I tried this out

By Matt

from SD, CA

Comments about Ludwig P85 Snare Drum Throw-Off:

This throw off is rather thin and flimsy, but if you don't disengage your snare often and just leave it on it should work fine. Have heard from others it doesn't support real high snare tension, but good for mid range. I was going to use this one myself, but the hole spacing was too short. For those who need to know, the spacing on this throw off is 2.5 inches. I needed 2 3/4, almost.....

It Gets Stuck. Do Not Buy!

By Joseph Nocella

from Wantagh, NY

Comments about Ludwig P85 Snare Drum Throw-Off:

I had this same throw-off on my Ludwig bronze snare back in the 80's and it drove me crazy back then. Now I recently bought a Black Beauty and this same thing is on the snare and it gets stuck all of the time. Now matter how much you lubricate, adjust, fiddle with it, it always seems to get stuck during a live performance when you need to switch right away. Forget about authenticity, originality, all of that nonsense. The P86 is much better. There are other throw-offs made by other companies that are much better. Stay clear of this thing. It is a headache.

      Comments about Ludwig P85 Snare Drum Throw-Off:

      This throw was on my $800 bronze hand hammered snare. I has never worked right. It gets stuck every time. I have to manually pull up on the center piece before moving the arm to tension. I would expect much better from Ludwig, especially on such and expensive snare.

      Comments about Ludwig P85 Snare Drum Throw-Off:

      I've had my supraphonic 5.5 x 14 snare drum since 1975. I have always had to push up the center part of the strainer then push the lever into place to engage and push up the center part of the strainer then pull off the lever. I changed everything with the p85 replacement, evans dry, and prosound 30. The p85 replacement has been working perfectly. If you are going past a medium pressure on the snare you are choking them. I agree that the strainer isn't the best but it works. It's like a lite weight cymbal stand (I wouldn't put too much of a load on it). I bought a epic brick and a supralite and the strainer looks like a beefed up p85 (I cant find a part no.) but I think that they should use that on all of their snares and the black beauty, it wouldn't be original anymore but they changed the process that they used to make the shell. No, I wouldn't recommend this to a friend unless they are doing a easy replacement fix and want to stick with ludwig parts.
