  • Snare Snappy Strands

    Hi guys, It has been a very very long time since i've been here. Hope you all have been good.

    Anyway so i have a Tama Swingstar snare and I was wondering how significantly different it would sound if i changed the snare strands to say puresound ones. I currently have stock snappy on them.

    Only one way to find out...give it a try and make a comparison!

      Kinda like putting high-end Pirellis on a Yugo. It won't make the car go faster but it might grip the road better.

        if any of the puresounds you get, the blasters are the best ones, more sensitive than the rest of them (although their marketing would suggest otherwise)

          actually, tama snappy snares are some of the best snare wire around ...i would not bother changing them...puresounds won't sound any better, and might even sound worse...

              Even the snappy snares that come on the swingstar?

                I put some Puresounds on a few snares that were giving me problems, and they greatly improved the sound. They seemed to tame the drum, and made them more articulate.

                The blasters are fantastic wires, and are less expensive then the classic series. I have also used the EQ wires with great success.

                  Pitched ends for shallow beds, non-pitched for deeper beds.

                    The blasters are great because they are 1/2" bigger than most wires, so you get great sensitivity at low volumes and a nice 'whack'
