Slipknot’s Jay Weinberg was in cahoots with SJC Custom Drums and finally debuted his menacing kit with killer patina! Meticulously handcrafted by the magicians over at SJC using extra thick 9 ply Maple shells with re-rings covered in an evil looking ghost black satin stain with Slipknot stars and gold splatter. The matching distressed hardware really ties the kit together.
Mike Ciprari of SJC Drums told us that Jay was seeking an aged patina aesthetic and achieved this with incorporating the Slipknot 9 pointed star and “had the idea last minute to do some gold splatter on the shells!” Notice those intense hoops around the drums? Jay loved the look of the extended front hoop on his bass drum so they continued that theme around the entire kit. To make it even more unique, SJC hand splattered the shells (inside and out) in gold so that no drum is the same and also splattered the hardware too. “This is the third kit we’ve built for Jay and the band” comments Mike who looks forward to seeing it live on the Slipknot Summer Tour. Shell sizes are:
- 20×22 (Two)
