Super Solid Snare Drums from DW

One-Piece Perfection

By Andrew Lentz Published September 28, 2009

As their name suggests, the Super Solid snare drums from DW will anchor any setup.

Super Solid™ technology is a molecular compression process that transforms common hardwoods such as maple, walnut and cherry into snare building materials five times denser than the average shell wood.

Super Solid shells are heat-cured for shape integrity. From there, the raw “super shell” is precision-machined into a perfect cylinder inside and out, and reinforcement hoops are integrated into the shell: The result is a true one-piece shell with nothing is glued on or applied.

Available in three thicknesses: 3/8”, 1/2” and 3/4”. Size is 14" x 5.5” in maple and oak and all DW Custom Shop finishes and drum hardware colors. More sizes and woods to come.
