    Default Reference Snare Cords

    I need to replace the snare cords on my Reference Snare. I ordered a 6-pack of cords, SNC 40/6. I was surprised t see that they are about 1/3 the diameter of the cords that came with my snare drum. Any suggestions from Reference Snare owners who've needed to replace the cords?

    I use the plastic strips coming with puresound wires. I like the fact the plastic don't stretch over time.

    Grosgrain ribbon from a fabric/craft store. Cheap, super durable, and you can get it in different colors.

    Many great suggestions here. I found a solution for cord replacement. My wife was re-stringing our blinds and I noticed the spool of cord she was using. I was surprised to see it is the very same material that Pearl uses for it's snare cords.
