DW Collectors Series Maple 6.5x14 Snare Drum, 6.5x14 - Exotic Redwood Stump 

By pairing an 11-ply proprietary shell of select North American hard rock maple with a handsome veneer of hand-picked redwood stump curl — a wood whose lacquered grain appears to "breathe" as you move around it — this DW Collector's Series Exotic snare drum succeeds in delivering power, tone, sensitivity, and visuals unmatched by others in its class. Its roughly quarter-inch VLT shell is created without the use of re-rings to command a wider tuning range and occupy even more sonic space. 60° bearing edges with thin ply-and-a-half roundover outers generate a maximum tone and minimal overring from batter and snare-side heads. And Collector's Series hardware that extends to the 3.0mm True-Hoops and MAG/3P throw-off right down to the iconic DW lugs makes the DW Collector's Series Exotic Redwood Stump snare a drum that's suited for the choosiest players and collections.

11-ply Maple VLT Shell

DW's VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) grain orientation gives the DW Collector's Series Exotic snare a deep, satisfying punch to match its tremendous resonant potential. Inner and outer plies are rotated vertically, 90° degrees against the 9-ply horizontal-grained core, resulting in less tension on the shell — thus, greater vibrations and a lower pitch overall. 60°-inner bearing edges with thin roundover outers gently control overring while maximizing head response.
