Every drummer should have the bold sound of a steel snare drum in their collection, and the DW Performance Series Steel Snare drum is a great choice. Made from thin 1mm rolled steel, this snare has the "ping" of brass without excessive overtones. It's a sound that will cut through any mix, and thanks to the True-Pitch tuning rods, you'll be able to pitch this drum for a variety of styles. For a snare that cracks like thunder without becoming overbearing, you'll be impressed with this DW Performance Series Steel Snare drum.

Engineered for superior sound

DW's Performance Series drums deliver amazing control over your tuning and tone. True-Pitch tuning rods use a tighter threaded tension rod so you can more precisely intonate your kit. True-Pitch tuning rods have 20% more threads than common tuning rods, so the DW Performance Series drums can be tuned more precisely than most drums on the market. Discerning drummers at Sweetwater know that you can count on DW drums for a lifetime of great tone, and this Performance Series Steel Snare is no different.

What more could you want?

this thing is an absolute beast. I put the new Evans uv1 head on it and added some wood hoops top and bottom. I can get all those metallic overtones I was looking for with rim shots, and the organic woody sound when cross sticking. Dead center sounds great too. It is absolutely beautiful and a great value. It has given me a new joy and excitement to play every day and I'm loving it. If you want a snare that cuts through everything and plays great, this would be it. Cheers
