Pure Sound Equalizer snare wires work!

I have a Tama Stewart Copeland COB snare that I love.
But... the stock snare wires had way too much sympathetic buzz with my toms. I tried different tensions, and the only thing that would cure the buzz was if I cranked the snare wires so tight that it choked the drum. I tried the equalizer snares earlier on a 8" wood snare and just didn't notice that much difference. I had them sitting around so I decided to put them on my COB. Wow! They cured the sympathetic buzz by over 90%. The snare buzz went from "that sucks" to "hardly noticeable". I guess my take away from this is that they work wonders on the right snare.

Great that it's working for you. Don't forget that some snare buzz is totally normal, though.
Well, I guess we can become used to it, and it occurs so much that I'm sure some people probably like it, but I be happy if the only time I heard my snares was when I was hitting my snare. ;)
