Pick up a real-deal DW snare drum at an amazing value in the DW Performance Series!

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

The DW Performance Series HVX snare shell blends horizontal, vertical, and diagonal plies of hand-selected North American hard rock maple (eight in total), voiced to give you a solid low-mid punch with plenty of crack and articulation. You won't have to fight with mushy tones that get lost in the mix either, thanks to maple's natural brightness and clarity. Power your backbeats with the DW Performance Series snare.

Engineered for superior sound

Gain more control over your tuning and tone with DW's Performance Series snare. 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 others on the market. 45-degree back-cut bearing edges minimize drumhead contact, which allows both 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 by how much drum you get for the money with the DW Performance Series snare!

Great Snare

This drum is a beast for the money. The 3mm hoops provide easy tuning and the interior finish reflects and projects the sound well. No need to upgrade heads or snare wires, both are top notch. The snare comes with a coated CS batter head. I replaced it with a coated Ambassador then switched back, DW knew what head sounded best. The drum tuned up quickly and even at higher tensions the snare retained decent low end. Very pleased with the sensitivity and great definition between full strokes and ghost notes. ..... The highlight is the Mag Throw Off. I've never used a smoother throw off. I'll likely buy the 14X5.5 model and set it up for higher tunings.
