The new VG-1450 Virgil Donati signature snare drum features a 14" x 5" shell with 4 outer plies of 100% Maple over 4 inner plies of 100% Birch. The 8 ply shell produces a super bright tone accentuated even more by the 4 inner plies of Birch. With a rounded top bearing edge many drummers will find that they can play this drum wide open without any muffling. Virgil selected the snare bed used on Pearl's Philharmonic snares which provide a totally flat bed within the width of the snares for ultimate snare response. The drums impressive styling is capped with Die Cast chrome hoops and a Smoke Flake finish. Other features include chrome plated brass tube lugs, ultra-precise Stainless Steel tension rods and SR-017 Vertical Pull Strainer.

I've unapologetically used Pearl Drums my entire playing life. I did flirt with Tama Starclassic at a local music store, but ultimately I could never stray from Pearl. When I purchased a new kit, I decided to not opt for the Masters snare, but look at the Donati Signature, and I'm very glad I did. I've never played a snare that has the perfect combination of tone and control that this snare has. Do yourself a favor and play this snare, you'll buy it on the spot.
