13" x 6.5" Black Walnut / Ash Snare -SN1976
The ultimate in hand-crafted snare drum shells. This is made from a staggering 224 individually cut segments of ash and black walnut. Both woods make excellent sounding snare shells and the contrasting colours give a classic basket weave patterned shell.
The shell is finished with traditional french polishing and top spec S-hoops, tube lugs and DW Mag throwoff and the ingenious DW 3P snare butt.
It is any drum makers joy producing this, but they are very much a limited edition design due to what is involved in their manufacture.
