  • Maple Specialized Shell Configuration (SSC)
  • DW quality
DW Collectors Series

The non plus ultra in drum customization, DW's Collectors Series boasts the company's SSC. The result of more than a decade of DW Custom Shop shell technology, SSC incorporates the company's X, VLT, and VLX shell technologies into drums that sound more than the sum of their parts. Naturally, you can special order a custom DW kit anyway you want it, but DW has simplified the process by optimizing particular shell types for each drum size. Juiced with SSC, the DW Collectors Series 6" x 14" Snare Drum lets you power your backbeat with stunning impact.

Maple Specialized Shell Configuration (SSC)

The DW Collectors Series 6" x 14" Snare Drum sports DW's Maple SSC. Maple is a traditional shell material that gives you low-end punch, warmth, and attack. For years, drum makers have preferred maple for its impact and resonant tonal qualities. Starting with the best wood, DW then applies its unique SSC technology to create some of the best-sounding drums ever made. DW found that by alternate orientation of the grain patterns of different plies (vertical, horizontal, and even diagonal) drums could be optimized for their particular specialty, for instance low end response in a kick drum or floor tom.

DW quality

For over 30 years, DW Drums has made some of the most revered drums, pedals, stands, and other drum hardware out there. It all began with an innovative adjustable trap-case seat. Not only was this the first of DW's many breakthrough hardware designs, but it showed the world that they really understand what drumming is all about. On top of that, DW Drums' craftsmanship has more than set the bar for drum makers everywhere. Discover this commitment to quality for yourself in every drum and piece of DW hardware you buy.

DW has yet to disappoint..I like my snare to have a nice high crack with substance..Unlike most piccolo snares, which has a nice crack, but lacks body DW delivers. This snare also has a nice mid tone to it as well.I'm playing with the stock head and it's still cranking.It's a little pricey, but worth it.Not to mention it has a pretty finish.lm definitely pleased...

Phonemail Snare Drum

This is the bench mark of DW collectors series snare drums. Well made and very verstal in just about any genre of music. Nice punch when tuning lower and a lot of snap when tuning to a higher. The DW 6x14 all maple shell will accommodate the most demanding of high volume music, while keeping warm grace notes when playing at a lower volume. Also a very adjustable Snare Drum, with True Pitch Rims, Lug Screws and the DW Mag throw which allows the snare wires to be very sensitive. My over all take, you can not go wrong with any DW product. Keep in mind when shopping on line or in person at Sweetwater, I highly recommend Chelsea, David Mikautadze assistant, She is a fantastic patient Client Advisor who really knows a lot about varies products. As always, Thank You Sweetwater for all your help and service over the years.
