I recently picked up a 70's COB Radio King with a 3 point strainer, and am looking for recommendations for replacement snares. I prefer Puresound's, but it doesn't look like they are making direct replacements any longer.
Please post what you guys are using, any recommendations are appreciated.
Thanks,
Steve

If this has a “bridge” that extends the snares past the bearing edge you’ll have to look at the Pearl snares for their free floating drums.

Im not sure if they are actually still available. If so, yes they will. I tried to buy some recently and couldn't find a retailer. I think I read they may be discontinued. If you find some let me know please!

Oh I see they may be available right from D’addario. Expensive!!

I found them on amazon for a bit less. It said they had 2 sets. The picture shows Super Sensitive snares, but the description states they are PF 1416's.
Hopefully they are correct.
Thanks,
Steve
