Talisman - the steel snare drum Nicko McBrain has been waiting for all his life. 

Talisman has been a labour of love for Nicko. Deeply involved in the design and development of this signature snare drum, Nicko’s passion for engineering excellence played a significant role in bringing Talisman to life. 

Handcrafted in the UK, Talisman is seamlessly spun from British Steel. The characteristic ridges undulating across the outer surface of the 14” x 6.5” shell reveal the artisan’s craft in a signature finish, unique to every single drum. Cool and visually understated, Talisman does not hold back when played. Loud, vibrant and full of tone, the seamless steel shell really sings. Designed by one of the world’s greatest metal drummers, Talisman is not a snare drum to be ignored. 

Nicko McBrain waited a lifetime to play the Talisman snare drum.
