Today in the workshop: gorgeous DW Collector’s Series snare in for some serious attention. This snare had been beautifully taken care of and played on with much respect, but sometimes things happen unexpectedly.
For some reason, all the internal screws and hardware of the snare became extremely rusty whilst the outer hardware remained pristine.
We gave it a simple wipe-down externally but every single screw on the inside needed replacement, leaving a trail of red dust in their wake. Luckily I had a small pile of extra DW screws, because those lugs don’t accept the normal M4 or M5 screws.
When we didn’t want to risk damaging the snare by wrestling with the rusty air-vent, we scrubbed and painted over it. Preserving the snare took first priority.
So whilst this snare was not difficult to service, it certainly took skill and experience to handle. We’re just glad that it looks and sounds absolutely fantastic now.
