make a snare sound when the drum is hit.
Not dissing the Puresounds, but I do think there's a danger that people make more of them than is actually warranted. Run of the mill, steel snare wires have worked just fine for a long time now......that didn't stop with the invention of an expensive coated copper snare wire.
I've never bought a Puresound (too damned expensive in this country), yet all my snare drums still sound distictly like snare drums.........especially my Supra's. :-)
