DW Collector's Series 14 x 5.5 Inch Snare Drum - Purpleheart Clear Lacquer
Here's one of the most interesting offerings from the DW range. Created from Purpleheart (or in scientific terms Peltogyne), an exotic tonewood which leads to a stunning and very interesting snare drum in all aspects. It may be hard to believe but the tasteful purple finish of this snare is the natural colour of the wood.
Tonally rich and presenting the player with powerful midrange plus a whole heap of attack within the wicked crack - it's a seriously thrilling snare drum. Combined with DW's classic hardware including TrueHoops, Truepitch tension rods and the unmistakable turret lugs, this Purpleheart snare has the ability to be tuned incredibly highly to almost piccolo like ranges as well as more standard settings. More traditional tunings give the drum anything from deeper to lower mid pitch with strong, resonating overtones.
DW's patented MAG throw off and a 3-way snare switch completes the snare and add exceptional functionality and show off excellent craftsmenship you'd expect from the world class Drum Workshop Collector's Series.
