        Comments about Puresound Blasters Series 20-Strand Snare Wire:

        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!

        It is as described. A Very nice, high quality product. Installed this on an old vintage Ludwig snare. Works and sounds great.

            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.

              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!

                  I was looking for a consistant wire contact across the head this did the trick. It feels heavier than the origianl equipment. I dont feel like I wasted my money.

                    This was my first set of Soundblasters, but not the last, they eliminated all buzz when the bass guitar is thumping. Sound is crisp quality seems great, my stock Pearl wires broke within 6 months, but these are much higher quality, don't hesitate to try them more than worth it.

                        I was shocked at how much of a difference these make! I have been playing for 10 years and finally decided to give these a shot after reading so much about Puresound.

                        I use them on my Spaun Vented Acrylic snare (which is already very loud) and they further accentuated ghost notes! These are some of the most sensitive wires out there. Great reduction on snare buzz and very crisp! Definitely worth a try!

                            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.
