Description

The DW Collector’s Maple Snare is an out-and-out mainstay, and as DW put it, marks the standard from which all other DW snare drums are measured. Made of the hugely popular snare wood Maple, this DW Collector’s Maple snare is the zenith of Maple snares, demonstrating abundantly the sought-after rich tone, aggressive attack and short sustain, familiar in well-crafted Maple snare drums. Crafted from North American Maple, this snare can adapt freely to produce an extensive gamut of tones, dependent on the tuning, resulting in a snare that is so much more than a one-very-good-trick pony. It is responsive and vibrant with softer rudimentary playing, and really sings when played with energy, it is no wonder this snare drum is one of the most popular out there.

VLT™ (Vertical Low Timbre)

An important quality to note is DW’s meticulous use of the grains in woods. While trialling with materials and techniques, DW made the discovery that the direction of the grain itself greatly impacts the quality of a drum. Therefore, this DW Collector’s Maple Snare has outermost and innermost plies with vertical grains, as this allows the shell to resonate more freely due to less tension being placed on the shell. This grants the snare a lower fundamental pitch (Bb on this particular snare), while still holding the remarkable attack from shells with higher fundamental pitches.

DW Mag Snare Throw Off

The throw off itself is an impressive feature of this snare. The throw off has an integrated magnet to help keep the throw off secure when up, but without exhausting any mechanism when dropped. Even the butt plate screams quality. Taking advantage of a unique 3 place position design, you are able to quickly change the tension of the snare wire with just a flick of the plate, reaching a variety of sounds instantly. Absolute quality, total versatility.
