                  Comments about Puresound Custom Pro Series Brass Snare Wires:

                  Many drummers have recommended for me to use a "fatter" snare with more wires for a better snare sound, but after purchasing the custom pro brass, I found the flaws in that recommendation. For one, though a fatter snare does improve the snare drum's sound, more wires means more buzz. With this custom pro, there's hardly any buzz at all, and when I did hear it, a quick adjustment of the snare arm and it was gone without affecting the snare's sound. 2nd, the fatter snares are not going to fit your average snares simply b/c of the size of the pocket and surface area of the bottomhead. Finally, the really easy to use release mechanism makes changing that bottom head so easy. You don't have to remove the entire snare and reset the tension. GET THIS!

                    Comments about Puresound Custom Pro Series Brass Snare Wires:

                    This is a very nice snare.
                    I don't really need the Quick Release feature but I can see its benefits.
                    The brass snare does have a different sound than stainless ones. It seems to have more detail and snap? Very crisp.
                    It does also help control snare resonance but as other reviews said, nothing can totally stop that and still sound ok, IMHO.
                    I am going to compare the weight of my old snare steel snare and this one just to see if there is any significant difference.
                    It is interesting to me that the brass and steel snare have such different sounds.
                    The snare is well made and come with nice packaging and clear install instructions

                      Comments about Puresound Custom Pro Series Brass Snare Wires:

                      I have used other Puresound Wires (Blasters and Equalizers) and have to say that of the 3 I own, these would be my least favorite. However, the Custom Pros are a great option to start with if you're in the market for finding a new sound for your snare.

                      The straps are what really make this product unique. They're not as easy to swap out as I thought, but this could be because I am still relatively new to the product. Either way, the straps are awesome and almost justify the purchase in and of themselves! It's nice that they included an extra clip just in case one breaks from heavy usage.

                      As for the sound, I was unimpressed. There is definite improvement and some added brightness from the brass wires, but I think these are overpriced for the sound. There is some added sensitivity as well. However, I don't think the sound and sensitivity of these particular wires alone justify the price. I would venture to say that most people would hardly notice the difference between these wires and the stock ones that come on a decent snare ($250+).

                      What people WILL notice is the snare buzz reduction. Keep in mind that you cannot get rid of all snare buzz! These do the job of reducing it though!

                      BOTTOM LINE-
                      I give the Custom Pro's a 3.5 star rating. I would have to recommend Equalizers over the Custom Pros and Blasters. The Equalizers are much more crisp and have even less snare buzz. I also feel that because of the added crisp, the Equalizers are more sensitive and liven up your snare a bit more overall. The Equalizers are also more versatile, as Blasters are generally for louder volumes. However, definitely give the Custom Pros a try. At least you will have the convenient straps that will work for just about any other wire you try!

                      Comments about Puresound Custom Pro Series Brass Snare Wires:

                      I bought these snares to replace the stock snares on my Orange County 7x13 Chestnut Ash drum. I wanted more snare sound, so I went with the brass and I couldn't be happier. The range of adjustment on these snares is great, the quick release strap is pretty neat, and the sound is excellent.

                      It took me a little bit to get the snares seated properly on the head, but once I did it was golden.

                        I have a 14"x6.5" brass Superdrum with 20 wire steel snares that I thought sounded great. When I installed the brass 24 wire snares I was impressed - very bright & colorful with no snare buzz. The strap material was a little difficult to thread (my strainer/butt plate issue) but the install was easy after that. I forgot to make sure the cotter pin sits in the "well" stamped into the end plates (don't overlook this) so the snares were off center for a bit but finally corrected it & now works great. Just hope the cotter pin holds longterm (gave me a spare)- would have rather seen a heavier steel pin - we'll see. Great product IMO

                          I could tell it's an improvement from the snare wire that came with my snare. Not sure how good - I think I have to try to adjust it more and play around with it.

                          I believe the most important feature of this snare wire is that it has wire brackets that help in maintaining even contact with the resonant head, thus giving a more even snare wire response. The snare drum is now more lively, with a more shimmery response. I replaced the old wires because they were twisted.
                          A bit pricey.
