Not for a free floating ring

      Comments about Gibraltar SC-STO Deluxe Snare Drum Throw-Off:

      I thought this strainer would be nice and sturdy, but apparently it bends too easily with a little bit of pressure. I tightened it to a free floating snare drum tension ring and the pressure of the screws (not even that tight) bent the entire strainer, bent the screw inside, and totalled the strainer. I was hoping this strainer wouldn't let me down, but alas it is not strong and sturdy as I wish it would have been.

          Comments about Gibraltar SC-STO Deluxe Snare Drum Throw-Off:

          I've been a fan of these throw-offs for a while. They can be used on most Pearl Free Floaters and any Pearl snare that has a SR-017 strainer. The hole spacings are 1 1/2" from center to center. I've used these on Yamaha and PDP snares as well. I just wish that they'd work on Pork Pies. I >hate< the cheap throw-offs that they put on those! Such a great drum, such a lousy sthrow-off. Sorry Bill!

              This was a direct replacement for my Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage so no hole drilling or mods needed. I just used a piece of foam rubber on it so there wasn't any metal to wood contact.

                  This throw off is great. I bought it to replace the junky throw off on one of my Ludwig snares. Has a great grip on the snares and is as smooth as freshly churned butter. Had to drill a new hole in the drum because the screw spacing on this throw off is pretty small, but that's more of a temporary inconvenience rather than a disadvantage.

                  Comments about Gibraltar SC-STO Deluxe Snare Drum Throw-Off:

                  This was a great replacement for the factor Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage throw-off. I basically bolted on and went to my gig the next night untested. It worked great.
                  This was a great replacement for my Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage snare drum. It fit really well. A couple things to note if you're buying this. The lug screws that hold the snare strainer are really long and just barely clear the lower hoop. It would be nice if they supplied a thin gasket/rubber damper to place between the throw-off and the shell. This would help protect the shell, isolate it and bring it out far enough so there wouldn't be any interference with the upper or lower hoops.
                  I thought the quality of the components was really good. Form, fit and function are all good.
                  I shopped around for a while and this was the best price by far.

                  Excellent! Buy it!

                  Comments about Gibraltar SC-STO Deluxe Snare Drum Throw-Off:

                  I've had all kinds of snare drums, including the premium-priced ones, and this is right up there with the best throwoffs I've ever used. Heavy duty die cast, smooth as silk and secure (won't unlatch itself). It'd be nice if Gibraltar would advertise the hole spacing on their throwoffs and end butts. This one has 1.5" vertical spacing. It would also be great if they would include an isolation gasket. I put one of these on a 4.5" (PDP called it 5") thick snare shell and this throwoff didn't stick out from the shell and hoops far enough to work without a thick gasket/spacer I had to fabricate out of some rubber material as I had seen some manufacturers do. Great price, great value.

                  A very durable throwoff.

                  I have finally upgraded from my piece-of-crap snare throw. When I recieved this, it was way more than in the picture. It is extremely durable, and at a very good price. please buy this.
