The sound is in the name.
Vic Firth Company has partnered with Canopus drums, makers of premium Japanese snare wires, to bring you the Vintage Snappy line of snare wires. The sound is in the name as these snare wires snap at all dynamic levels without choking the bottom snare-side drumhead. Your snare drum will sound fuller and have more tone.
Made from premium Japanese steel, the Vintage Snappy snare wires feature narrower- than-standard bronze end plates, which are perfect for modern and vintage snare drums.
The Vintage Snappy snare wires are available for 14” snare drums in two configurations:
20-strand model for standard depth drums
26-strand model to give you more snare
sensitivity on deeper snare drums
