What We Think

When it comes to exotic veneers, some of the best specimens can be found on DW snare drums, and this Collectors Maple Snare, with its Redwood Stump veneer, is a strikingly beautiful example of fine American drum building. 

DW’s vertical low-timbre shell design features outer and inner plies of wood with vertically-oriented grain. This places less tension on the drum shell, thereby accentuating the natural low-end of the shell. The end result is a lower fundamental pitch and rich, deep resonance with plenty of clarity and articulation. This drum responds well across a wide range of tunings; it can be tuned low without losing articulation, or high without choking out or lacking body. 

The beautifully figured Redwood Stump veneer that adorns this drum provides a wonderful visual complement to the rich sounds this drum is capable of producing. Drummers seeking a snare that is both unique and versatile would do well to consider adding this beauty to their collection.

Manufacturer's Description from DW Drums

In experimenting with different exotic woods as alternate shell making materials, DW's Custom Shell Shop discovered that in addition to the different tonal qualities inherent in every unique type of wood, slight alterations in the shell's construction can also greatly influence sound. Some of the woods sampled possessed a vertical grain pattern that when tested, dramatically lowered the pitch of the shell. Thus, VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) was born. For those players who prefer a lower overall tone while still maintaining maximum resonance and attack, VLT can be ordered as an option on all Collector's Series Maple Drums.
