Mapex - Carmine Appice's 1990s 5.5x14" Brass Master Snare Drum, Brass Lugs (#2)

From the Carmine Appice Collection at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault in Seattle, WA. 

It’s impossible to adequately describe Carmine’s massive impact on the drum world. He redefined rock drumming with his innovative playing with Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Beck Bogart and Appice, Rod Stewart, Ozzy Osborne, Edgar Winter, Ted Nugent and more. He literally “wrote the book” on rock drumming with his “Realistic Rock” drum method, the best selling rock drum book of all time. He introduced the rock drum world to China cymbals and gongs that are now commonplace on the modern drum set. Carmine is without a doubt, one of the most influential and innovative drummers of our time.

We've just acquired a huge collection of drum gear directly from Carmine Appice. This is just one piece of the collection currently available here at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault.

One of the first drum's Carmine received at the beginning of his endorsement relationship with Mapex Drums in the mid-1990s. Mapex 5.5x14" Brass Master Snare drum with brass lugs and 2.3mm Power Hoops. Great condition. Only minor scuffs in a few places. Hand signed Aquarian RockDot Snare Batter side head on top and Remo Ambassador Snare side head on the bottom.

This drum is one of the snares Carmine used on his Guitar Zeus series of recordings as well as recording sessions in Japan during the 1990s.

The batter side head was hand signed by Carmine Appice after the photos were taken. Includes a COA signed by the seller and Carmine Appice.
