Performance Series 14x5.5" Snare Drum Pewter Sparkle description:

The DW 14"x5.5" Performance Snare Drum Pewter Sparkle is a 14" x 5.5" snare drum, made with a 10-ply American hard rock maple shell, a HVX construction, a mag throw off system, triple flanged hoops, and a pewter sparkle finish. Performance Series offers a brand new shell technology devised by John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California. Combining the latest grain orientation technology and hand-selected North American Hard Rock Maple, Performance Series' proprietary HVX shells deliver a low, punchy fundamental, with ample resonance and projection that's perfectly suited for live applications. Performance Series snare drums feature 10-ply HVX construction.

Performance Series drums are available exclusively in Chrome. This includes lugs, hoops, STM, and tom legs. The Performance Series "turret lug" is a scaled-down version of the famous round DW lug, while the snare drums get a unique "propeller" look all their own. Performance Series are available exclusively with Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops to give your drums a great versatile sound. Steel Triple Flange Hoops come in graduated weights, 3mm for snares.

To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 that’s standard on most other drums. To compare, there is 1 thread every 0.8mm on DW's True-Pitch rods (about 20% more threads), versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process.

The main features of the DW 14"x5.5" Performance Snare Drum Pewter Sparkle include:

  • Size: 14" x 5.5"
  • 10-ply American hard rock maple shell
  • HVX construction
  • Mag throw off system
  • Triple flanged hoops in chrome
  • True-pitch rod system
