  • Vinnie Paul Signature Drums

    The struggling economy has affected quite a few instrument manufacturers, but you wouldn’t know it from ddrum’s mightily awesome booth at NAMM 2009. Along with its usual bevy of cool bangables, the company proudly displayed Vinnie Paul’s new signature kit (complete with huge rack toms), new signature snare, and new signature pedals. Check ’em out below. The rest of our ddrum gallery can be eye humped here.

  • Buy Vinnie Paul’s Cell Phone on eBay

    Seriously. You can actually own Vinnie’s first cell phone, purchased for him by his late brother Dimebag. It’s apparently been stored away in a shoe box for the last fifteen years, and if you’re lucky enough (i.e., rich enough) to have the winning bid, you can stick this piece of “heavy metal history” in your very own shoe box for fifteen more. The winner gets not only the autographed phone but six batteries, a charger, a car charger cord, and the satisfaction of knowing you helped Vinnie get rid of “this fucking Star Trek cell phone made by Motorola.”

    The current top bid is $400. The auction ends on January 19, so there’s plenty of time to take out a loan.
