The VG-1450 Virgil Donati Signature Snare Drum is inspired by the Reference Series and features an 8 ply 50/50 blended maple and birch shell with rounded bearing edge. In drum talk, thicker is louder and the 8 plies on the Virgil Donati Signature Snare supplies plenty of loudness. Virgil wanted more so Pearl blended birch to the inner plies for added brightness and cut.

The rounded top bearing edge supplies just the right amount of overtone control and allows the drum to be played wide open without muffling in many situations. The VG-1450 features Pearl's 'Philharmonic' snare bed that is totally flat within the width of the snares for ultimate snare response. Tube lugs, die cast hoops, and stunning Smoke Flake sparkle lacquer finish add the finishing touches to this outstanding snare drum.
