Before you even play this DW snare you’re drawn in my it’s stunningly sophisticated style.

Featuring a Chrome Shadow finish which is part of the DW Ultra Durable FinishPly finishes range, this snare offers a shimmering flash of navy-blue colour.

The mirror effect of the chrome shadow finish helps the snare to pop with an eye-catching aesthetic that is complemented perfectly by the all chrome shell hardware.

The snare is fitted with double ended “propeller” style lugs and is framed with thick 3mm chrome triple flanged hoops to provide an instantly distinctive look.

The shell is finished off perfectly by the two black Performance Series badges.

Remo Drumheads

The Drum Workshop Performance snare comes fitted with DW Remo USA drumheads as standard to ensure reliable durability and superior sound.

The batter side has a coated reverse dot head which is adorned with tuning sequence numbering to help easy and successful tuning.

The underside is fitted with a clear Remo snare side resonant head.

True-Pitch Tension Rods

Holding the drumheads and hoops in place, the 14” DW snare is fitted with patented true-pitch tension rods to provide precise tuning of the snare.

The true-pitch tuning rods have 20% more thread than standard tuning rods to accommodate more exact and precise tuning to ensure you achieve the specific sound you require.

While most tension rods have 1 thread every 1.05mm, the true-pitch rods have one thread positioned every 0.8mm which works to provide you with more intricate tuning adjustability.
So, whether you need low, fat thud or want high, cranked cut, the true-pitch tension rods make finding your sound easier and help it to stay in place longer.

Mag Throw

Further working to ensure you achieve the exact sound you want with ease, the DW Performance snare is fitted with the DW Mag Snare Throw Off System.

Featuring a purposefully simple design, the Mag throw off is a workhorse drop throw with a horizontal tension adjustment to offer fast and intricate snare setting.

The throw off has a small magnet integrated into the body of the throw which works to hold the handle in place to ensure the strainer doesn’t loosen or release with the vibrations of your playing.

Then when you do want to release the snare wires, with a slight tug the Mag instantly throws the strainer completely off the resonant head to avoid snare buzz and provide a quick and clean snare release.

Warm Maple Tone

The shell of this Drum Workshop snare is constructed from 10 plies of hand selected North American rock maple.

Known for it’s even amounts of high and mid frequencies, maple delivers a drum sound filled with rich, low end warmth.

The shell is finished with DW 45 degree back cut bearing edges to provide a modern, attacking snare sound.

Delivering versatile, all-purpose tone, this DW maple snare is capable of providing the lively, bright character needed to cut through on stage and the full warm depth of tone desirable for the studio.

Proprietary Process

What sets this snare apart from other maple snares is the way in which it is made.

Utilising a process developed by executive vice president John Wood and the DW Custom Shell Shop, this snare drum is crafted using DW’s proprietary HVX process.

The HVX process works by using grain orientation technology (alternating the grain direction of each ply) to produce a super strong shell with optimum shell integrity.

Once the plies are fitted into the mould they are baked under pressure in an oven before being immediately moved to a pressurized cooler to allow the glue to crystallize quickly.

The end result is a harden snare shell that is perfectly cylindrical to deliver superb tuning range and optimum resonance.


Offering diverse modern drummers versatile tone, functional adjustability and stand out style, this DW Performance Snare is visually beautiful and audibly rich.

The HVX all maple shell offers lusciously warm lows while the 45-degree edges provide a snare with attacking cut to ensure you’re covered from the studio to the stage.

The simple but effective Mag throw off allows smooth and reliable adjustability and the true-pitch tension rods deliver precise tuning to accommodate exacting tone selection.

The mirror effect Chrome Shadow finish offers a shimmering flash of blue colour to deliver a look that’s as strong as the snare sound.
