Introducing the DW 14" True Cast Bronze snare drum, the first-ever snare drum from DW MFG. Designed in conjunction with DW artist and avid drum collector Dave Elitch, the True Cast is like no other metal snare in history. Everything on this truly collectable instrument has been manufactured and machined in the United States to exacting standards, in the spirit of all hardware and drums made under the banner of DW MFG (short for DW Manufacturing). No detail has been overlooked, and there is no snare drum that looks or sounds quite like it.

This unique drum is centered around a sand-cast shell made from bell bronze, which is formed and then machined inside and out. The internal design incorporates a concave taper that graduates from 5mm on the edges to 3mm in the center, to accentuate the resonant acoustic properties of a metal drum with integrated reinforcement hoops, but in a more gradual fashion. The result is a drum that offers the best of both worlds, with both the focus of reinforcement rings and the low-end punch of a thinner shell at both high and low tunings.

Another unique feature of this highly engineered snare is a set of sand-cast and machined Bronze-alloy counter hoops that perfectly complement the look and tonal qualities of the shell. These special True-Cast counter hoops are machined to exacting standards and contribute to the playability and musicality of the drum. Also included are machined brass Mini Turret Lugs with matching brass dual receivers. Machined brass True-Pitch tension rods complete the tuning assembly. Comes standard with 20-strand True-Tone snare wires, DW single-ply snare side and Remo Emperor batter heads.

To protect this work of manufacturing art, each drum comes in a deluxe DW MFG Anvil plush-lined flight case with proof of authenticity. Only 25 of the 14x8"” and 50 of the 14x6.5” drums will be produced.
