With a thin 1mm rolled steel shell and sleek, chrome-plated finish, the DW Performance 8" x 14" Steel Snare Drum is an all-around jack-of-all-trades that looks fantastic behind any drum set. It has some of the 'ping' 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 8", and sensitivity that's surprising in a snare drum of this size.

¥ The DW 'MAG' throw-off snare strainer for precise snare tension.
¥ DW's 'True Pitch' tension rods with finer threading for greater tuning precision.
¥ Heavy-gauge steel triple-flange drum hoops.
¥ DW's unique drum heads manufactured by Remo USA.

More about "MAG"!
The DW "MAG" Throw-Off - A purposefully simple design, the "MAG" 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 won't release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz.
