Do you set them up with strings or straps?
I use the clear straps that they come with. Honestly, I am very picky about snare wires and the Gretsch 20 strand wires just sound better to me...they bring out the body of the drum without sounding dark (like the Puresounds) or dull. They still have the nice high end sizzle, but not too much....just the right amount. They are difficult to come by, unfortunately. But, they have been my preferred wires for 30 years on a snare drum. They just always sound right and feel right.

I keep going back to Pearl wires - Ultra Sound ' C " , regular plated 20 strand and if I can find them, 24 strand .
