Anyone heard of this? I was talking to one fellow who used two throwoffs, one on each side of the snare, for increased control and fine-tuning (no butt plates). Is this legit, or just overkill?
I agree. What does a throwoff do? It just takes the snares away from the head. I can't see how doing the same thing on both sides would be any different from doing it on just one. In fact, having to work both throwoffs to drop the snares, on opposite sides, would be clumsy. Unless you're thinking it would be convenient to be able to work one or the other, using whichever hand is free... but does anyone really need that?Thank you all for the informed opinions. I am talking about one set of snares with a throwoff at each end, instead of a butt plate at one end. I have the opportunity to do this to my snare and I wonder if it would be beneficial. I don't immediately see how it could be.
