PureSound Customs Are a Sure Upgrade for Your Snare

Whatever snare drum you play — steel, wood, or acrylic — PureSound Custom series snare wires can have you sounding your best. PureSound Custom snare wires are manufactured in the USA from crisp, lively, medium-gauge steel, and with consistent sizing and spacing. This means all wires tension evenly across the bottom head and react at the same time, allowing you to quickly find your ideal balance of shell tone and buzz. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer to learn more about our PureSound snare wires and find the set that's right for you.

16 or 20 strands — which snare wires should I choose?

Here's a tip from Sweetwater drummers: the more snare wires you have, the crisper and more sensitive your snare drum will become. So if you prefer a slappy, white-noise sort of attack, more strands is your best bet. On the other hand, if you like a more prominent shell tone, fewer strands may yield the sound you're after. Fortunately, PureSound Custom snare wires are available in both 16- and 20-strand models, and in a variety of sizes to accommodate every drummer's needs.

PureSound 14" Custom Snare Wires Features:

  • Traditional-style snare wires
  • 16 strands
  • Crafted to perfection
  • Easy to find your ideal balance of shell and snare
  • Medium-gauge steel is crisp, lively, and durable
  • Consistent spacing — snare wires tension evenly across the head
  • Designed and manufactured in the USA

Sweetwater Advice

Andrew Malloy

Replace your gnarly, twisted, stretched, lifeless and gutless snares with this and you will hear your drum come to life. I recently made the change on all my snare drums and it has transformed my drums to give me a super wide range of tones and sensitivity.
