Default Re: best snare wires in the market

My experience is with the DW True Tone Snare wires, Tama stock wires (issued on 13" Artwood) and Puresound Custom Pro Steel and Brass wires.

After changing to the HD dry on my DW collectors (14") AND Tama Artwood (13"), the tone was quite dull - but at least the annoying ringing was removed!
The Puresounds were suggested for more sensitivity, and the Brass for more brightness.

The Puresound Steels were placed on the DW Collectors, and the difference was slightly better than the stock issued True Tone wires. In a live situation or gig, maybe not too noticeable. You might notice a slight difference if mic'd or in a studio.
The Puresound BRASS on the 13" Artwood was quite an improvement. It was a bit brighter, more sensitivity.

I'm a fan of the Puresounds, I suppose since a $23 x 2 commitment. They require extensive tightening to get you beyond the "buzzing" point. Along with this, your reso head must also be synchronized and tightened accordingly. But remember, all of this is my own personal preference, and others may find the sweet spot more easily.
Overall, they DW True Tone competes quite well with the Puresounds. The Tama stock wires are in a spare parts bin. Puresounds offer the sensitivity, but with this, requires symphonic agreement between its tension and also the reso head.
