This is an ideal cord for a sustaining, “natural bound” and “stabilizing” snare wire. The only drawback used to be the string suddenly breaking while in use. Canopus has conducted research on core fiber material, thread volume and weaving techniques to come up with a very durable snare cord with natural binding (compared with our products in the past). The fitting of these snare wires have vastly improved whether loosely or tightly adjusted. This is a most suitable item for situations where delicacy is required (in a recording for instance).
