Here you get a really solid, crisp and well-sounding snare for your snare drum.
For snare drums with regular or wide snare beds.
Fat Cat makes both a "pitch" and a "no pitch" version of this 20-strand snare model.
This is the "no pitch" model, which is intended for snare drums with regular or wide snare beds.
The difference between the two models lies in the design of the small plates that holds the strands. These plates are designed so that they provide the best possible contact between the drum head and the snares, with the least amount "buzz".
Since a snare drum with built-in snare beds already places the strands slightly lower in relation to the drum head, the plates that holds the strands on the "no pitch" model, are made so that they align with the head in the best possible way.
Fat Cat from the USA and is known for their innovative and high-performance snares. Fat Cat uses only first-class materials, which ensures that you get a fantastic sound from their products.
The 20 strands are made of 90% carbon stainless steel, which gives an extra crisp sound. The end plates are made of stainless steel with a nice gun metal finish.
If you remove the hoop and the drum head from the bottom of your snare drum, you can quite easily determine if the snare drum has a snare bed or not.
Simply place the drum - with the bottom facing down - on a flat table. Now see if light escapes under the edge of the drum where the snares should sit. If you can see light passing through, your snare drum has snare beds.
