So, let’s talk about why Grover Pro’s snares perform better and give you more control.In addition to an array of coated/uncoated cables that run the full length of the diameter, all G2 Series drums feature a second shorter set of our hand-made Performance Silver wires. It is these shorter wires that provide the superior snare response at the softest dynamics, (even when you play at the extreme edge of the top head). The longer cable array gives G2 Series drums crystal clear clarity from mf all the way to ffff! By working together this combination provides terrific projection and focus throughout a broad dynamic spectrum.
The Grover Pro G2 model features additional snares at the center section of the bottom head. These snares are highly sensitive to even the softest stroke. While you may play softly at the edge of the top head, it is the CENTER of the bottom snare wires that respond the greatest. It’s that simple.
- They lay FLAT across the head, providing significantly more surface contact, resulting in greater snare clarity.
- The largest displacement of the drumhead's fundamental vibration is at the CENTER of the drumhead.
Years of snare research and development brings us to the conclusion that runs contrary to the traditional concept of snare functionality. By questioning everything believed to be true about snare response, we unearthed the shocking truth:
Just because you play at the edge of the top (batter) head, does NOT mean that the bottom (snare) head will vibrate at the edge. The fact is that the sound produced by snares comes from the center sector of the bottom head.
Think of it this way, you would not jump at the edge of a trampoline. That’s because most of the movement and energy comes from the center section of the trampoline’s surface.
So, while playing softly at the edge of the top head makes sense because the TOP head vibrates less, it does not mean that the bottom head is vibrating at the edge directly below!
Here is a more scientific explanation provided by acoustics expert and inventor Calvin Rose:
“So, let’s talk about why Grover Pro’s snares perform better and give you more control.
#1. They lay FLAT across the head, providing significantly more surface contact, resulting in greater snare clarity.
#2. The largest displacement of the drum head’s fundamental vibration is at the CENTER of the drum head as shown in the image below.”
Don’t be too upset. Approach this concept with an open mind,…but, don’t take our word for it…try Grover Pro snares and listen for yourself!
