your throw off ....where is it?

I've never given it much thought. I always under the impression it should just be on the last side of (or right if you're left handed). It makes sense that way. To me anyway.

I keep it at 7 or 8 O'clock usually. Basically where it's comfortable for my left hand to reach if I need to switch while playing.

12 o'clock is crazy unless you're sure you will never need to turn them off.

Usually keep it angled inwards towards the middle of the drum set. I used to have it more accessible, but I accidentally turned the dial a few times with my hand, so I moved it out of the way.

hmmm... interesting.

this is exactly why I started this thread

.......random thought.....and I have no idea why I notice these things....but

I watch a lot of drummers play and I always for some reason check out where their throw off is.....most guys have it somewhere between 6 and 8 o'clock

I was watching a drummer last night who had it at 12 o'clock....never saw that before...


I personally leave mine right between 6 and 7 directly to the left of the bottom snare basket arm

....so purely out of curiosity ......where is your throw off?
