The right blend of metals can be the secret to great snare sound, too.
Sabian was built on the sound produced by a right blend of metals and now they offer some special metal blends tweaked for great snare drum sound. These Blend Custom Snare Wires offer a perfect mix of metals for a natural EQ performance. These snare wires feature six strands of bronze formula wires, developed specifically for snare applications, on the outside produce increased attack. While eight strands of high-carbon steel wires in the center delivers fatter tone.
