Since 1995, Fat Cat Snappy Snares wires have been engineered for high performance, superior sound and long life. Made of high carbon steel wire, attached to stainless steel end plates for the finest quality and durability.
Deciding which snare wire is best can be determined by the depth of the snare bed on the drum. Some snare drums have little to no snare bed which will require choosing the P style end plate. This will work the best because when the Fat Cat is attached and fully tensioned, it will automatically force the snare wires into the bottom head resulting in minimal un-wanted rattling and maximum contact and sensitivity. Choose the NP (No Pitch) style end plate for snare drums with a deep cut snare bed. In this case, the deep bed is creating the contact and there is no need for the reverse angle on the end plate. Fat Cat endplates are designed to use both Cable or Strap with minimal off-set and can be used to attach to most standard throw-offs.

I've tried several brands of snare wires over the 40+ years that I've played and have found Fat Cat snares to be the best. The fact that they come with or without pitch to match your snare bed makes all the difference in the sound and stops ringing. I never had 30-wire snares before and just tried them on a classic Ludwig Supraphonic and they sound amazing. I don't think that there are better snares at this price available with the capability to match your snare drum. At this point, I won't use anything else.
