Throw offs

Post  Belltone on Sat Jan 01, 2011 6:18 pm

I guess im like most drummers and my snares stay on all the time with just a little tweek now and then, but for those of you who incorporate 'snare off' parts in your playing which throw offs do you like?

There seems to be a few more options and inovations available these days. The trick throw seems highly regarded also the dunnet r2.

Also is an adjustable but end plate actually usefull or more just a gimick?

There are some throwoffs,mostly vintage,like the ludwig super classic(which you can still buy new from ludwig) like this http://www.vintagedrumguide.com/images/other_stuff/tommy_piorek/wfl_classic/wfl_classic_large.jpg where as you can see the lever extends above the rim,enabling you to engage/disengage the snares with a flick of the stick very quickly during a song. On the adjustable/fine tension Buttplate thing,I had a slingerland snare with that feature,and I don't think it is strictly a gimmick,what it did that I noticed was that it enabled you to adjust the tension or do extreme tension adjustment on the snares while still keeping the wires centered on the drum.
