The RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS and the NFL announced today that the drum set custom built by PEARL DRUMS that Chili Peppers drummer CHAD SMITH will play during the PEPSI SUPER BOWL XLVIII HALFTIME SHOW will be auctioned off at NFL AUCTION (www.nfl.com/auction) to benefit MAKE-A-WISH. Earlier this month, BRUNO MARS invited the Red Hot Chili Peppers to join him during the show. Smith with Pearl Drums, his endorsing company, are offering this kit for auction after the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show which will be broadcast on FOX from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ on Sunday, February 2, 2014.
This drum kit will be a Custom Built “Limited Edition” Series Pearl Drum Set that includes limited edition Sabian Cymbals. After the show, the kit will be broken into two Drum Sets – an AFC kit and an NFC kit. Both the AFC and NFC Drum Sets will be auctioned off to benefit Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Both the AFC and NFC kits will feature all of their respective conference team logos. This Clear Plexiglas Pearl Drum-Set will feature a custom Wrap material provided by Brand Imaging Group and with a lighting package provided by Drumlite.
