Signature oak snare drum hand-crafted for Nicko McBrain, longtime drummer for Iron Maiden

As the drummer for heavy metal gods Iron Maiden, Nicko McBrain demands the very best from his snare drum. Working closely with the British Drum Co. team, Nicko allowed no compromises in designing and crafting his Icarus signature snare drum. Hand-built in the UK using the British Drum Co.’s unique cold-press moulding process, Icarus features a 14x6.5” shell crafted from 10 plies of Black Oak and finished in a spectacular Black Fishtail Oak veneer. This unique veneer process makes for a very special appearance, reminiscent of a hand-hammered shell—but made from nothing but oak. The design has to be seen to be appreciated.

Icarus sounds natural, deep and warm, but with a bright presence under higher tension. Designed to powerfully cut through the high volume of rock and metal, Icarus responds equally well to softer, quieter playing, allowing the tonal qualities of the oak to shine through in any musical situation. Nicko wouldn’t put his name to just any snare drum, and after painstaking work on the part of British Drum Co., he has the oak powerhouse he always dreamed about.
