This year sees Nicko McBrain celebrate 20 years with Premier. And to honour this anniversary we are proud to introduce Nicko’s Sicko snare drum: designed to meet Nicko’s demanding performances this is a snare drum like no other.

Nicko’s Sicko snare drum is beautifully handcrafted by Premier in the UK. It is produced with a 100% sycamore, 10mm thick, 16 ply shell.

The characteristic warmth of the sycamore with the added attack from the 10mm thick shell gives this snare drum a warm yet powerful punch with plenty of sensitivity. It is finished off with a classic, no frills look featuring an outer ply of “silver shimmer” sycamore with a hand rubbed satin oil finish.
