  • Simply Awesome!!

    As reviewed by Enoc Munoz on 1/15/2011

    I have owned a 5.5x14 DW Performance Series natural finish snare for about 1 month now, and it is simply THE best snare drum I have ever owned... It has nice sustain, amazing tone, and when tuned tightly, it has a very nice pop/attack that fits Gospel and Jazz very, very well. Granted, you can tune this snare drum to do anything you want to fit Rock, Metal, Blues, R&B, and many other styles. For the money and the quality, you really can't ask for anything more. Want to hear how it sounds? Go to youtube, and select the video that reads "DW Performance Series Snare" by EnocMunoz... You'll see me giving it the first try, and it sounds SICK! :D

  • Great option if you're looking for a wood snare!

    As reviewed by Ryan Monaghan on 3/4/2013

    I've been playing on my 5.5x14 DW Performance snare for a few weeks now, and I really like it. I had been playing on a 6X14 Pork Pie Little Squealer steel snare, and I decided that I wanted to add a wood snare to my arsenal, so I chose this one. I love the mag throw off, and the snare sounds really controlled. It has an even warm tone and pronounced attack. I'm still using the stock head, but it sounded so good out of the box, I just decided to save my money and keep the stock head on for now. I bought the natural lacquer finish, and it's really beautiful. It has excellent build quality and it looks great! If you're looking to add another snare to your collection, or if you're wanting a new versatile main snare, I definitely recommend this one.

  • Worth the money amazing sound quality!

    As reviewed by Alex Lundgren on 12/27/2013

    I recently purchased this drum and, i am not disappointed. The sound quality is amazing, also it has a really nice look to it (candy apple). The only problem i had with this drum is that due to the fact that DW are made to the order, it was hard to track down one of these drums. Make sure to call the company before you order one to make sure they have one in stock, as when i called they only had select models available.
