A snare designed for Prince's longtime live backbeat, John Blackwell.

The John Blackwell Signature snare drum from Hendrix Drums features a padauk stave shell and high-end hardware appointments. Padauk has a reputation for being one of the best tone woods available. It is the most commonly used wood for high-end marimbas, and its crystal clear tone translates beautifully into snare drums.

Hardware includes brass S counterhoops, a 3-position R7 throw off and carbon steel snares. With an articulate and ear-grabbing sound, it was one of the crowd favorites at the Hendrix Drums booth at the 2016 NAMM show and is the wood of choice for Hendrix Drums artist John Blackwell.
