Comments about Pearl S-022N 20 Strand 14" Replacement Snare:
These snares are really great, just make sure to take your time and install them properly. Snare wires are probably the most overlooked part of a drum kit. Check out the snares you have now and replace them if they are stretched out too much. Proper head contact is crucial in achieving a great snare sound.
One important detail that Pearl has incorporated is how the cord lays properly where it's laced through the snares. They created a little indent which provides the proper contact on the drum head. You may already be aware of this, but if this is new info for you, this may just be the ticket to eliminating your snare problems.
I highly recommend these snare wires and see no point in spending 2-3 times the money for what I believe is not any better.
I have these on a wooden snare and an aluminum shell. My snares are 14x5, I don't get into deeper snares because I play mostly with brushes and these are nice sizes for getting a sensitive response.
Good luck with you snare wire experiments. you can also check out youtube for advice and installation.
