What We Think

The DW Exotic Series snare drums have been an affordable option for drummers that are looking for an exquisite looking and sounding drum in one nice package. 

This gorgeous beauty features a maple VLT shell so there are no reinforcing rings which delivers a broader tuning range. The usual DW components such as True Pitch 50 tension rods and True Hoops make tuning easy and fluid. In the medium tuning range, this maple snare drum has plenty of body and bite. At the low end of the range, this drum has the fat and sag of a 70's era drum sound but with a modern polish. In the high tuning range, the drum offers great crack and projection without sacrificing the body. 

The DW artisan's application of deep stain and the Curly Maple's visually striking appearance perfectly complement the black nickel hardware. With no trees ever having the same pattern, you can rest assured that this beauty is a one of a kind drum.

Manufacturer's Description from DW

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, alterations in grain direction can also greatly influence the sound. In a VLT™ shell, the outermost and innermost plies run vertically, rather than a traditionally horizontal configuration. The vertical grain places less tension on the shell, allowing it to vibrate more freely, resulting in the lowered fundamental pitch. 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® Pure drums.
