Full Description

Carbon Fibre - good enough for rock, jazz, metal and... spacecraft


The DW Snare Drum Carbon Fibre Edge 14 x 5.5, equipped with Remo USA Drumheads, is suited for a wide range of genres. The upcycled carbon fibre is the same material used on spacecraft for a truly special snare drum. Although not made of traditional materials, the Space Carbon shell combines brass rings to add a hint of the familiar. The carbon fibre tone is controlled and dry, with the brass 'Edge' rings adding in more open highs and controlled mids. Not out of place in space or any stage alike, this snare will certainly catch the eyes and ears of any listener and even fellow musicians, working in a range of genres and playing styles.


A great shell needs great hardware to match


Pressed and shaped directly over the rings, this snare is build with the upmost attention and care, showcased by the ever reliable and trusted DW hardware. With a MAG snare throw off, 3P butt plate and TrueTone snare wires, you can be sure to get the upmost sensitivity from every hit. World renowned DW True Hoops - able to spread the tension evenly across the head - and True Pitch50 tension rods - trusted for holding their tuning - are the perfect accompaniment to such a precise snare drum.


Brass rings provide next-level tones


The Edge Series retains the quality of shell DW is renowned for, coupling tradition with innovation to push drum boundaries. A small amount of the shell - on the outside near the bearing edge - is grooved away and paired with a brass ring. With the carbon fibre focusing on controlling the sound, the brass rings expand the mids and highs to create musical tones. Able to handle heavy rim shots, this snare can pack a punch when cranked or in low tuning.


Edge Series

The DW Edge Series was developed in 1991, being refined and perfected since. Designed to achieve a solid tone on stage, the edge creates unmatched projection without losing the character of the drum. By cutting a groove around the shell, the rim can be replaced by a new material - either wood or metal. Marrying two materials like this creates an articulate, musical and unforgettable playing experience, one which maintains DWs authority in cutting Edge drum innovation.
