With a thin 1mm rolled steel shell and sleek, chrome-plated finish, the DW Performance 8Óx14Ó Steel Snare Drum is an all-around jack-of-all-trades that looks fantastic behind any drum set. It has some of the ÔpingÕ of brass but with a more metallic quality with no unwanted overtones, just plenty of cut and crack. Performance Series steel snare drums possess incredible volume, especially in this 8Ó, and sensitivity thatÕs surprising in a snare drum of this size.

¥ The DW ÔMAGÕ throw-off snare strainer for precise snare tension.
¥ DWÕs ÔTrue PitchÕ tension rods with finer threading for greater tuning precision.

The DW ÔMAGªÕ Throw-Off - A purposefully simple design, the MAGª is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it wonÕt release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz.
