Tre Cool Teams Up with SJC Drums

Posted by - 01:23 PM on 01/24/14
Tre Cool (Green Day) has joined SJC Custom Drums.
To celebrate the new alliance, SJC Drums will be releasing a Limited Edition kit & snare at the 2014 NAMM show January 23, 2014 in Anaheim, CA. Only 13 Limited Edition Tré Cool Bunny kits and 13 matching snares will be available for purchase. The design pays homage to the classic “Cane & Top Hat” kit, SJC's Mike Ciprari explains the design: “I knew Tré was a huge vintage drum collector, so I wanted to design a kit that paid homage to a classic design, yet had the Tré Cool flare to it." All Tré Cool drums will be handcrafted by SJC Drums in their Massachusetts, USA workshop and will come bearing Tré’s signature to approve the drum’s quality and authenticity. To top it all off SJC will be making 20 very special “Dookie 20th anniversary” snare drums to celebrate the life of the 1994 record, “Dookie”. The SJC team went above and beyond by getting ahold of the actual snare used on the recording to ensure the most genuine product possible.

big score for SJC, albeit a bit late in Tré's career.

Tre has had such a signature sound for most of Green Day's career so I'm wondering how his tones will be on his next recording. I really want that snare!

That's gotta' be their "biggest" endorsement. SJC throws together some very attractive kits and this is no exception.

GROSS!

Also, I really hope SJC isn't giving him kits for free, ask Slingerland how that worked out for them.

Most of the earlier stuff was Leedy/Ludwig, Slingerland and Ayottes.

On the last 5 or so records or any that say Chris Lord Alge on the back it's been the same snare and kick samples that CLA has gained a reputation for using. It's definitely a sound that works them though.

a huge endorsement like Green Day is worth a free kit or two I would assume.

Great interview/link. Thanks!

If he doesn't smash a kit every night. I don't think he does that anymore after the Slingerland ordeal.
