This limited edition 6 1/2×14 snare features a shell and hoops constructed from blocks of rare amboyna and afzelia burl woods, African blackwood, and figured bubinga. It also comes with gold-plated hardware, a hand-carved amboyna burl throw-off handle with Swarovski crystals, and a solid amboyna badge. Each drum is numbered inside the shell and signed by Sucherman and the builder, Pete Stanbridge, and comes with a velvet-lined black walnut case. Also included is a twenty-page photo album detailing the drum’s construction, plus an amboyna burl drum key set and a pen, flashlight, or pocketknife constructed from African blackwood or bubinga. Sucherman inspects each Empyrean snare before it’s shipped to the client along with a pair of tickets for a Styx concert and two after-show passes.
