Nicko McBrain ICARUS Signature Snare Drum

Nicko McBrain ICARUS Signature Snare Drum - FREE Hardcase

SKU: ICA-1465-SN



Nicko McBrain demands the very best. Working closely with the British Drum Company team, Nicko’s no-compromise approach dictated that only the highest standards would make the grade for Icarus.

Hand built in the UK using the British Drum Company’s unique cold-press moulding process, Icarus is a 14” x 6.5” 10ply shell, crafted from Black Oak and finished in a spectacular Black Fishtail Oak veneer, creating a very special appearance reminiscent of a hand-hammered shell - but made from Oak! It really must be seen to be appreciated.

Icarus sounds natural, deep and warm but with a full-bodied presence under higher tension. Designed to powerfully cut through the high volume of rock and metal, Icarus responds equally well to softer, quieter playing, allowing the tonal qualities of the oak to shine through in any musical situation. Icarus gives Nicko the flexibility he needs in the studio. Nicko wouldn’t put his name to just any snare drum, but he’s delighted to put his name to Icarus.
