Comments about Puresound Blasters Series 20-Strand Snare Wire:

Tried these on a 70's era supraphonic and was impressed. I couldn't believe that a set of snare wires could make such an improvement to the sound of a drum. Put these on without any tuning or new heads and it was like WOW!!! what a difference. Bought a set of Sonor delites about six months ago and was pleasantly surprised to find 20 strand puresound blasters on the snare drum. They have improved the sound of every snare I've tried them on. Good product, good price.

Works Great in Homemade Cajon

      Comments about Puresound Blasters Series 20-Strand Snare Wire:

      While of little interest to most of your customers, a few might be interested in the use of the Blasters Series 20-strand wires in a cajon. They sound terrific and if they didn't no other attribute would matter. But in addition, mounting them in a homemade cajon is very convenient. I improvised an adjustable holder using a wooden crosspiece on each end, separated by threaded rods. When the wires are tensioned properly with the adjustment nuts, they can then be suspended, full length vertically (no cutting such a nice piece, please!)and made parallel to the inside surface of the 1/8 inch birtch plywood tapa. Mounting the wires using a wood screw in each center slot raises the wire from the mounting surface. Taking this into account, I found that an approximately 1/32 inch setback of the mounting boards from the cajon's front edge gives me a pleasing crisp sound with no extraneous jangle. Thanks for making my first canjon build so satisfying.

        I am a 62 year old drummer, i've been playing since i was 10, i play mostly county but on occasion, we play a little rock, and the older rock, but regardless, I put these snare wires on my DW's, i love the improvement they made, i love the POP they give, but warm and fat. I personally will never put another set of wires on my snare! Give these a shot, you will absolutely love the sound they give you!

            Comments about Puresound Blasters Series 20-Strand Snare Wire:

            I'm not a drummer but I own a drumset. I own one because I own a recording studio and I offer the use of my drums to clients that record here. I had to teach myself how to set up and tune the drums for studio use. After a while, I got pretty good at it.

            Over the years I've tried other types/brands of snare wires. I keep coming back to these PureSound wires. I find they provide a nice crisp sound. And they hold up well with all the different clients I have in here. Perfect for recording pop/rock/metal. I understand these things are very subjective. Everyone is going to have something they prefer for whatever reason. I highly recommend them.

            Fantastic Snares

            See all my reviews

            Comments about Puresound Blasters Series 20-Strand Snare Wire:

            These wires are great. I just put them on my Ludwig Supraphonic and they sound amazing. They are very sensitive, but my favorite part about them is their beautiful crack. They are perfect for the slightly tighter snare sound I prefer, but you can also loosen them to give you a nice, fatter rock sound.

            Comments about Puresound Blasters Series 20-Strand Snare Wire:

            Seriously, the single best thing you can do for your snare is to put these strands on there. I'm a fanatic about tuning and heads but had overlooked the importance of decent snare wires for many years. Not anymore. I was simply amazed at how much better my snare drum sounded after installing these.

            Comments about Puresound Blasters Series 20-Strand Snare Wire:

            I've been using these snares for a while now on my 14x6.5" Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute snare. I normally tune the drum fairly tight, and these wires helped maintain the sensitivity that was lost with the stock Yamaha wires. I also found that they emphasized the "crispness" of the birch in the drum in comparison to the stock wires. For the price, they do a great job, and they do what they claim to do.

              After a snare strand broke off my current snare drum, I searched around for a new set of snares. Based on reviews I snagged this one, and although it cost a little more than other's, the sound is very nice. I immediately noticed a difference after installing them. Very pleased with my purchase!

                  Comments about Puresound Blasters Series 20-Strand Snare Wire:

                  These are the best snares I have ever added onto a snare. They can make an average snare drum sound 10X better and a pro sounding snare drum sound 10X as well. They are a little pricey but after you play them, you'll know how great they are. I am never going back to "run-of-the-mill" snares again.

                  Wow, I put these on a cheap snare that I found on a little entry kit in my guitarist's basement. When I put them on, it made that cheap snare sound like a $200+ snare. I was blown away. Very sensative when played tight, but loosen them up a little and they give you a fat kick to the stomach. Get these!

                    I have tried every trick and parts to make my snare sound to my likings but always something was missing. I read many positive reviews of this and gave it a try. I cannot believe a wire makes such difference. I like the sound when tuned a bit "choked". Sounds good to my ears and recording without EQ.

                            Really cuts thru, still has a lot of snare buzz from other amps but not much sympathetic buzz from tom toms. Great sound, more solid. Will definitely purchase more for the rest of the armory.
