New Shaw Snare Wires & Bolts
The snare wire is a vital part of the sound of the snare drum. We at Shaw have spent a great deal of time examining all available snare wires from early 1960′s production models onwards, researching all aspects from materials to spiral diameter and a pitch. We finally settled on our optimum design fror these snare wires.
Shaw Snare wires have bronze endplates for resonance and strength. Suitable for tape or string mounting (tapes included). Raised string guide to ensure that the plate sits flat. The end of the plate is also reinforced where the tape is tensioned for added strength but without compromising plate thickness. Uses 0.5mm wire with a spiral repeat of 1.35mm.
