PRAISE FOR OUR CX SNARES
“Thank you for the snares! I put them on a wood-shell drum and used them Monday night at a concert. They made the drum sound great!” – Rick Mattingly – Publications Editor for the Percussive Arts Society, and author of six instructional drum set books.
All snares are available for 10″-15″ drums
While most other drum manufacturers focus on features that have negligible impact on sound quality, at Grover Pro we believe that the snare wires are the most critical part of any snare drum. It stands to reason that it is the interaction between the wires and the bottom head that accounts for the majority of a snare drum’s sound. That’s why we personally handcraft each snare unit in our factory outside of Boston.
Since 1980 Grover Pro has been hand crafting snares that fit any standard snare drum and which provide drummers with an increase in snare projection, sensitivity, and “fatness” of sound. Unlike ordinary, cheap “snappy”snares (which only contact the bottom head at the apex of the wire), our snare wires make continuous contact across the bottom head over the entire length of the wire. This means that our snares have a contact area many times greater than any other wire snares! Increased contact with the bottom head translates to maximized attack and projection across a fuller spectrum of sonorities.
Since we manufacture each unit by hand, our snares are available in a wide range of sizes. Our snares come in both standard length and extended length models. The extended models are specifically manufactured for drums that allow snares extending beyond the edge of the shell. The letter “E” in the model number identifies our extended range models.
It is important to note that our snares require a well-defined snare bed (most drums have this), and that they require less tension than ordinary wire snares. You will know if you are over-tensioning our snares when they start to sound choked and less resonant. If you do over-tension, just slightly back off the fine-tuning knob on the snare strainer and the issue will correct itself. Use your ears—you will hear when the snares are correctly tensioned.
