Enter Now To Win DW’s “Not Tom Sawyer” Contest!

Submit your drum cover to win a Neil Peart Performance Series Time Machine snare drum! 

In honor of Rush's 40th Anniversary Tour which kicked off on May 8th in Tulsa, OK, DW invites drummers and Rush fans alike to enter the "Not Tom Sawyer" video contest. Pay tribute to legendary Rush drummer, Neil Peart by filming yourself playing drums along to your favorite Rush song and enter for a chance to win a DW Performance Series Time Machine snare! This spectacular Performance Series snare drum is an homage to Peart's iconic, steampunk DW Time Machine drumset used on Rush's "Clockwork Angels" tour and was never sold to the public and is not available anywhere at any price! 

 “NOT TOM SAWYER” video contest rules: 

  • Don't send us a "Fly By Night" video – the audio/video quality must be usable. 
  • Use your "Freewill" to pick any Rush track to play except "Tom Sawyer." 
  • Entries must be received by Friday, May 29th. 
  • Winner will be announced on Friday, June 5th at 12:00 pt. 

Best submissions will be featured on the DW Facebook page! Be sure to share your entry on social media using #DWPRESENTS and #NOTTOMSAWYER 

Good luck & get "Working Man!" (OK, even we admit that one went too far)!
