According to a posting on the RUSH fan site Power Windows, the November Guitar Center catalog includes a new item that will make some RUSH fan's holiday season a happy one. Coming this month to select Guitar Center stores, the Neil Peart signature "Snakes & Arrows" snare drum. Guitar Center will be selling the snare for $899.99, with no payments until 2009.According to a Guitar Center ad, "this stunning 6"x14" snare features an aztec red finish with handpainted gold leaf and metallic gray 'Snakes & Arrows' graphics. The finish is done by DW master craftsman Louie Garcia, who paints Neil Peart's own drums. DW's unique black diamond hardware is made of nickle, but it's as hard and durable as chrome. The all-maple shell utilized DW's propietary VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) design, with a verticl grain pattern that allows for a lower overall tone without sacrificing resonance and attack. The special batter head features a printed Neil Peart signature. Everything about this drum was designed in accordance with Neil Peart. This is the same snare Neil is currently using on the 'Snakes & Arrows' tour. See it first at Guitar Center."
