Re: Snare wires
I added a 42 to my Vinnie Paul snare. Made a huge difference.
I just bought a Ludwig Supraphonic 6.5 x 14 Bonham snare. I added the 42 wire to it.
The only draw back is the slight snare buzz you get. But, it slight and not overbearing.
It made a huge difference. Jason's description of "fat" is great.
It did help my ghost notes also!
I doubt I will ever play a snare without a 42 wire. Best $10 you can spend.
