What We Think

The DW Collector's Series Carbon Fiber snare drum is a relatively new addition to the Collectors Series family of drums. After many years and several prototypes, the Carbon Fiber snare drum has its place in the line-up.

Carbon fiber is composed of carbon atoms bonded together to form a long chain. The fibers are extremely stiff, strong, and light, and are used in many processes to create excellent building materials. The thin shell offers a wide dynamic sensitivity with crisp, punchy tones that we loved and are fantastic for loud playing situations. As expected, this high-performance snare drum comes with the usual DW quality components such as Remo drumheads, 3.0mm steel True Hoops, and True-Pitch tension rods. The Collector's Series Carbon Fiber Snare Drum outperforms many other drums in the price range. 

If you've been searching for a versatile drum that is off the beaten path, check out the DW Collector's Series Carbon Fiber 6.5x14 snare drum.

Manufacturer's Description from DW Drums

Carbon fiber isn't a new drum-making material, but it is for DW. For years, players have asked about incorporating carbon fiber into the Custom Shop line-up. Many prototypes have been made and our testing has finally produced a shell that is good enough to make the cut. Offered in 5.5x14" and 6.5x14" sizes and available in any custom drum hardware color option, the Collector's Series Carbon has volume! It provides plenty of cut for loud playing situations, but it's also dynamically sensitive. Another choice from the Drummer's Choice®.
