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.

Uncoated Stainless
W14S

Uncoated stainless produces a brighter sound than coated cable, but is drier than traditional snappy (coil) snares. 

Blue Coated Stainless
W14C

Blue coated stainless cable produces a darker timbre than uncoated and replicates the sound of traditional gut.

Uncoated/Blue Stainless
W14CS

Uncoated/Blue combination snares are a top seller due to their versatility in making just about any drum sound great.

Gold Coated Stainless
W14G

Our coated gold stainless snares are made with a proprietary cable wind and coating to replicate the sound of vintage Hinger snares.

Standard Style

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.

Uncoated stainless produces a brighter sound than coated cable, but is drier than traditional snappy (coil) snares. 

Blue Coated Stainless
S14C

Blue coated stainless cable produces a darker timbre than uncoated and replicates the sound of traditional gut.

Uncoated/Blue Stainless
