The classic studio brass snare sound is beautifully presented by DW and their Collectors Series Black Nickel over Brass 5-1/2”x14” Snare Drum! And now it comes at a reduced price!

DW Snare drums are some of the most recorded and toured-with snare drums in the world. Any DW snare drum is a drum that will be used for many years to come.

Utilizing a thin industry-standard 1mm brass shell, and plated with sleek black nickel, the Collectors Series Black Nickel over Brass 5-1/2”x14” Snare Drum is a versatile workhorse snare. Suitable for a variety of musical applications, it offers that sought-after "classic studio brass snare sound" for Rock, Jazz and beyond, offering brightness and cut with a decidedly metallic tonal characteristic, and it can “crack” like you won’t believe! This drum is also available in 6-1/2”x14” depth which will have a deeper fundamental pitch and tone.

Drum Workshop MAG™ Throw-Off:

This snare drum features the DW MAG™ throw-off. A purposefully simple design, the MAG™ is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz. The innovative new 3P, three-position butt plate allows you to easily and accurately toggle between 3 different levels of strainer tension. The combination of the MAG™ throw-off and the 3P Butt Plate is the most reliable and adjustable strainer system DW has ever built.

Drum Workshop TrueHoop Drum Hoops:

To make a better instrument, sometimes you have to go back to the basics. DW spent nearly a year-and-a-half designing and perfecting the most consistent counter hoop they have ever produced. It is called the True Hoop and is a major advancement in the relationship between bearing edge, drum head and counter hoop. As drummers, we know how critical that relationship is to tuning and tone. The True Hoop is just that, round and flat, and without the typical variations you often see around stamped holes. It even has an attractive new touch: a fully-rounded outer edge. The 2.3 mm TrueHoops are factory installed on all Collectors snare drums and in addition to their other features, they are STRONG!

Comments about Drum Workshop Collectors Series Black Nickel Over Brass 5-1/2”X14”:

Great drum, nice right sound, but the coating on the batter head started to wear off after only two weeks. Never had that happen before on a snare in that short of a time,
