OVERVIEW

DW's Performance Series Snare offers a brand new shell technology devised by John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California. Combining the latest grain orientation technology and hand-selected North American Hard Rock Maple, Performance Series' proprietary HVX shells deliver a low, punchy fundamental, with ample resonance and projection that's perfectly suited for live applications.

This snare features a 10-ply shell with HVX construction. The drum hardware offers a "turret lug" for a unique "propeller" look, beefy 3mm, triple-flanged counter hoops, True-Pitch tuning rods and a smooth-action DW MAG throw-off. Made in the USA.

A snare drum that provides an all-maple expansion or upgrade to an existing drum setup.

        This snare drum is a great add on or primary performance piece to any drum set. I played with other snare drums over the years and nothing has compared to THiS! Great investment with no regrets.

        It's a DW...REALLY!

            Comments about DW Performance Series Snare:

            First things first: There are contradicting photos of DW Performance series snare drums on the web. The one I received has the single turret "bow-tie" lugs. I much prefer this look to the double circle "PDP" style. Second point is that this IS made in USA. Apparently the first run of these drums were made in Ensenada Mexico (PDP factory). DW wisely moved production back to the states.

            I recently purchased a 6-piece Performance series kit and needed a snare to match...

            The quality is true DW. I also own a 1999 Collector's series kit, and the similarities are evident. Gone are the re-rings and the timbre matching, but most other points are covered.

            Like Collector's drums, the inside of the snare is finished in glossy clearcoat unlike the toms/kicks.

            As for sound, it's full and warm. Nice low-end. Doesn't cut like a metal snare, but sounds very good nonetheless. The 6.5" depth lends itself to rock music as it does choke if tuned too tightly. Flawless quality. I LOVE this drum!
