Black Swamp Replacement Snares - Product Information

Give your snare drum added projection, response, and tonal depth with Black Swamp cable snares. They utilize coated and uncoated stainless steel cables in two different styles.

Black Swamp cable snares are custom-made and utilize a slim line design that slips easily through even the smallest snare gates, eliminating the need for bulky clamps. Black Swamp cable is silver-soldered directly onto the steel end plate. After many years of manufacturing thousands these snares, we have never had a single snare returned to us for failure at the solder joint!

Wrap-around cables span diameter of drum and wrap around the bearing edge. This style produces the most sound and requires a snare bed.

Standard cables fit on any snare drum (lies totally on snare head). No muss, no fuss, and can be used on drums with very shallow snare beds.

Models with all coated cable produce a drier tone, while combination models add the bright snap of uncoated cable. All stainless units are the brightest (but not as bright as snappy snares). Includes snare cord and instructions.

That's why I shop at Steve Weiss Music

Comments:

You can occasionally get a better price from some website that wants to drop ship from the manufacturer in 2 to 5 months. I buy from Steve Weiss Music because they have the item on hand and you will have it in a week generally. These replacement snares are excellent and were just what I wanted. NO fuss no muss.

A great investment

Comments:

I wanted to convert a 10 lug wood drum into a concert snare. I took a fine file and some sand paper and deepened the snare bed to about 1/8" deep, put Diplomat weight heads on the drum, and added these cable snares. Voila! A beautiful sounding concert snare! These work great, but be sure that your butt plate and strainer are high enough to allow the wrap around. If you don't want to go through all this, get the comperable Black Swamp standard snare, which are basicly the same sound wise. Yes, they cost a bit more, but they last forever under normal use. Great product!

Expensive but worth it

Comments:

I have bought several of these over time. Each time I put them on, I love the change in sound. What you get is more of a traditional, old-school, gut snare kind of sound. Think old civil war parade drum. More drum shell sound comes through, and less of the metallic coiled buzzy snare wires sound. Sympathetic buzzing is reduced, too. I love 'em. I prefer the stainless steel cable to the coated cable.

Great... but $$

Comments:

I have bought these and completely converted several snare drums into quality concert sounding instruments... however.... this product used to be around $30 ... and now it is over $ 50? It was quite surprise when I looked to purchase this product again and it has almost doubled in price!

They really work!!

Comments:

This BS snares change the sound of my snare drum, I'm using the snares on a Pearl Sensitone steel shell, 14x6 1/2 and they really make my snare a concert snare drum... It's dryer, less buzzy when snare's are on...perfect... They also changed the sound of my sonor snare drum...I didin't like it, I think it's because this snares works best with metal shells as my Sonor is a Beech shell, 14x 5 1/5.... I bought the standard blue coated/steel snare...
