DW's Vintage Brass Snare

The Vintage Steel is available as Vintage Copper or Vintage Brass. The snazzy shot above is of the latter. To get your hands on one you’ll have to shell (excuse the pun) out between £509.72 and £543.75 depending on your chosen model and finish.

DW Top Edge
Featuring X-Shell 10-ply maple

DW’s Top Edge snare retails from £815.97 and comes loaded with a heavy-gauge alloy Edge ring along the top of the drum and an X-Shell 10-ply maple below. As you can see from this picture, it looks pretty special.

DW's MAG throw-off
Change positions in the blink of an eye

Whichever snare you plump for will come with DW’s MAG throw-off system, which utilises the wonders of technology (namely a magnetic mechanism) to help you quickly change between its three positions. Nice.
