Anybody got any experience with the Pearl Ultrasound graduated tension snare wires? I read about them in the new products section, and they sound like an interesting solution to a little problem I've been having.
I've got a Tama 6.5"x14" Bronze, outfitted with Gibraltar 42-strand wires. In most applications, the sound is really great - kind of wet, but quick - if that makes any sense. My only complaint is that the response seems to die at lower volumes; a soft stroke just doesn't seem to activate the snares. Wish I could have my sound all across the dynamic spectrum.
The Ultrasounds come in three shapes - I (all snares evenly distanced - pretty much what I've got now with my Gibraltars), C (snares are longer and looser in the center, and get shorter and tighter, toward the outside), and D (the opposite of C). Which way should I go?
Also, anybody got an idea what these things might retail for?
