Neil Peart R40 snare drum

At NAMM 2015 this week, DW announced that the Neil Peart R40 14 x 6.5 snare drum will be available for purchase. All Pro Percussion has a listing for the snare with an estimated delivery date of April 2015. It's listed for $1,499.55, which is the same price as the Neil Peart ICON Time Machine Snare. Note that this drum features the same level of exotic inlay artwork as well, meaning that the designs on the drum are produced by different wood types and colors (as opposed to graphics).

Here's the description:

In celebration of Rush's 40th Anniversary Tour, Drum Workshop, Inc. (DW Drums) is releasing the Neil Peart R40 snare drum. Just like Neil's R40 touring kit, this DW Icon series snare features exotic inlay artwork from previous Rush albums and gold plated hardware. Each snare includes DW's Mag Throw-Off with 3 position butt plate and a DW Deluxe Snare Drum Bag.
