"I take my role as the BSP shop dog very seriously. It's important for me to try to stick my snout where it's not welcome on a daily basis. Sometimes I get frisky and bump into people when they are trying to do something very delicate, like gluing up snares. If you find a big nose mark on your new drum, well, I don't know anything about that."

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.
Wrap Around Style
Wrap-Around models span the diameter of the drum and pass over the bearing edge, and require a snare bed in the bottom bearing edge in order to function properly. Our cable snares are custom made and utilize a slim design that slips easliy through even the smallest snare gates. Overall length of snare unit is 16.5 inches / 420 mm. Size of the snare end is 1 x .5 inches.
Standard style models lie totally on the bottom head and do not pass over the bearing edge (similar to a "snappy" snare). The cable will make the drum warmer in character and decrease sympathetic buzz.
