DW Quality, An Amazing Price

DW created the Performance Series to allow a wider range of drummers to tap into legendary quality at an unheard-of price. It all starts with the slick new shell design, known as HVX. The HVX shells blend maple plies at different directions for great tone. Upgraded tension rods let you tune your drums more precisely than ever. The result: The Performance Series drums give you affordable drums that can easily span genres.

DW Performance Series 6.5" x 14" Snare at a Glance:
  • Punchy sound from HVX maple shells
  • Better tuning with DW Performance Series Drums
Punchy sound from HVX maple shells

The Performance Series drum's HVX shells blend horizontal, vertical, and diagonal plies of hand-selected North American hard rock maple (eight in total), and are voiced to give you solid low mids with a ton of punch and articulation. You'll find that these drums offer resonance and projection that is perfect for live performance.

Better tuning with DW Performance Series Drums

Have more control over your tuning than ever with DW's True-Pitch Tuning Rods. The DW Performance Series drums 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, the DW Performance Series drums can be tuned more exactly than most drums on the market. When you hear and feel how much drum you get for the money, you won't believe how affordable the DW Performance Series is!

DW Performance Series 6.5" x 14" Snare Features:
  • Maple shells for punch and detail
  • Suspension tom mounting and upgraded tension rods for better tuning
  • 6.5" x 14" Snare

DW Performance Lacquer Series Snare-6.5

Purchased in January 2015. Great projection and tone. Excellent quality and workmanship. Easy to tune. Beautiful finish! Excellent customer service provided by my Sales Engineer, Ed Nystrom!!! This drum has replaced my existing maple snare from another well known, high quality company. I also use D W 5000 Pedal, High-Hat and Hardware. My present kit is a TAMA Performer B/B, which is another high quality product that was purchased from Sweetwater Music. PURCHASE THIS SNARE DRUM. IT SIMPLY CAN'T BE BEAT FOR THE PRICE!

Big Bottom Sound

This snare is a canon. Deep warm tone and can crank up pretty high and tight.Well worth the money and great quality construction.
