OVERVIEW

This MAG Throw Off has a purposefully simple design. It is a workhorse drop throw-off, with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-to-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw off. When the handle is in the up position, it won't release without a slight tug.

Note that DW products are not available for further discounting online. For additional information, please call 866-226-2918.

A magnet-based throw off that may well solve all of your snare related problems.

FEATURES
  • Integrated magnet

    Comments about DW MAG Throw Off:

    You should be aware that this has 1 3/8" hole spacing. This can be used for a build, or can be adapted to different spacing by fabricated a backing plate, or additional holes can be drilled (least desirable option). This unique strainer completely disengages the snares when flipped down. Furthermore, you can adjust it for the fattest, loosest snare down possible without fear of the snares disengaging because of the magnetic lock. This is a heavy strainer, but don't let anyone tell you that "heavy strainers keep the shell from resonating fully;" that notion is dubious when the snares are disengaged, and nonsense when engaged, because tension will be applied via the stretching of the snares, regardless of the mass of the strainer. The strainer does protrude a bit, so if you have smaller cases, it may be a snug fit.

      Comments about DW MAG Throw Off:

      Bought this to upgrade the throw-off on my son's PCP Ace snare. I had to slightly enlarge the mounting holes like one drill bit size up. Otherwise it was a drop in upgrade that took like 5-10 minutes to install and setup. DW included other screw sizes as well for different drums. This is a simple, yet genius design that works great and is much faster/smoother than the stock unit.

        Comments about DW MAG Throw Off:

        I have a Gretsch Catalina(Birch) 14X5 snare drum and I like my snare wires to have pretty high tension, but I also like playing some songs with the snares off. The problem I was having was that the original throw off wouldn't throw the snares completely off because of the high tension, so I had no choice but to leave them on at all times. I bought this throw off and had it retrofitted to my snare(I had to drill in the existing holes to make it fit) and I couldn't be happier. The throw off works so well that there's no rattling at all when the snares are off, even with the high tension. You may not have a DW snare, but this can still work for you with a little extra effort. Totally worth it, believe me. Plus it just looks awesome.

            The best throw off for the money. Dw has done it again. You will not be dosapointed wit the quality of it. Its built solid like a tank and once mounted, it is very easy to use. I wanted to buy the trick throw off but this so much better. Its a lot cheaper too!!
