Balanced Attack and Dark Tones With a 1 mm Copper Shell

The 1 mm polished copper shell of this DW snare drum gives your playing a dynamic presence. Copper provides focused attack with a balanced, even response across the drum head. Compared to steel and aluminum, the copper material brings out darker, moodier tonal qualities with more complexity in the overtones. The shell thickness further shapes the sound. At just 1 mm, vibrations resonate through the drum freely with sustain. Hit the drum with rimshots or cross stickings to really make the copper shell sing. Overall, the thin copper build highlights your rhythmic playing with clear articulation and a vintage vibe.

Outfitted with pro-level hardware, the Performance Series copper snare drum gives you enhanced functionality. The Performance Series lugs provide a classic look while aiding in the tuning process. With TruePitch tension rods, you can dial in precise pitches without frustrating slippage after tightening. The MAG throw-off allows quick snare release, while the 3P butt plate provides three tension settings at the flip of a switch. With both features, you can fine-tune the snare response from tight and crisp to loose and buzzy, perfect for different playing situations. Take full control over the drum's tension and snare sound.
