    Comments about DW Design Series Black Nickel over Brass Snare Drum:

    Looks nice, feels nice and sounds amazing. Both low and high tuning suit this snare very well. I put no more than 3 inches of gaffer's tape to dampen some harmonics, but other than that, the volume can get huge. I also own a Design 14x5.5" maple snare and they complement each other vey well. In general, I think DW did an amazing job with the Design series.

      Comments about DW Design Series Black Nickel over Brass Snare Drum:

      Excellent sound and feel. Great quality despite the price. I traded in both my DW Performance snares and bought both the 14x6.5 Design nickel over brass, and also Design maple wood. To me, the Design Series snares are far superior to the Performance series snare.
