28 Strand snare wire has been developed to enhance and improve the sound of Pipe snare drums. Every aspect has been analysed to get the optimum performance. These include getting the number of coils ( and stretch ) in the snare wires exactly right to maximise the contact with the head. The tension in the wires has also been carefully analysed as well as selecting the right number of wires ( 28 ) to achieve the desired and controlled amount of “ buzz”. In addition we have experimented with different types of finishes resulting in a bright chromed wire to give a brighter sound.
Note: This is for a Top Snare Wire.
