This Dixon Classic Steel Snare is a drum with an explosive tone that is backed by exceptional cut and underlying warmth.

The 1mm steel shell, while highly durable, provides this snare with a powerful resonance. This in addition to its triple-flanged steel hoops give this snare drum a warmer, rounder sound character.

Steel shells stand out due to their incredibly bright tone, long sustain and powerful rimshot sounds. They are also more responsive than most wood shell snare drums, making them incredibly responsive to ghost notes and dynamic playing. If you’re looking for a snare drum that will cut through loud music or stand its ground on a busy stage – Dixon’s Classic Steel Snares are for you!

Steel snare drums are a popular choice for just about anything that requires a solid, bright, and cutting back beat. This snare would sound as in place in a dub/ reggae group as it would a metal act. With its smaller size, we would recommend fully cranking this drum for a quick cutting side/ accent snare.

To add to this sonic versatility, Dixon’s Classic Steel Snares are fitted with a slide-lever throw-off, allowing for instant dropping of the snare wires, opening up your playing to mid-performance changes that lets you get the most out of your snare, and in turn, your playing.

    Great service as always. Been buying almost all my gear (new and used) at Drummers Only since 2010. Numerous … More reasons but mainly the service and advice. I've dealt with most of the staff over the years, but mainly the now manager Chris who is a top lad and great asset to the store/company. Whether buying a new kit or a pair of sticks, he always takes time to give advice and support. This time it was a snare head; great advice on both selection and the black art of fitting & tuning. It's sounding sweet, thanks as always for the great service and support. THANKS CHRIS AND ALL AT DRUMMERS ONLY

    I'd been after an 18" floor tom for a while.Bought a second hand PDP. To be honest it doesn't … More even look second hand. Really happy with it especially as it was practically half the price! I'm in the recording studio tomorrow so it'll be being put to good use. Already rehearsed with it and it sounds pukka! Deep and booming. Can't recommend Drummers Only enough. Really happy and as always your goods are shipped prompt with lots of protection.

    Ordered a Yamaha electronic kit for my son for Christmas. Great service in store, delivered promptly. … More However the snare drum was a bit loose on the frame and the guys not only ordered a new part but delivered it to my home personally. Great guys, great service and great products.
  • Avatar Damiano D ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    Great drum shop has a huge selection and the customer service is decent. The guys in the shop are cool … More although they seem to be a carbon copy of each other. A little diversity in terms of personality wouldn't go a miss.
