It is important that you choose a good snare wire for your snare drum, when time comes for a replacement.
Whether the replacement is due to the fact that the current snares have been worn out or otherwise broken, or you just want to try something new, keep on reading …
The snares are an overlooked part of the sound of your snare drum.
But in fact the snares has more to do with it than you just realize.
If you are familiar with Drum Gear's SnareWorks snare drums (which a very large number of professional danish drummers already use), then you will also know that these snare drums are known for their good sound. And part of the credit for this great sound comes from the Drum Gear CSS snares.
Luckily you can get them here at CymbalONE. And no matter what brand of snare drum you have, you will most likely find that you improve the sound with these - especially if you still have a factory-fitted set of snares on your snare drum.
Drum Gear's Carbon Steel Snares (CSS) gives your snare drum new life. The CSS snares sound really good, are sensitive to play, and have a more rounded and warm sound characteristics to them - also less high pitched than the usual chrome plated stock snares are.
The snares have 20 individual carbon steel wires that are soldered to each of their brass plates. Since each wire is not "stiffened" by a chrome plating, they vibrate a little slower - thus giving their fat and slightly dark tone.
In addition to the snare itself, both cords as well as plastic attachments are included in the package.
You can buy these Drum Gear CSS snares in 4 sizes: 10", 12", 13" and 14".
This is a "best buy" product where you really get a cheap upgrade of your snare drum, compared with the results you achieve.
In fact, these are the snares used on the snare drums that we use for all of our cymbal demo videos here on CymbalONE.
