The Best there is

By David

Comments about DW Performance Series Snare Drum:

I have the 14 x 6.5 candy apple lacquer, and I'm truly blown away! This is by far the best snare I have ever owned. I was shopping in a guitar center and grabbed this off the shelf to try it out. I was instantly in love. It looks like a million bucks, and SOUNDS like a million bucks. Everything they say about DWs is true. It's so easy to tune. It gives me the exact sound I need. I didn't even bother changing the stock head because it sounded like a dream already. Honestly, I didn't even think that I was going there to get a DW snare, I wasn't sure I could afford it, but after hearing that sound, I knew it was worth it. It also has a great crack when you hit it correctly. It's a great sound for jazz, R&B, Gospel, and much more. You won't regret it.

Worth the money amazing sound quality!

By Alex Lundgren

from New York

Comments about DW Performance Series Snare Drum:

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.

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

By Ryan Monaghan

from Kansas

Comments about DW Performance Series Snare Drum:

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.

Great for the price

By michael poche

from Slidell, La.

Comments about DW Performance Series Snare Drum:

Purchased the snare about One month ago and am pleased to all ends with it. The drum has great sound with or without the snare on. The snare is quick and crisp, the two tone batter head is great for accenting notes, especially when incorporating a rim shot. The snare lever is smooth and easy to operate. Good purchase.

Best Snare Ive ever played!

By Cesar Lopez

from Beaverton, OR

Comments about DW Performance Series Snare Drum:

I used to play with a Sound Percussion Snare for 5 years. I had to put moongels on, to dampen the sound. It was also loud and annoying. When I bought the Dw Performance snare, I thought this was the best snare I've ever played with! It was easy to control the sound, it had a good response, and it didn't need moongel anymore. It was a blessing! Although the hoop is a little higher than usual. It also has a nice throw off! I chose the Stain Laquer 6.5x14.

Factory quality control issues, poor construction

By scott Hamill

from Puyallup, WA

Comments about DW Performance Series Snare Drum:

I returned this drum after 2 weeks, and I really wanted to like it...The bearing edge and snare bed was poorly crafted, and the shell had many inconsistencies, making it impossible to tune the reso side. My stock pacific FS birch 5" snare sounded better (according to several people blinded to which drum I was playing) Returned this drum to GC in Tacoma and Garrett promptly took it back, also stunned by it's lack of quality. I got a Pearl Masters 14x6.5, and I'm loving it!!

best snare I've ever owned

By Matt

from Little Silver, NJ

Comments about DW Performance Series Snare Drum:

I traded an OCDP custom snare in to a local GC the other day and decided to put it towards the 6.5x14" model of the DW Performance Snare and I honestly feel like that was one of the best decisions I've made in a long time. As soon as I took it home and started playing on it I was blown away. Super versatile as far as how you can get a lot of different tones out of it depending on what heads you use & your tuning. I have a Remo Black X on mine right now and it's tuned low for a deeper attack and the sound is incredible. I've had several snares throughout my 13+ years of drumming (including two DW snares: 1 nickel and 1 maple)and this drum bests all of them no question. Not to mention it was less than half of what I paid for my other two snares from DW. Even though the Performance Series line is meant to be more affordable, from what I can tell DW has not cut any corners with the quality. If you're in need for a new snare, look no further. Best bang for your buck and then some.

Simply Awesome!!

By Enoc Munoz

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about DW Performance Series Snare Drum:

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
