Everyone at Drum Workshop is honored to present this very special ICON snare drum to good friend and drumming legend, Jim Keltner. His contributions to the drum community and music industry at large are well documented.

His passion for the art form and stylistic integrity are captured with this ICON snare drum, which is crafted from 11 plies of North American hard rock maple featuring VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) grain orientation. Finished with intricate laser-cut, exotic and dyed-wood inlays inspired by Jim’s vintage Collector’s Series kit, his signature aviator sunglasses and "Oooeeee" custom license plate, it’s a collectable and highly playable instrument.

The 6.5 x 14” drum is outfitted with Jim’s favorite mini-turret lugs in weathered-looking Antique Bronze and comes standard with matching True-Hoops and MAG throw-off system, True-Pitch Tuning, True-Tone snare wires, and DW Heads by Remo. Signed by John Good and numbered, only 250 will ever be made.
