I'm preparing for a short run of "All Shook Up" and needed to replace the old, worn-out wires on this snare. I usually use generic 20-strand wires, but I borrowed this Ludwig 12-strand set off another drum.

The reduced wires give it a nice dark woody vibe, almost like an old mahogany snare. I might change it entirely when I hear how it sounds in the theater (I always tailor my sound to the show and the room) but this is a great starting point.
