I have to admit, at first I also thought they didn't. They are hard to see, but they are there. The snare beds I remember were the ones my first drum teacher had on his ancient gut snare drum. He played in silent movie orchestras, so the snare beds I remember don't exist anymore.

More to the point of the thread, I like 20 wire snares on my Acro and my Supra. I tried a 42 wire Acro in a shop when I picked mine out and I didn't care for it quite as much. I agree that good cords are important if you want them to keep a nice crisp sound.
