The OCDP 25-ply Maple Snare has been custom engineered
for the hard-hitting drummer
with an independent, no-compromise style. OCDP has built a long respected reputation for high quality drums that stand out from the pack, and the new 25-ply Maple Snare extends that legacy well into the future.
This is not your grandfather's snare drum. With 25 plies of solid maple, the ultra heavy OCDP 25-ply Maple Snare is a serious drum, built for maximum tone and ultimate control. From subtle dynamics to a powerful crack, the new OCDP 25-plly Maple Snare is all about attitude - massive, fat tone, with a deep, powerful attack and a crisp, biting decay. This is the snare you reach for when it's time to break out the big back beat.
The new OCDP 25-ply Maple Snare fuses 25 maple plies into a 14-inch by 7-inch dual port package that looks as slamming as it sounds, with a cool silver sparkle fade finish and OCDP's signature offset lugs. It also features die-cast hoops and sleek black nickel plated hardware. It comes fitted with a premium Remo UT coated batter side head, and 20 steel strand snappy snares, adjustable via a standard OCDP forward throw-off.
"The snare is the centerpiece of a drummer's kit, and an expression of their personality," remarked OCDP Product Manager Gerry Helfrich "The new OCDP 25-plly Maple Snare drum delivers a big, bold, edgy sound that stands up and gets noticed. It's as individual as you and your music."
The OCDP 25-ply snare drum is available exclusively at Guitar Center and Musician's Friend.
EAGLE ROCK ENTERTAINMENT TO RELEASE DVD OF “ROCKPALAST” FROM MARLEY’S ULTIMATE UPRISING TOUR
ORIGINALLY CAPTURED FOR GERMANY’S FAMED TV CONCERT SERIES – NOW FULLY RESTORED FOR THE FIRST TIME
~DVD, DVD+2CD, AND DIGITAL VIDEO OUT NOVEMBER 24, 2014~
On November 24, 2014, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Uprising Live! by Bob Marley on DVD, DVD + CD set, and Digital Video [Pre-book Order Date October 31, MSRP $14.98 DVD, TBA DVD+2CD]. This is the first ever DVD release of this classic concert, which originally aired on the famed German television series Rockpalast, fromBob Marley’s final tour.
The Uprising Tour ran in Europe from May 30th to July 13th 1980 with five further dates in the USA in September. It was Bob Marley’s last tour before his tragically early death in May 1981 at the age of just 36. The tour was in support of the Uprisingalbum, (released June 10th 1980) and just a few days later, this show would be filmed from Dortmund’s Westfalenhalle. Now,Rockpalast is presented here on DVD for the first time, with footage fully restored under supervision of Cedella Marley and Ziggy Marley.
On Uprising Live!, Bob Marley is in superb form and delivers a set full of energy and charisma, including the icon songs “No Woman, No Cry,” “Exodus,” “I Shot The Sheriff,” “Redemption Song,” “Is This Love,” “Jamming,” “Get Up, Stand Up,” “Could You Be Loved” and many more. The show opens with a short set by the I Threes – Marley’s backing vocalists – who traditionally would perform a few songs before Marley took the stage.
February 6th 2015 will be, what would have been, Bob Marley’s 70th birthday and, with very few Bob Marley live concerts available on DVD, Uprising Live! will be a welcome addition for any fan.
