What We Think

Brass snare drums have a mystique that has had drummers mesmerized for decades. With so many shell styles available, very few drums become an immediate stand out from the rest. Enter the DW Collectors Bell Brass snare drum.

On the outside, this drum looks like a standard issue polished brass snare drum with matching hardware. Where this drum differs is in the shell. Starting with a 3mm shell without reinforcing rings, the brass is carefully formed into the sound of legends. The shell is nearly three times the thickness of standard-issue metal drums and with that comes a tone like no other. The thicker shell wall delivers full-bodied shell notes with each rimshot while still allowing dynamic players the sensitivity for crispy ghost notes. The ten lug configuration combined with the True-Pitch 50 tension rods gives you the widest tuning range possible down to the granular level.

This snare drum weighs in at 16lbs so it's not for everyone, but if you are after a drum that needs to handle high volume situations with ease you may have found your new favorite drum

Manufacturer's Description from DW Drums

Rolled from a heavy-gauge brass alloy, this is heavier shell than most beaded-style brass snares. The sound is distinctively brass, but with more body and fatness at low midrange frequencies and a beautiful high-end crack. Available in a polished brass finish. The drum can be customized in any of five Custom Shop drum hardware color options. Every drummer should own a brass snare for recording and live applications.
