Default Pork Pie Throw Off Help

Yo,

So I've go got a problem with my Pork Pie throw off. Basically, it's pants. I never thought much of PP throw offs, they always seemed a bit shakey in comparison to the rest of the drum's construction. Over time it's been getting worse and it doesnt seem to take being handled from gigs/rehearsals very well even in a Hardrock Hardcase.

Anyway, i'd like to replace it but know little about the dimensions and whether any other throwoffs on the market fit the PP sizes (I don't want to drill any more holes.)

Cheers,
Tom

Contact Mike (Skitch), he sells Nickleworks and Trick retro-fit kits that will fit the Pork Pie at www.dominoretroplate.com

I do believe I can help you out with your dilemma; contact me before you head to GC. I already have a few Pork Pie customers using these!

as stated below, go with the Dunnet throw-off. they're licensed through Gibraltar and most if not all the Guitar Center drum shops carry them. i've got one on my pork pie and it's BEAUTIFUL.

my buddy has the Black Bob snare and he had trouble.. something about the screws not being long enough or they were too long... i guess cause the brass shell is thinner. anyway, he went to a hardware stores and fixed that problem quick enough.

Just reiterating what I said before; treat yourself to a Trick GS007. If you prefer a standard type of throw as opposed to the 'helical' style of the Trick, the Nickelworks strainers are fantastic too, and a bit cheaper I think. Both of those strainers are nicer and more reliable than the Dunnett. (All my opinions mind you, although the GN guys think pretty similarly too)

I'm with Ozzy on this one. I have retrofitted both my DW & Supra with Skitch's retroplate/Trick throwoff and it is money well spent. I have a Nickelworks on my Brady, and while it is nice, it's also going to be getting a Trick.
