Neil Peart’s drums for the upcoming R40 tour have an amazing story to tell, that even non-drummers can appreciate.

When Rush performs in Denver this July, you will see and hear a master playing drums that were fifteen-hundred years in the making. Neil Peart’s drums for the upcoming R40 tour have an amazing story to tell, that even non-drummers can appreciate. Find out why The Professor fell in love with them and get a peek into his passion.

They started in a bog in Romania and now,  DW Drum Designer John Good and Neil Peart have teamed up to create a one-of-a kind R40 kit crafted from Romanian River Oak and a plethora (yes, plethora) of intricate laser-cut exotic woods.

To commemorate Rush’s 40th Anniversary and the making of the R40 kit, a limited number of 250 replica Icon snare drums will be produced. For you salivating drummers with fat wallets, a signed-and-numbered certificate of authenticity and deluxe carrying bag will accompany each drum and a percentage of the proceeds will benefit Neil’s charity of choice.
