Folded up, the low-profile bag is a lightweight, secure way to transport drumsticks.
DW Drums’ Collector’s Series Icon Snare Drums pay tribute to three of the most iconic drummers—Roger Taylor, Neil Peart, and Nick Mason. The drum size and shell configurations are designed as played by each artist. Each features a painstakingly laser-cut, hand-inlayed image created from exotic wood veneers. The Queen drum (pictured) features a crest designed by Freddie Mercury and 24K gold-plated hardware. Neil Peart’s drum recreates the Time Machine motif in wood and the Nick Mason drum recreates the The Dark Side of the Moon prism and waveform image. Each comes with a snare bag, certificate of authenticity, and detailed description of the woods used.

They are available in brightly colored Kenyan Quilt (pictured) or Pharoah’s Script patterns.
