MEGADETH drummer Shawn Drover has issued the following update:
"I am thrilled to inform you that the ddrum Shawn Drover signature snare drum is now available through this link.
"I have been using this snare for the past year now and I swear to you it is the loudest snare I have ever heard!!!!! Yet it also has both great warmth and punch to cut through well in any live setting as well as in the studio (I used this snare on both 'Head Crusher' and 'The Right To Go Insane' from the 'Endgame' record).
"I hope those of you who are interested in obtaining my snare will enjoy it as much as I do.
"Yesterday was a fun-filled day, as we filmed our newest video for 'The Right To Go Insane' which is one of my favorite tracks from 'Endgame' and certainly suitable in lending itself to a great visual medium based on the subject matter.
"Without revealing much (I am old-school, so I don't fancy giving too much info on anything, really), I will say this is going to be a badass video.
"Today will be our final rehearsal before our crew packs up the trucks with our gear to once again hit the Killing Road with our good friends in both EXODUS and TESTAMENT.
"I look forward to seeing you there."
"Endgame" was recorded at Vic's Garage, MEGADETH's brand new, self-built studio in San Marcos, California. The CD was helmed by the band's mainman, Dave Mustaine, and British producer Andy Sneap (EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD).
MEGADETH will join forces with TESTAMENT and EXODUS for a month-long jaunt that will find these thrash titans crisscrossing the nation on the "Rust in Peace" twentieth anniversary tour. These will be incredibly special shows that will delight MEGADETH fans, as the band will be playing its landmark, genre-defining album, 1990's "Rust in Peace", in its entirety, in addition to other MEGADETH setlist favorites.
The tour will kick off on March 1 in Spokane, Washington and will run through the end of the month.
