Here we have a preloved 14 x 5” version of DW’s Collector’s Series Maple Snare Drum which is yet another first-class example of the company's expertise. It generates an immensely full, rich sound which along with its broad tuning range and explosive attack, makes this a very versatile snare drum indeed. DW has taken full advantage of the natural timbre of North American Maple and crafted a shell that harnesses the perfect balance between tone and attack.

This is a drum that is built to last and provide the player with a super-reliable snare that can be counted on to perform night after night. This high level of consistent performance combined with brilliant levels of power, sensitivity and resonance makes this a snare drum that all others should aspire to match.

Its shell is crafted from a solid 10-ply sandwich of choice Maple reinforced by a 6-ply Maple hoop that adds even more stability to the drum, resulting in increased tuning consistency. The shell also features 60-degree bearing edges for optimal head to shell contact which enhances levels of resonance and attack. A lacquered shell interior adds a sheen of tonal brightness to an otherwise full-bodied sound, and the addition of DW’s MAG Snare throw-off and 3-point butt positioning allows you to dial in your snare wires with an extreme degree of accuracy.

Beautiful in sight and sound, the Collector’s Series Maple is a must-have snare drum that any gigging drummer will be delighted to have in their arsenal.
