King Select. The top of the range 1990s reissue of a solid, one piece classic, signed by Slingerland drum finish guru Pat Foley himself.WFL Maple 6.5 x 14 Snare DrumThis is a 1930s model, which would place it very close to the beginnings of the WFL Drum Company. WFL are the initials of William F Ludwig. The origins of Ludwig drums can be traced back to 1909, when as a young drummer, William Ludwig was playing â€œrag time music with a snare drum and a bass drum operated by a simple foot pedal. The pedal was neither powerful nor fast and William set about to design a better solution. Along with two other family members...
Vintage Rock EZX®The Vintage Rock Brushes and Sticks EZX® contains recordings of the legendary Ludwig Keystone Drum Set.The Ludwig Drum Company had little idea what was about to hit them in the months following February 9th 1964, The Beatles debut U.S. Television appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The band were a sensation and almost overnight everyone wanted to own a set of Ludwig drums just like Ringos. In fact, Ludwig were still struggling to keep up with demand when along came another drumming icon John Bonham. As well as his use of the Supraphonic snare drum, Bonham popularised larger sizes, including the 24 bass drum similar to the one sampled for the Vintage Rock Brushes and Sticks EZX®. This 60s era Ludwig set belongs to 2khz Studio owner Nick Yeatman and we were very happy he lent it to us so we could capture that phat and funky Ludwig sound.The Ludwig Keystone Kit was played by Chris Whitten and mixed by producer Peter Henderson and Mattias Eklund from Toontrack® Music. To it we´ve added the classic Ludwig Black Beauty and Slingerland Radio King snares and a number of cool complimentary cymbals.
