AFAIK Pearls FFS snare drums use a little wider snares thatn the usual snare drums. What snares would you recommend for a 14x3,5" maple ffs?

You can get the Pearl snares from Guitar center...They cost about $10.

You may get a dumb look from the sale clerk, but let them know this part #: Pearl S025 20 Strand Snare Wires For Free Floating.

Here is the link, in case you live outside of the U.S.A.

That should get you what you want...

Good Luck!

I love my free-floater, but do your lugs ever fall out? It's a chronic problem with mine!

I use marching drum snare wires for the bottom of my old trusty ludwig. That always gives a nice pop......probably run ya $15-$20.

I've just bought those Pearl babies and I must say that I really didn't notice any change in the sound of my snare AT ALL... and I know that the old snare hasn't been replaced for more than 5 years.... :shock: :?
