What's you goal in terms of sound / response? If you want less snare response and more tone from the drum itself - then use fewer snare wires... If your desire is greater snare sensitivity and a slushier sound - then go with the 24.

Back when I started playing 12 wires were the norm. They increased over the years to where 20 are normally seen now. If it was me, I'd get the 20 just for the lower possibility of sympathetic buzz between the two, if you care about that. I use 20 strand Puresound wires on four of my snares.

Also - if sympathetic buzz is an issue for you, try the Puresound "Equalizer" wires. They are missing the inner few strands. They sound great - but greatly lessen the buzz... I have a set on one of my Supra's and they really do work.

anyone know anything about gut snares? I read something that said they're good for jazz and have a less sharp sound. I looked at some ludwig ones but they were for marching snares and cost $100. I want a good sound for classic be bop style jazz dry, woody, and really sensitive. should I keep looking for gut snares or are wire snares better? If so, should I go with coiled, straight or coated?
