The Whip
The Whip - Chris Layton Signature Model

The JNDC Limited Edition Chris Layton Signature Model, known as “The Whip” is a drum inspired by the restoration of Chris Layton’s vintage snare drum used throughout his tenure with Stevie Ray Vaughn. The drum features a thin bronze JNDC Modern Classic shell with a deep lustrous black nickel-plated finish and sealed in clear lacquer. “The Whip” also features custom engraving by John Aldridge and 1.8mm nickel over steel hoops, which affords the drum a softer feel. Hand-selected for its’ warmth and vibrance, “The Whip” is extremely musical and “bell-like” in its’ tonal quality, yet very articulate and focused in responsiveness. The bronze shell exhibits a powerful mid-range and low-end frequencies with a pronounced “crack”, or “crack of the whip” quality.

The Whip is a JNDC Limited Edition Model, as only 25 drums will be made honoring Chris Layton’s contribution to our industry. The Whip also features ten solid brass bright nickel-plated Corder tube lugs, bell-flanged bearing edges, vintage-inspired crimped snare beds, 24k gold-plated brass JNDC feather motif drum badge, and the bright nickel-plated proprietary cast bronze JNDC “One Touch Classic” snare drum strainer (throw-off) system.

A certificate of authenticity, serialized lapel badge, JNDC Strainer Tutorial Link, and a complimentary embroidered softshell case accompany each instrument. The JNDC The Whip is only available in a 5x14 size.
