New DW Snares and Throw-Off System
DW announced new models to its Collector’s Series line, including models such as the hybrid metal alloy and wood Edge, the Super Solid with solid shell compression wood technology and the vent-adjustable Acoustic EQ.
Newly added to the list are Top Edge, Super Solid Edge, Solid-Stave and Vintage Steel models.
The Top Edge (retail pricing from $1199.00-$1699.00) features an alloy Edge ring at the top and X-Shell 10-ply maple below. Edge rings are available in chrome and gold only and the wood section can be customized in any available Custom Shop finish.
The Super Solid Edge (retail $1499.00-$1699.00) is a 3-piece maple/walnut solid wood shell that’s available in a 3/8”, ½” or ¾” thickness.
Also added to the DW solid shell selection is the Solid-Stave (retail $999.00). Offered in Oak with a Natural Lacquer finish, Ash in an Ebony Stain Lacquer and Para wood with a Walnut Stain Lacquer finish, each can be customized in any of five drum hardware plating choices.
The Vintage Steel (retail $749.00-$799.00) drums feature thick rolled 5 mm steel shells with a unique ribbed exterior. Available in Vintage Copper and Vintage Brass, each can be customized in any Custom Shop drum hardware color.
A complete size selection chart for these drums and all models can be found at www.dwdrums.com/snares/features.
A new upgrade to these drums and all other Custom Shop snare drums is the new MAG Throw-Off System. The system includes the MAG drop throw-off and 3P 3-position butt plate. The throw-off features a magnetic drop-style mechanism with horizontal strainer adjustment and the 3P butt plate allows drummers to select one of three wire tensions with the flick of a lever. The new MAG System is available in all five Custom Shop drum hardware offerings. The side-to-side Delta ball-bearing throw-off is still available upon request.
