These Custom Pro Series Brass Snare Wires are the ultimate in ease-of-use. They're designed with anti-choke end plates that significantly reduce annoying snare buzz and also allow the player to crank up their snare tension for a tight response without choking the drum. The Speed Release straps allow the player to disengage the snare wires without releasing the straps from the strainer or butt clamps, enabling quick and easy head or wire changes. The steel coil models produce a quick and crisp snare response.

Looking for new wires to replace my stock ones, came across these and I am not disappointed. As with any snare wire, there is still residual and sympathetic buzz, but these have excellent construction to greatly reduce it. The wires are all perfectly straight and evenly placed on the end plates. The quality with these is top notch. The speed straps make it very easy to change out the head without taking everything off, although putting the wires back on take a little finessing. I wouldn't recommend over-tightening them because of the sensitivity, but that goes without saying. Otherwise, these are very well-made wires.
I was playing a gig, and in the middle of the second song the little clip on the speed release strap popped through the slit in the end of the snares and then *poof* no more snare sound, just tom....didn't have a back-up snare and had to stop down the show to repair it with a paper clip. Embarassing to say the least. NOT a great design. Do yourself a favor and use regular old snare straps. Replaced my factory snares with these, thinking they were going to make a huge difference - not so much. Had to keep adjusting the snares to find the tight, crisp crack that I like.
The snare wires broke last year and I decided to get this one. I got the 14in and it works so much better than my DW snare wires on my old one. There is defiantly a huge sound difference, and no more vibration when I play. The price may a little more than others but it is worth every penny.
