    Hi Everyone,

    I just recently purchased a beautiful Brady Jarrah Ply Snare, 6.5 x 14. It sounds great. I noticed that the snare cords are starting to fray a little bit and I want to make sure I replace them with some good quality cord. Any recommendations? Also, if you are a Brady snare owner, what is your preference for snare wires?

    My Brady Jarrah Block came with nylon straps but it is a very early model. Still have them on the snare.

    I would use grosgrain ribbon or Ludwig snare cord - I use the Ludwig on my Brady

    This stuff is pretty bullet-proof and you get a lifetme supply in every roll. I think I got it at Joann Fabric a bazillion years ago.

    I use Ludwig cord on both of my Bradys. I use generic German snare wires from DfD
