does anyone have any experience of the Puresound "blasters" im looking into them and was just wondering how much, if at all they can improve the quality of your snare sound in comparison with sort of snares you get as standard with most mid range drums. cheers

I'm likely going to go Puresound Custom 20s, maybe even 30s. I need to see what the reso head looks like to determine if it needs to be replaced soon, I've only had this snare for 5 months or so.

remember, the more wires, the more buzz when other instruments are played. I remember one time I bought one of those 40 strand snares. the bad thing about those is that it's impossible to get the wires tensioned evenly.

Im a fan of the "German Metal" snare wires. 14" 16 or 20 strand. They're only like $13 too and are an improvement over the cheapy stainless ones.

Puresound Wires completelyy changed my snare sound. It's so much fatter and more "wet" sounding with them. It is definately worth the price.

I put puresounds on a Rogers Powertone, and hated it. Changed them out for something totally generic, ...... and loved it. Put the puresounds on something else, and it was great. It really depends on the drum. You might like them on that drum, and again, you might not.

I find that the more wires you add the less sensitivity you get. I found this because it is just like add muffling to the reso head, I went from a tama 40 stand to a generic 20 on my Yamaha Brass 14x6.5 I had off a cheap snare and the drum sounded way better with the 20 stand. The same is to be said with tighter wires, the tighter the more resonance is lost resulting in a boxy tone. I suggest to everyone to sit behind the set and play with the wire tension while striking the drum, bring it way up and way down and you will see how much of a difference it makes.

As for puresound i like 'em they are made great, all the solders are filed smooth and the wires all seem to be equally taunt.
