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.

Versatile snare wires

Comments:

I experimented with the blue coated cable snare on several drums. This cable snare will give any snare drum a cleaner snare response while allowing the drum's tone to resonate freely. I tried it on a Pearl Omnicast, Ahead Bell Brass and my 51 year old Ludwig Supraphonic (bought new for 6th grade band!) and it turned each of these drums into my idea of a perfect snare drum.

Standard Stainless (with a warning)

Comments:

I installed the Standard Stainless Steel model on a 5" Black Beauty with Diplomat weight heads and die cast hoops, in search of fast response and dark(ish) tone. I got exactly what I was looking for! Love it! I am mostly playing jazz but this configuration still has more than enough bite for backbeat playing. Well worth the investment. With that out of the way, the included mounting cords are stiff metal with a thin outer layer of fabric, not unlike the infamous "blue cords". I have seen photos of drums with nasty cuts on their edges caused by this type of cord under high tension, so I instead used basic nylon cords.

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!
