DW Collector's Natural Lacquer Over Twisted Rainbow 6.5x14 Snare - SO#1119627
The most popular wood for drum making, maple is a hardwood that produces maximum resonance, projection and attack. Combined with reinforcement hoops, it can produce a more focused sound and is well suited for live and studio applications.
VLT™ (Vertical Low Timbre)
In experimenting with different exotic woods as alternate shell making materials, DW's Custom Shell Shop discovered that in addition to the different tonal qualities inherent in every unique type of wood, alterations in grain direction can also greatly influence sound. In a VLT™ shell, the outermost and innermost plies run vertically, rather than a traditionally horizontal configuration. The vertical grain places less tension on the shell, allowing it to vibrate more freely, resulting in the lowered fundamental pitch. For those players who prefer a lower overall tone while still maintaining maximum resonance and attack, VLT™ can be ordered as an option on all Collector's Series® Pure drums.
This drum was taken out of its factory box, photographed, and then resealed in the original box. It may be removed from the package to be professionally tuned, which may result in some minor stick marks.
