In Stock!

DW Quality, Amazing Price!

Delivering unbelievable resonance and projection thanks to DW's proprietary HVX shell, the DW Performance Series snare drum provides you with great sound at a real-world price. Built from a blend of ten plies of hand-selected North American hard rock maple, this snare drum doles out solid, snappy punch every time you step onstage. On top of that, you get a scaled-down version of DW's trademark turret lugs, as well as onboard True-Pitch tuning and 45-degree back-cut bearing edges. The DW Performance Series snare drum is an amazing value.

DW Performance Series at a Glance:
  • Punchy tone from an HVX maple shell
  • Engineered for superior sound
Punchy tone from an HVX maple shell

The Performance Series HVX shell blends horizontal, vertical, and diagonal plies of hand-selected North American hard rock maple (ten in total) and is voiced to give you solid low mids with a lot of punch and articulation. You'll find that this snare drum offers resonance and projection that's perfect for live performance. The maple shell gives your sound definition and great response. You won't have to fight with mushy tones that get lost in the mix either, thanks to maple's natural brightness and clarity. Add a powerful punch and attack to your kit with the DW Performance Series snare drum.

Engineered for superior sound

Gain more control over your tuning and your tone with DW's Performance Series. True-Pitch tuning rods have 20% more threads than common tuning rods, so the DW Performance Series snare can be tuned more precisely than most snares on the market. The 45-degree back-cut bearing edge minimizes contact with the drumhead, which allows the head and the shell to resonate more freely for incredible sound. At Sweetwater we understand the importance of value, and we're confident that you'll be impressed at how much drum you get for the money with the DW Performance Series snare drum!
