      Comments about Pearl 20-Strand Bridge Type Snare Drum Wires:

      Bought these low cost snares to use inside self made cajon (box) drum. With a bit of manipulation it provides the necessary "sizzle"...I suggest using 2 halves inside for premium sound.

          • For Pearl Free Floater

          Comments about Pearl 20-Strand Bridge Type Snare Drum Wires:

          My Pearl Free Floating Brass Snare wires were starting to buzz. Apparently there is no snare bed with this type of instrument. But the buzz went away when I replaced it with this. This fits perfectly if you have the Pearl Free Floater but I would not recommend it for something else. This is the 20-wire set and I find that it improves upon the sound of 12 wires I had because the drum tone is so overpowering (at least with the brass free floating shell). Again, this wire sits fully across the entire width of the shell, like a Ludwig Super Sensitive. Without benefit of Ludwig's elaborate strainer system on the Super Sensitive, the margin for imperfect fit is very close. I'm very happy that this OEM replacement functions the way it is supposed to.

              They only fit Pearl Free=Floating snare

              Comments about Pearl 20-Strand Bridge Type Snare Drum Wires:

              I can't really comment on the quality of these wires. I had to return them because they only fit free floating snare drums. they are about 15 3/4" long. Unless you have an extended snare strainer, make sure you read the description before purchasing. Musicians friend is sending another set that fits, but I had to pay the return shipping.

              Not for typical 14

              By Cymbaholic

              from Nashville

              Comments about Pearl 20-Strand Bridge Type Snare Drum Wires:

              Bought these as I'd always had good experience with Pearl stock snares, and price was right. But these are not for a typical 14" snare drum. At least the ones I got weren't. They were just under 16" from end to end, including the clips. Clearly (in hindsight) the words "bridge type" and "free floating" in the product description were meant to alert me to what I was buying, but I think it could have been clearer. That's OK, I had already ordered a few days later some of the PureSound Custom Pros to try those and to get the free snare side head. Sending the Pearls back.
