However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

High-End Components and Construction

The DW Drums Collector's Acoustic EQ Snare is a unique snare, both in terms of design and overall sound and performance. The snare packs in a wealth of high-end components, including an advanced 3P (three position) butt plate and delta ball-bearing throw off for easy and effective alterations of your snare tension, with True-Hoop 3.0mm triple flanged hoops and True-Pitch tension rods for a reliable drumming experience and a sound which remains perfectly tuned throughout your performances. Fitted with Remo drumheads for a smooth and accurate response, the DW Collector's Acoustic EQ Snare Drum is the ultimate snare for extreme customisation and playability.

Advanced Selectable EQ Venting System

The DW Acoustic EQ Snare takes on an innovative approach to snare adjustments and customisation, offering a selectable EQ venting system which allows you to variably control the amount of air leaving the drum through a series of gates around the shell. The system is controlled through two adjustable metal handles found on the side of the snare. They can be partially or fully opened to your preference, and both operate independently for more precise tuning alterations. With the vents open, you can expect snare wire crackle with a crisp and punchy sound, while closing them results in a more focused, fatter low-end. Progressively closing the vents allows you to customise the amount of mid-range focus and control to best suit the rest of your mix. Not only does the EQ’s venting system drastically affect the sound, but also the feel and response of the snare as a whole.

Astonishing Design and Performance

The snare is the perfect combination of breathtaking design with amazing performance; a 10-ply all-maple shell is supported with 6-ply reinforcement hoops and accompanied by an exotic curly maple exterior with a natural satin oil finish. Ideal for use with virtually any drumming styles and genres, the snare is aimed at high-end and professional use, interpreting a high-level of playability combined with truly superb performance with the capability to take your drumming to new heights.

“We’re so excited to share this new technology with drummers everywhere. In fact, the overwhelming positive feedback we’ve been getting from pros like Jim Keltner, Greg Upchurch and Nisan Stewart has already proven its viability and versatility.” - Randall May
