What We Think

DW's hommage to an American classic, the True-Sonic takes all of the great ideas of the Rogers Dyna-sonic and implements some modern innovations and build-quality in true DW fashion. Like the original, the True-Sonic features pre-tensioned snare wires and an adjustable snare bridge that that enhances sensitivity and articulation. The dual-beaded chrome-over-brass shell provides more stability and consistency while delivering that classic brass tone. Complemented with chrome hardware, this snare is rounded out with DW's True-Pitch 50 tension rods, the Mag throw-off, 3-position butt plate, and the 3mm True Hoops. 

Manufacturer's Description from DW Drums

The True-Sonic snare gives a nod to the past and a look to the future with its chrome-over-brass beaded shell and familiar-looking Snare Bridge™. The cast metal Snare Bridge™ is an adjustable, pre-tensioned snare wire system that allows the strands to evenly lift against the surface of the snare head to provide added sensitivity and concert snare-like performance.
