What We Think

The PDP Black Wax series of snare drums brings big sound at a small price. The 6.5" shell depth allows you to tune the drum pretty low and still get a quality sound. Perfect as a secondary or primary snare drum, the Black Wax snare drums offer attack, dynamics, and an incredibly sensitive snare response. The chrome lugs and DW MAG throw-off offer a nice contrast against the sleek black wax finish.  The Concept Black Wax series is a great sounding all Maple shell snare that’s a versatile workhorse and a tremendous value under $200.

Manufacturer's Description from PDP

The PDP 6.5" x 14" Concept Black Wax Maple Snare Drum is named because of the hand-applied wax sealer that protects the natural exterior and creates that dark, earthy matte finish. Maple is a favorite wood for snare drums - warm and naturally EQ'd with balanced lows, mids, and highs. This drum comes equipped with dual-turret lugs, a sturdy MAG throw-off, True-Pitch Tuning tension rods with more threads for finer tuning, and Remo heads.
