Brian Samuel Epstein was a British music entrepreneur, and the manager of The Beatles. He also managed several other musical artists such as Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Cilla Black and The Remo Four. His management company was named NEMS Enterprises, after his family's music stores, called NEMS (North End Music Stores). Epstein paid for The Beatles to record a demo in Decca's studios, which Epstein later persuaded George Martin to listen to, as Decca was not interested in signing the band. Epstein was then offered a contract by Martin on behalf of EMI's small Parlophone label, even though they had previously been rejected by almost every other British record company. Martin later explained that Epstein's enthusiasm and his confidence that The Beatles would one day become internationally famous convinced him to sign them. Epstein died of an accidental drug overdose at his home in London in August 1967. The Beatles' early success has been attributed to Epstein's management and sense of style. Paul McCartney said of Epstein: "If anyone was the Fifth Beatle, it was Brian."
The Stephen Ferrone snare features a 6.5"x14" beaded, seamless aluminum shell that is plated in a satin titanium finish. The 2.3mm triple-flanged hoops and adjustable throw-off are finished in triple-chrome plating as are the new Gretsch tube lugs. Developed in conjunction with Stephen Ferrone, the seamless aluminum shell produces a dry, focused sound with slightly muted overtones. The thin shell and triple-flanged hoops allow the drum to open up and to also create the volume needed for any musical scenario. Twenty-strand snare wires, Remo® drumheads and signature Stephen Ferrone "Star" badge complete this unique snare. · Produkt-Code: S-6514A-SF · Kesseldurchmesser: 14" (35,56 cm) · Kesseltiefe: 6,5" (16,51 cm) · Kesselmaterial: Aluminium · Kesseloberfläche: poliert · Spannreifen: Stahl 2.3 mm · Stimmschrauben: 10 · Kesselhardware: Chrom · Farbe: Plated Aluminium · Zubehör: Stimmschlüssel · Besonderheit(en): Stephen Ferrone signature series "Star" badge · Signature-Modell · Kesselgrundfarbe: Snare Drum
A classic chrome-over-brass with a difference. The Bluebird shell is 14" x 6" deep with double-beads to focus the sound and combined with our Palladium hardware create subtle nuances that boost the synergy between the shell, the heads and the snare wires to produce a musical rather than metallic sound. The Bluebird also delivers superb response sensitivity across whole batter head meaning you can play well-defined rimshots, while side-sticking will be tight and cutting. This broad response sensitivity also means accuracy brushwork takes on a fuller and richer dimension - digging in delivers more punch - rolls are articulated and cut clearly - and accents can be seriously ripping. Above all the Bluebird is designed to cut through in any situation. Even raging guitars can’t bury this drum. And it’s not a matter of having to play harder to be heard; this chrome beauty cuts through the chaos with ease. · Produkt-Code: BB-1460-SN · Kesseldurchmesser: 14" (35,56 cm) · Kesseltiefe: 6" (15,24 cm) · Kesselmaterial: Messing · Kesseloberfläche: verchromt · Spannreifen: 2.3 mm Stahl, Triple Flange · Stimmschrauben: 10 · Kesselhardware: Chrom · Farbe: Chrome Finish · Zubehör: Stimmschlüssel · Besonderheit(en): 1.2 mm starker Messing Kessel mit Verstärkungspfalz · Kesselaufbau: Gewalzt · Kesselstärke: 1,2 mm · Produktionsland: Great Britain · Snareabhebung: Palladium Strainer · Messingkessel · Snareteppich: Original British Drum Co. mit 20 Spiralen aus Messing · Kesselgrundfarbe: Chrome · Resonanzfell: Remo USA Hazy · Schlagfell: Remo USA Batter Snare Drum
