DW Collector's Series All-Maple Snare Drum 6x14"
DW is one of the most famous makers of high-end drums. DW's Collector's series drums are used by top professionals because of their superior quality and amazing sound. Available in several different shell types, I prefer the Collector's Series All-Maple Snare Drum as it’s one of the best sounding wood snare on the market. The 10-ply shell is made from North American maple and has a 6-ply reinforcement hoop to retain a pure tone. The drum has a 60 degree bearing edge which helps to produce its superior sound. This snare is capable of generating a strong attack while maintaining a lot of warmth.
The interior of this drum is actually lacquered to give it a unique sound while the hoops and hardware are some of the finest around, being made to be much more durable than other high-end snare drums. I actually find the strainer is a bit more solid than some of its competitors. This drum can be customized to your personal taste with plenty of options for shell and hardware finish. These drums are available in countless different sizes and quite frankly they all sound great; personally I prefer the 6x14 inch size because it has a full, versatile sound.
