Proprietary Process

DW have utilised a proprietary HVX process in the construction of this DW Performance snare to ensure versatile sound and natural resonance.

This proprietary process has been devised by the team at the California DW Custom Shell Shop and executive vice president John Wood and combines grain orientation technology with a specific pattern of plies.

This grain orientation process involves alternating the direction of the grain of each ply as it’s put into the mould to achieve a shell with super strength and shape integrity.

The mould is then baked under pressure before being immediately moved from the oven to a pressurized cooler to allow the glue to instantly crystallizes forming a harden, perfectly cylindrical snare shell.

Maple Warmth

Using the innovative HVX process, the shell of this DW Performance snare is constructed from 10 plies of maple to deliver all-purpose sound.

Characterised by it’s even amounts of highs and mids, maple offers a tone filled with rich warm lows.

Whether you need the full depth of tone for studio recording or want cutting projection to pierce through the mix on stage, this 14” x 6.5” snare is capable of delivering the tone you need.

The blend of HVX technology, hand selected North American hard rock maple and the cool tempered process works to produce a snare drum with low punchy tones, ample resonance and piercing projection.

Modern Edges

The shell of this Drum Workshop snare is finished with 45 degree back cut bearing edges to provide modern, attacking tone.

The 45-degree edges add a lively, bright character to the snare to ensure versatile sound filled with robust attack and increased sustain.

DW Mag Throw

Offering smooth, easy and efficient adjustability, this DW Performance Gold Sparkle snare is fitted with the DW Mag Snare Throw Off System.

Finished in chrome and featuring a purposefully simple design, the Mag throw off is a workhorse drop throw with a horizontal tension adjustment to offer quick and intricate setting changes.

The throw off takes it name from the clever magnet that is integrated into the body of the throw and works to keep the handle securely in the upright position to ensure it won’t release without a slight tug.

This simple but effective feature makes sure the throw off doesn’t come loose as you play to ensure you maintain a consistent snare response throughout your playing session.

When you do release the handle it instantly throws the strainer completely off the resonant head to avoid any strainer buzz and provide a quick and clear snare release.


This Gold Sparkle snare is fitted with DW’s patented true-pitch tension rods to ensure strong hold and precise tuning.

The true-pitch tuning rods feature a 20% increase in the number of threads compared to standard tension rods in order to achieve more exact and longer lasting tuning.

Most tension rods have 1 thread positioned every 1.05mm but the true-pitch rods have 1 thread every 0.8mm.

The result of this impressive attention to detail is that the snare drum accommodates more intricate tuning adjustments to ensure you achieve the exact sound you need from low, fat thud to high, cranked cut.

Reliable Remo

This stunning DW Gold Sparkle Performance Snare is fitted with DW Remo USA drumheads as standard to deliver robust durability and superior sound.

The batter side features a coated reverse dot head which has tuning sequence numbering to aid easy and successful tuning, and the underside is fitted with a clear Remo snare side resonant head.

Gold Sparkle

Part of the Ultra Durable FinishPly finishes range, this Gold Sparkle finish offers striking style.

Delivering a pop of bright gold colour, the finish has a glittery aesthetic to add some shimmering style to your kit.

The bright golden tone of the shell is accentuated perfectly by the all chrome hardware to ensure this DW snare has an eye-catching look.

Although this snare is the ideal addition to the kit of the same finish, it would also be equally at home in a kit of any style.

The DW Performance snare is fitted with double ended “propeller” style lugs and is framed with 3mm chrome standard triple flanged hoops to deliver a distinctive aesthetic.

Finishing off the look perfectly the snare is fitted with two black Performance Series badges.


Utilising a proprietary construction process and hand selected maple, this DW Performance Snare offers superb versatile tone.
