What We Think

Drummers seeking powerful cut and rich bronze tone should look no further than this heavyweight from DW. Weighing in at 20 pounds, this drum sports a rolled bronze shell which offers plenty of full-bodied tone with a fast attack. Even when cranked to higher tensions, this drum still exhibits plenty of body and punch. A sensitive touch brings out the complexities of the bronze, while powerful rimshots will crack and cut through any wall of amps. This snare drum is an absolute monster!
