Puresound Percussion announced the immediate availability of its new, 30-strand "Super" snare wires for 14" snare drums, model #S-1430. Utilizing the same specially-formulated steel-alloy wires, handcrafted construction methods and exclusive copper end clips as the rest of the popular Puresound Custom, Vintage, Equalizer, Concert and Marching snare wire lines, the just-released 30-strand version is designed to meet the demands of professional drummers and is the widest set of wires ever offered by the snare wire specialist.
"We understand that drummers and drumming situations sometimes require the increased activity and articulation that only an extra wide set of snares can provide," comments Puresound president and founder, Yoav DeBasc. "But, often the wider you go, the less sensitivity you get. Because of the higher quality of materials and manufacturing we use-- as well as way the wires are precisely spaced and mounted on our copper end clips-- our 30-strand 'Super' wires are able to create the distinctive, penetrating sound of conventional wires with 40 or more strands without choking the drum or sacrificing its feel."
DeBasc adds that although an extended snare bed is essential to complement any set of extra-wide wires, another advantage of Puresound's S-1430 is that it needs only a slightly wider than normal (3 to 3.5 inch) snare bed for optimum performance.
Carrying a suggested retail price of $49.95, the new Puresound S-1430 30-strand "Super" snare wires are available at leading drumshops and music stores.
