Replaced the factory wires on my TAMA snare , and got a louder and more distinct crack, while being less harsh as well, and with a pleasing "reverb" sound after the hit. Nice!
I'll admit I haven't tested a lot of wires myself, but I blind tested by listening to lots and lots of snare wires in big tests on YouTube, and I always liked this one best in every video!
This is absolutely one of the better snare wires in the market. Whether it's the very best or not is of course a matter of taste, but it certainly works for me.
