Nylon Snare Wire Belt

スネアワイヤーベルト CNB

We have selected flexible nylon fiber for its excellent durability in a woven belt. With this innovative snare belt, we got a natural response of a snare wire similar to the snare wire cord, and what is more, the choked sound caused by conventional film belt is not noticed at all.

Snare Wire Cord

スネアワイヤーコード CNC

This is an ideal cord for a sustaining, “natural bound” and “stabilizing” snare wire. The only drawback used to be a sudden break of the string while in use.
Canopus has conducted research into core fiber material, thread volume and weaving technique to come up with a very durable snare cord with natural bound (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).

Canopus Snare Wire Cord - Each of these sets of wires came with Canopus Snare Wire Cord (CNC), though if you don’t check the packaging carefully, you might overlook it. These braided cords can be found folded inside the cardboard insert. Be sure to check for it. Otherwise you could accidentally discard it!

Canopus Snare Wire Cord

Each of these sets of wires came with Canopus Snare Wire Cord (CNC), though if you don’t check the packaging carefully, you might overlook it. These braided cords can be found folded inside the cardboard insert. Be sure to check for it. Otherwise you could accidentally discard it!

This cord did a dependable job of holding the wires in place beneath the drum, and the cord never broke, frayed or loosened during my review. The cord allows the wires to self-adjust a bit when under tension, in case you mistakenly put the wires on at a slight angle.

Canopus Nylon Snare Wire Belt

Many drummers prefer to use fabric ribbon to attach their wires and Canopus has these drummers covered too. They let me try out their Nylon Snare Wire Belt (CNB). Fabric belts are usually preferable to a plastic strap, which can break or tear. The Canopus nylon belt is also better looking than a plastic strip. The belt is black with a pair of red stripes along the edges of it giving it a very sharp look.

A fabric belt attaches through a slot in the wires, and it’s wider than a snare cord, so if it’s inserted at a slight angle, you could apply uneven tension to the wires. But since this strap is woven, there are horizontal weaving marks that came in useful when attaching the wires. It was easy to see if the belt was exactly straight by checking to see if the lines in the belt were perfectly aligned as I put it through the butt plate and throw-off.

It held perfectly and didn’t seem to stretch or loosen at all during testing.

The nylon snare straps. I've put them on every snare have. I always used the plastic straps and they've always slipped and broke. The straps are extremely durable. Love em.
