Vinnie Paul's personal Pearl Vinnie Paul Signature VP1480 14x8" Snare Drum 1 of 1 Artist PROTOTYPE made for legendary Pantera - Damageplan - Hell Yeah drummer Vinnie Paul by Pearl. This was owned by Vinnie and used by him in the studio and put on display in his home where the Dallas Stars NHL hockey team famously threw the championship Stanley Cup into Vinnie's swimming pool while partying, denting the Cup in the process! Our studio received Vinnie's prototype directly from his estate after his untimely passing. 

Our studio posted an unboxing video of the Vinnie Paul snare collection on YouTube, which received tens of thousands of views... including from Mike Farriss, the head of Artist Relations at Pearl! Mike commented on our video:

"I am the guy that helped Vinnie develop those Pearl Signature snares. I was his Artist Rep for almost his whole time at Pearl. It is great to see those snares again. I hope you enjoy them... No big challenges in the development of that snare. More creating a look and vibe that fit Vinnie. It is a great sounding and affordable snare. The reason there are 2 versions is because Vinnie picked two snake skin finishes and want two prototypes made so he could see them side by side. Once he made his decision we were off to manufacturing. His snare was our number 1 best seller that first year... Vinnie was a great guy to work with and the most hospitable artist ever. His door was always open and a drink was waiting for you. Sure do miss that guy and his whole crew... Dime, Guy Sykes, Kim Zide, Kat and Crusher were the best in the business."

This is one of the two prototype snares presented to Vinnie by Pearl, with him ultimately choosing the different color & pattern python snakeskin on the other prototype we also have available. What you see here is the only one in the world with lots of strikes on the drum head from Vinnie Paul himself! Vinnie Paul's personal Pearl promotional poster hung in his home and seen here is also available in a separate listing.
