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 of these snares, Black Swamp has never had a single snare returned to us for failure at the solder joint!

Wrap-around cables span the diameter of the 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). 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.

  • All Black Swamp Percussion Replacement Snares come in a 14" length

Very clean, sensitive and responsive snare

Comments:

I have several of these Black Swamp cable snares both wrap around and standard style. I'm convinced the wrap around style gets the cleanest and most most responsive snare sound possible. It's far superior to any snappy wire snare I've ever used. And I've tried almost every high quality snare wire. I have the coated blue cable and the stainless steel wraparound models and coated blue cable and blue/stainless combo standard style models. Obviously these are pricier than snappy wire snares but they're still a lot less expensive than buying more snare drums to try to find a certain sound. (I'm guilty of that too!). Treat yourself to the stainless for stainless for more sensitive playing or blue coated for more powerful playing.

Snare strand

Comments:

Very pricey compared to any other snares on the market, but with its narrow strands, it sure makes a snare drum pop. Not much snare sound (very narrow and thin strands), but that drum pops.

Quality Craftsmanship and Effective!

Comments:

The Classic Gold wires are the second set of coated stainless steel wrap-around snares that I've purchased. The first set was a W14C (the standard coated blue), which I used on an original-build field snare. The coated cable really does replicate the sound of gut snares for the vintage field drum sound I was after. I subsequently cannibalized those snares for use on a 5 1/2 x 14" kit snare that was giving me a sympathetic snare buzz tuning nightmare. It immediately corrected the problem caused by the curly wires. And I dig the sound that my vintage Rogers Powertone is putting out. I decided to go with the gold to replace the missing snares on my field drum, which had been reduced to "tenor" status via the "donation." I did so for aesthetic reasons because the gold more closely resembles vintage gut. The gold has 12 strands versus the 16 strands on the blue, but I noticed no perceptible reduction in sound output.
