Gift idea: A Dave Grohl signature snare drum

First, a note for non-drummers. DW–Drum Workshop–is a brand of drums favoured by everyone from Queen’s Roger Taylor to Sheila E. In fact, there are dozens of drummers who endorse the company’s products. That includes Dave Grohl.

Someone of his status gets to design his own custom drums from the ground up: depth, shell design, hardware, finish–the works. And given that the snare is the most important part of anyone’s kit. you want to make sure that you get it absolutely right.

Behold Dave’s DW ICON snare.
