I just ordered up some new snares. Pretty excited to try them out. A friend of mine recommended them to me. Anyhow, in the past I have just boiled them up in logwood crystals or spruce boughs. I've seen some guys paint or dye their snares white. I'm not sure how to do that. Do I just use white spray paint? Won't the paint just come off if you boil the snares? Does the paint affect how they work? Does the paint give a funny smell? I remember hearing or reading somewhere about taking a piece of white chalk to camouflage your snares. Anybody hear of this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
