Cable Snare Units

We make the perfect snare solutions for your DIY drum, repair, retrofit, or upgrade. The BSP cable snares have a slim, easy to use design that does not need bulky clamps. The snares easily slip right through your snare gate, no matter how small, and connect to your throw and butt. Make a few tension adjustments, and your drum is ready to gig.

Size of the snare end is 1 x .5 inches. Requires a snare bed in the bottom bearing edge in order to function properly.
