American white oak and steel build a focused, edgy snare sound.

Artisan series snare drums are designed to perform at the highest level by combining the finest materials and craftsmanship Dixon has to offer. Each shell configuration and feature reflects Dixon's commitment to quality and the advancement of the art of drumming manifested in their Equator snare drum.

Equator's shell construction begins with a 4-ply American White Oak shell followed by a rolled steel ring inserted between reinforcement rings for a focused but edgy sound with fast response. Wenge wood hoops add a second dimension to the sound and look of Equator with rich hardwood rim shots and an elegant look.

Like a muscle car with a beast of an engine hiding under the hood, Equator appears to be like any other classy snare drum from the outside, but it's what lies beneath Equator's Cool Grey lacquer and tube lug exterior that turns heads.

Sharp snare sound upgrades your kit. Order today.
