When the string is drawn tight, the edge of the patented snare plate is pulled upward putting the snare in full contact with the head. Snare plates in the CP series are made using a special bonding agent between the plate and the coil that provides greater durability and finer response compared to previous designs. Snare coils on CP series snare drums are now covered with a special new finish that allows more of the material’s tone to come through. *Strong Snare Strings Nylon strings are covered with a nylon braid for maximum strength and durability.
