DW Eco-X 14x5.5" Snare Drum - Sustainable Bamboo/Birch Shell - Banana





Bamboo never sounded so good. Actually, it’s bamboo and birch that make up these eco-friendly shells. These two sustainable resources, combined with DW’s sonically-innovative X shell technology and a host of professional, drummer-friendly features, put the all-new Eco-X Project in a class by itself. Now it’s easy to go green and sound good doing it. The Eco-X Project, Environmentally sound.

Eco-X Snares feature 10-plys.   


   To make a better instrument, sometimes you have to go back to the basics. We spent nearly a year-and-a-half designing and perfecting the most consistent counter hoop we’ve ever produced. It’s called the True Hoop™ and it’s a major advancement in the relationship between bearing edge, drum head and counter hoop. As drummers, we know how critical that relationship is to tuning and tone. The True Hoop™ is just that, round and flat, and without the typical variations you often see around stamped holes. It even has an attractive new touch: a fully-rounded outer edge. They now come factory installed on all Eco-X Project drums as well as all Collector’s, Classic's and Jazz Series Drums and are available in all drum hardware color options.
True Hoops™ are also gauged in graduated thicknesses to factory-match various drum sizes.
Drums 8" and 10" in diameter come with 1.6mm True Hoops™, while 12"-18" come with 2.3mm. All snare drums come with 3.0mm True Hoops™.

A purposefully simple design, the MAG™ (U.S. Patent No. 7,902,444) is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz. The innovative new 3P, three-position butt plate, allows you to easily and accurately toggle between 3 different levels of strainer tension. The combination of the MAG™ throw-off and the 3P Butt Plate is the most reliable and adjustable strainer system we've ever built, and come standard on all Collector's, Classics, Jazz and Eco-X drums.
