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.

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!

    Comments about Ludwig P-86 Snare Throw-Off:

    Ludwig should charge half of what they do for this. The action grinds when you flip it in and off and the metal is cheap quality steel. It qorks, and it's really the only way to go for snares with the p-85 throw off mounting holes, but Ludwig is really robbing their players with this one.

        Comments about Ludwig P-86 Snare Throw-Off:

        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.

        Comments about Ludwig P-86 Snare Throw-Off:

        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 replaced the strainers on all eight of my Ludwig snare drums with the P86 and Puresound Super 30 wires. The strainer is very sturdy and fully disengages the snare when off. Only takes a few minutes to retrofit a Ludwig snare. Should last a lifetime and is highly adjustable. A real classic look to the design.

              The Ludwig P-86 Snare Throw-Off is a perfect replacement for the poorly engineered P-85. I installed the P-86 on my Supraphonic and it made all the difference in the world. It's well made and has a stylish look. You cannot go wrong with this upgrade.

                          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
