Not sure whether it was the nylon cords or the wire upgrade but the minor annoyance has been solved.

It goes without saying that a snare drum is going to sound different amongst the musical environment it's being played in. BTW I had strings with the Ludwig wire, the wire was the 60s acrolyte type with the clear-ish epoxy ends.

I recently got a broadkaster bop kit including a matching 14x5 snare and I think I'm having similar issues. However it seems that the outermost wire behaves slightly different than the all other wires. Since the snare wires are attached by a plastic straps in the center of the plates this may increase the issue on the outer wires.

Do these wires come with cords or do you have to buy them extra?


If you've tried everything and it still sounds weird, there's a good chance that the edge or snare bed is defective. Get someone who works on such things to inspect it.
At first I thought the snare bed is missing, however, it is just very wide and not so easy to see.
