    Default Snare wire theory

    Hi all,

    I have converted to Grover non-spiral wires. It's hard to explain why, I just like them. First had a set of jazz dark which I bought used for half price, just got a new club dark last month...

    When I go back & forth on the same snare, I like qualities of both: the jazz has that sensitivity but the club has better projection.

    So naturally I thought about modifying the wires to have a combination of both. Removing the wires and brazing them back on is simple enough, but here is what has me a little puzzled:

    -Should the middle or sides get the thinner jazz wires?

    I know the fundamental is in the center and overtones project outward, but has anyone else done this kind of thing?

    Thanks!

    I don't really know. Whats the total strand count? Maybe you can put the jazz wires to the outside, on both sides and the club wires in the center.
