My Go To Snare

I love aluminum snares, I always have. This snare can cover so many different ranges as far as tunability and genres. So warm and loud sounding. Sounds great in my studio. The only 2 snares I need is this and a Black nickel over brass. If I could have only one snare it would be this one. Buy it... you won't regret it!

Incredible, Awesome Product!

I purchased this Snare for my son for his High School Graduation gift. This was the last DW drum to complete his Collectors Series Kit. Needless to say, he was on "Cloud 9" when he received, and is very proud to own this new drum. Incredible, Awesome tone!!! Highly recommend this product!!!

5/5

For years I mainly used wood snares of various types (mostly maple but have had an ash snare and Ludwig cherry/gum wood snare) but was looking for something different when I stumbled upon the aluminum snare. And that's when I said it's the sound I felt best represents my sound. I tried everything the store had from heavy brass over nickel, steel, copper, birch wood and vented OCDP custom snare. While all have their unique characteristics I kept going back to the aluminum. These snares blend so well into the mix and little did I know when I discovered them that some of my favorite drummers used aluminum from Jimmy Chamberlin of the Smashing Pumpkins to Chad Smith from RHCP's and Dave Grohl (listen to Them Crooked Vultures album) and then it made much more sense why I enjoyed the sound so much. These snares naturally play well through all different types of tuning. They sound great tuned high and give you that dry sound with little to no dampening needed. This drum is great and plays great out of the box. Tuned high or low you get just a real workhorse. Oh and one more thing these drums whether it be this DW or the Pearl Sensitone I previously had tune up with such ease.All I can say is: Get this snare now!!

Killer snare! Dw don't disappoint

Bought this snare because i mean it's DW.. They're obviously gonna make an awesome product, Well i was blown away. I've heard this snare on various recordings such as angels and airwaves albums with Atom Willard using it and was impress from the get go, Well i've used it a couple gigs and a lot at church and every time i do someone compliments the deep tones that it puts out, It's super punchy and gives an awesome "Gun shot" snare sound. I've recently used it on our churches album and it trumps all the other snare i have such as SJC custom and chrome over brass. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a snare with an amazing punch little to none over tones and low tuning vintage sound.
