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. In the medium tuning range, this snare has plenty of body and bite. At the low end of the range this drum has the fat and sag of a '70s era drum sound but with a modern polish. In the high tuning range, the drum offers great crack and projection without sacrificing body. The Okoume Feather veneer has a visually striking appearance and perfectly complements the chrome hardware. It has the standard shell configuration with some gorgeous matching veneer reinforcing rings to round out the package.

Manufacturer's Description from DW

The DW Collector's Series Snare Drum sports DW's Maple Specialized Shell Configuration (SSC). Maple is a traditional shell material that gives you low-end punch, warmth, and attack. For years, drum makers have preferred maple for its impact and resonant tonal qualities. Starting with the best wood, DW then applies its unique SSC technology to create some of the best-sounding drums ever made. DW found that by alternate orientation of the grain patterns of different plies (vertical, horizontal, and even diagonal), drums could be optimized for their particular specialty - for instance, punch and impact in a snare drum.
