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. 

Mahogany shells have come back in full swing allowing drummers to capture that warmth and sound of a lost era in drums. DW's foray into this shell offering ensures drummers that they will not only get a quality built drum, but they will also get the quality of sound as well. 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 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 Olive Ash Burl has understated flowing horizontal grain patterns which perfectly complements the chrome hardware making this drum a great fit for a variety of musical playing situations. Check out DW's Maple/Mahogany shell today.
