Grover Pro snare wires


Senior Member
Interesting. My regular snare was hooked up the same way. I wonder if running the strings under would affect it as well. With the flat mounting plate, it may have the effect of raising the wires off the head just a bit.
Running the cords this way is the standard and should force the wire end of the plate toward the head under tension, resulting in good contact.

edit: In my experience, you have to experiment. Some wire sets work better with cord, some with straps. Always good to have both on hand.
