      A 30-strand snare wire that's handcrafted to perfection with premium-grade steel alloy wires

      The Super 30 Series from Puresound uses the same steel-alloy wires, handcrafted construction methods and exclusive copper end clips as the Custom Series in a 30-strand format designed to increase snare response and articulation. Compared to other wide-format snare wires, the PureSound Super 30 wires are able to create a distinctive and penetrating sound without choking the drum or sacrificing its feel. Additionally, the Super 30 snare wire needs only a slightly wider than normal (3 to 3.5 inch) snare bed for optimum performance.

      Features
      • 30-strand
      • Medium-gauge
      • Evenly spaced
      • Professional quality
      • premium-grade steel-alloy wires
      • Handcrafted construction

      Increase snare response and articulation with this 30-strand snare wire!

          I have been a drummer for 38 years and in my quest to find that perfect, powerful snare sound I have tried every kind of snare with every kind of head and every kind of snare wires. Well, I found the right combo, which includes the Super 30 snare wire. In combination with the heads I use, the Super 30 gives my snare that fat, warm, powerful sound that every drummer wants. This is the perfect item for your snare, whether you are a beginner or pro. Can't find that snare sound you are looking for ? Try the Super 30. You will be surprised.

          I loved this thing and thought it was worth the price for the first 4 months.. then I started breaking wires. I figured "Hey, I still have 29 what's the big deal" well it started with one then another broke then another.. well I broke probably 6 wires before I got fed up and couldn't get a good sound out of my snare, so I put a stock set of wires that I got on a Pork Pie snare 3 years ago and it sounded fine, not as good as the Super 30 when it still had wires on it, but better than it when it was only 6 months old.

          Great product but just doesn't last for what you pay for it. Go for the Gibraltar 42 strand it's half the price and last just as long if not longer (I had one before this)

            I heard a friends snare that had these and I had to have them. We both had older Ludwig's and they sound 10 times better. I would recommend anyone at least give them a try.

              Good wire set, but not for every drum.

              By So Cal Guitarist

              from San Bernardino CA

              Comments about Puresound Super 30 Series Snare Wire:

              A couple of reviewers have some good advice and useful tips. I would say get these from a source where you can return or exchange them (if possible) if they don't work on your drum, as they are a bit costly.I just put these on an 8x14 Tama Bubinga Elite snare drum and they work really well on it. There is quite a difference in response from the 20-strand set. They worked well on a 6 1/2x14 Tama brass snare drum also. I will not be putting them on my Pearl Eric Singer snare drum, however. The snare bed is somewhat narrow and deep on that one, apparently designed to maximize the properties of a 20-strand set.As for the 42-strand set, my 5 1/2x14 Tama Starclassic copper snare drum came with one on it (though they come with a 20-strand set now) and it works very nicely on that drum. So I plan to try both the 30-strand and the 42-strand sets on other snare drums to see how they respond.I would also say to try and ascertain if a set would work on your drum before spending the money, if possible.

              Overrated

              Comments about Puresound Super 30 Series Snare Wire:

              I used these on an OCDP 14x8 snare for recording a few months back. I honestly was unimpressed.I wanted something with more strands to bump up the sensitivity of the deep snare. I had tried out a Gibraltar 42 strand off of my main recording snare a few days before and it sounded amazing. But the GC that supplies were purchased from the day before recording was out of the Gibraltar 42s. I figured these would be just as good if not better. Well, they sounded good and solid and bright, as all Puresounds do, but the increase in sensitivity over the PS Blasters 20 strand that was on the drum to begin with was negligible. I could've saved $30 and stuck with the 20 strand and it would've sounded the same.Next time I'm ordering ahead and sticking with the Gibraltar 42s.

              Comments about Puresound Super 30 Series Snare Wire:

              I don't understand why people were giving these snares bad reviews. I love them! Once I bought these and put them on my snare, it made me excited to play drums again. I didn't have a problem with the snares being too tight or too lose, must be user error. The reason why I put the value at a 3 is because they are pricey. I've had them for a year or so and none of the stands have broke, like all cheap snares do. I recommend these to anyone who is willing to fork up the money for quality.

              Comments about Puresound Super 30 Series Snare Wire:

              I purchased this snare wire about three or four months ago and it is awesome. The articulation of my snare is great. I had a little buzz initially but all I had to do was adjust the snare bed, as mentioned by others, and it sounds great. It is a little on the expensive side but how often do you need to replace these? If you want a great sounding, clean snare, then get this wire.

              Yes, it was user error

              Comments about Puresound Super 30 Series Snare Wire:

              To all the people that posted terrible reviews, there is hope yet for your 30 strand snare wire. First read up on snare beds and why they are important, if they aren't cut out deep enough and wide enough (8 inches for 16-20) your snare will be very un-sensitive and will rattle/buzz, plus if you tighten it to get rid of the buzz you'll choke the snare...WHAT I'M GETTING AT IS....I'm almost positive your snare doesn't have a snare bed cut for this wide of a snare wire.. therefore you'll have problems with it.I cut mine wider to use these and they are awesome!

              Puresound 30 strand snare wires

              Comments about Puresound Super 30 Series Snare Wire:

              I hesitated to purchase, when I read other reviews, but I've used PureSound before -- and it's quality merchandise. I put these on an LM400 Ludwig snare (whose stock snares were pretty sparse). I followed the instructions for installation and the sound of my snare drum is now phenomenal. These snare wires changed an OK sounding drum into a great sounding drum.

              user error?

              Comments about Puresound Super 30 Series Snare Wire:

              I read the other reviews on these snare wires, and thought 'its just user error'. I was wrong. I tried to install these in every way possible: right-side up, up-side down, tight, loose, and with all different kinds of ties. They wires just won't install flush with the snare head, and there are some problematic wires that seem to rattle more than others. Im returning this and sticking with my cheaper snares...
