The sound is much more open and the drum speaks clearer. I've had straps and grosgrain ribbon on before, but the string really opens it up. I had a post on this a while back. It's like the old tin can telephones attached with string. The vibrations are conducted better via the string and the drum is significantly more vibrant. Many others agreed after switching to string.
