11/30/2018: SJC x OBEY x Frank Zummo donate to Silverlake Conservatory of Music!
We're incredibly honored to have collaborated with OBEY and Frank Zummo on the Limited Edition 'Rise Above' Snare and were able to donate the proceeds to a scholarship for Silverlake Conservatory of Music after a successful release! Our teams are proud to support and inspire those who pursue the arts!
In an effort to celebrate the arts through the fusion of music, street art, and craft, we teamed up with Shepard Fairey of OBEY and Frank Zummo of Sum 41 to create the Rise Above Limited Edition Snare! Only 25 of these snares were made, each with their own Certificate of Authenticity (signed by Shepard, Frank, and Mike Ciprari of SJC Drums), as well as a unique serial label and birth certificate numbered #1 - 25.
The snare features custom “Rise Above” artwork designed completely by Shepard and is based on the first collaboration kit we created for Frank Zummo! At the front of the snare is a custom wooden badge with the OBEY logo and Frank’s signature. On the opposite side, we’ve included custom OBEY Giant badges that are handcrafted for each shell. We worked carefully with Frank to achieve his signature sound; full with plenty of attack to cut through in a live setting while maintaining sensitivity and responsiveness for the studio!
