does anyone have information on where i could buy synthetic cat gut snare strands??? i've only seen them on marching band snares and i certainly don't want to have to purchase a drum just to get the snare strand!! when i was a kid i received a single snare as a gift. it was a vintage snare (possibly a jazz snare) and i don't recall who made it, but i do remember that it had cat gut snare strands-- it had a beautiful sound. unfortunately the snare was stolen from me so i no longer have it
i would like to see if i could buy them somewhere and see how they would sound on my mapex cherrywood snare.
