Anderson .Paak has collaborated with the acclaimed drum brand Ludwig for a limited edition snare drum kit. The Silk Sonic artist’s Pee .Wee Signature Drum Collection consists of his first-ever signature snare drum paired with a plush drum rug.
“I can’t believe it’s really happening! Before I wanted anything, I wanted my own signature snare drum,” .Paak said. “The snare drum is something really custom and unique to your sound. Even if you just have the kick and the snare and high hat – the way you tune your stuff, sometimes, you don’t need all the chops; sometimes it’s just about the sound.”
The kit is designed to serve as the drummer’s all-purpose tool. Each drum kit is autographed by .Paak himself, with only 500 editions of the exclusive kits created, split between a 5 by 14-inch (127 by 356-mm) model priced at $799 USD and a 6.5 by 14-inch (165 by 356-mm) model going for $849 USD. Just 250 of the non-slip rubber backed rugs are available for $149 USD.
The Pee .Wee Signature Collection is available for pre-order on the Ludwig Reverb Shop. Watch the viral clip of the
