Oops, my bad, I misread your post. it seems you like this throw off, well I happen to have one.................
No worries! What kind of issues did you have with your P-86? I'm really diggin' it.

I swapped the batter head out for an Evans 360 reverse dot Power Centre head. This is now my go to Rock gig snare drum.
Wow, that engraved BB is friggin' gorgeous! You're a lucky man. And I'm not normally big on diecast hoops on metal snares either, but this thing sounds so good that I can't imagine it sounding better with flanged hoops.
