I used this strainer to replace the original P 83 (?) on my 1967 LM 400. As many other reviewers have stated this a great strainer with an improved design over past models. It functions simply and effectivly with an elegant design and look. My favorite part is that this was a direct replacement part for my 47 year old snare. No drilling necessary. I unscrewed the old one and put on the new one. Genius! In a time where everything is tossed out as soon as it doesn't work, it's nice to see a company like Ludwig bucking that trend as a manufacture. Thank you Ludwig. I HIGHLY recommnend this strainer.

In Aug 2012, I installed this throw-off to replace the finicky P85 my Supra LM402 had. It's now Dec 2013 and the top half of the P86 throw-off just fell apart leaving me scrabbling to make shift repair 20 min before band rehearsal. Fortunately it didn't happen during a gig or recording session!
As a result, I went with a retro plate from Mike McCraw and installing the Trick GS007.

      Comments about Ludwig P-86 Snare Throw-Off:

      I bought this product to replace my factory throw off, it was getting hard to use. Ludwig did a fantastic job it fit in the factory hole no filling and redrilling and looks better than the factory one. the only thing i would comment on is the adjustment screw needs a lock it moves to easily. But all in all great product

      Great item, way too expensive.

      Comments about P-86 Snare Throw-Off:

      This is the only reasonable replacement for the awful P85. It looks great, operates very smoothly, and costs way too much. Considering the quality of the individual parts, this should cost half what it does. Great item, way too expensive.

        Comments about Ludwig P-86 Snare Throw-Off:

        This is an excellent snare strainer. 'Classic' look and functions very well. It should come as standard equipment on all Ludwig upper end snare drums. I recently bought a Supraphonic that came with the stock P-85 strainer. First thing I did was replace it with the P-86. Fits easily since Ludwig has designed backward compatibility for the hole alignment. Well worth the money to upgrade your Ludwig snare.

              for those of you that have a quality ludwig snare with a p85 on it. replace it with the p86. My black beauty 5x14 sounds great.The only thing thats given me problems was the p85 throw off.After reading the good reviews and correct replacment for the p86. I spent the extra money and man I'm glad I did.

              Soooo much better than its weakling P-85 counterpart, you can't go wrong with this P-86 throw-off. It's a bit pricey but well worth it. It works (and looks) great!
