True-Pitch Tension Rods
This PDP Concept Series LTD Mapa Burl snare drum features a 100% European maple shell and a figured mapa burl veneer to deliver an experience that’s easy on the ears and the eyes. The 7-ply shell produces the classic warm tone and resonance of maple with mid to low-end attack. The antique bronze hardware features stylish dual-turret lugs and high-end DW appointments like a MAG Throw-off™, True-Pitch Tuning™ rods, and Remo heads. This limited production snare has a striking black burst finish and is available in 5.5” x 14”.

European Maple Shell and 20 Strand Snare Wire
True Pitch Tension Rods and Remo Heads
This unique snare is equally at home as a side snare or primary choice. The all maple shell in combination with Remo Powerstroke-style batter head with extended inlay ring produce a decidedly immediate, dry tone. The lack of resonance is perfect for studio applications and can be used as a desired effect to compliment another snare on the kit. Change out the top head for a more traditional “popcorn” snare sound to take advantage of all of the versatility this compact drum has to offer. The LTD Dry comes standard with dual-turret lugs, Remo heads, MAG throw-off and True Pitch tension rods with brass lug receivers.

This 6.5”x 14” (PDSN6514MWNS) 20-ply hybrid shell snare drum is a welcome addition to the complete line of PDP offerings.

Outfitted with a MAG throw-off and distinct dual-turret lugs, it’s also available in 7x13” (PDSN0713MWNS), 8x14” (PDSN0814MWNS) and 5.5x14” (PDSN5514MWNS) dimensions. All of the sizes produce a fat, throaty sound with a pronounced attack.
