Description

The DW Collector’s Maple Snare is an absolute workhorse, and as DW put it, marks the standard from which all other DW snare drums are measured. Maple snares are hugely popular, and this DW Collector’s Maple Satin Oil snare is the pinnacle, demonstrating fully the popular warm tone, sharp attack and short sustain so recognisable in well-crafted maple snares. Crafted from North American Maple, this snare can adapt to create a wide spectrum of tones depending on the tuning, resulting in a drum that is much more than a one-trick pony. It is responsive and clear with light articulations and really projects when played with velocity, it is no wonder this snare drum marks a significant standard.

VLT™ (Vertical Low Timbre)

A fascinating feature to note is DW’s careful use of the grains in woods. While experimenting with materials and techniques, DW made the discovery that the direction of the grain itself heavily influences the tone of a drum. As such, 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 gives the snare a lower fundamental pitch (Bb on this particular snare), while still holding the impressive attack from shells with higher fundamental pitches.

DW Mag Snare Throw Off

The throw off itself is an outstanding feature of this snare. The throw off itself has an integrated magnet to help keep the throw off stable when up, but without wearing any mechanism when dropped. Furthermore, 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.
