Description

The DW Collectors Series Black Nickel over Brass Snare Drum is a versatile workhorse snare drum.

Utilizing a thin industry-standard 1mm brass shell, and plated with sleek black nickel. Suitable for a variety of musical applications, it offers that sought-after "classic studio brass snare sound" for Rock, Jazz and beyond, offering brightness and cut with a decidedly metallic tonal characteristic, and it can “crack” like you won’t believe! Equiped with DW's MAG Throw-off, 3P 3-position Snare Butt, and True Hoops.

Drum Workshop MAG™ Throw-Off:
This snare drum features the DW MAG™ throw-off. A purposefully simple design, the MAG™ is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz.

3P 3-position Snare Butt
The innovative new 3P, three-position butt plate allows you to easily and accurately toggle between 3 different levels of strainer tension. The combination of the MAG™ throw-off and the 3P Butt Plate is the most reliable and adjustable strainer system DW has ever built.

True Hoop Drum Hoops:
DW spent nearly a year-and-a-half designing and perfecting the most consistent counter hoop they have ever produced. True Hoop is a major advancement in the relationship between bearing edge, drum head and counter hoop. As drummers, we know how critical that relationship is to tuning and tone. The True Hoop is just that, round and flat, and without the typical variations you often see around stamped holes. It even has an attractive new touch: a fully-rounded outer edge. The 2.3 mm TrueHoops are factory installed on all Collectors snare drums.

  • Thin industry-standard 1mm brass shell
  • Plated with sleek black nickel
  • Offers that sought-after "classic studio brass snare sound"
  • Brightness and cut with a decidedly metallic tonal characteristic
  • Suitable for a variety of musical applications

Reviews

Brilliant snare, and a total bargain!

5

DW snares are so beautifully made, with the 3-tiered butt-plate and signature lugs, and this black nickel over brass is a wonderful darker sounding drum that's perfect for Bonham-style half time belters. And the price is amazing - the Ludwig Black Beauty that this is often compared to is in a higher price bracket (also a beautiful drum) but I believe the DW to have the edge on it. Don't hesitate - just buy!
