I bought a Legend phosphor bronze snare drum, and it sounded great. I thought I could make it sound even better replacing the no-name snare wires with some PureSound wires and an Evans 360 300 snare-side head. Nope. It took away a lot of the sensitivity and just didn’t sound the same, even at the same tension. I replaced the old, dented cheap Mapex head and snare wires, and the magic was back.
