What We Think

This DW black satin over brass snare drum is one of the essential sounds any drummer should have. The thin brass shell is super easy to tune and a joy to play while speaking well in multiple playing situations. 

The 8x14 rolled brass shell makes big waves both in terms of sound and aesthetic. The gold plated hardware makes a visual statement while the deeper shell depth takes care of the rest. Tuned high, this drum offers great articulation, sensitivity, and full-bodied cut. The lower tunings offer a fat and wet sound we loved without the loss of responsiveness. The impressive 20 lug configuration combined with the True Pitch 50 tension rods will keep an even stretch on the heads regardless of where you decide to tune this drum. 

If you find yourself needing a full body brass snare drum, the 8x14 DW Black Satin over Brass has you covered.
