Installing a throwoff


Junior Member
I'll be installing a throwoff on a snare build soon and was wondering:

What height should a throwoff and butt plate be installed from the snare bed?

I used dial calipers and a stick to measure the distance between the bottom head surface and the bottom of the throwoff while engaged on my 3 snares. The two Premier measure a distance of 1.25" and the Pearl measures 1.50". Those are govt numbers, not factory lol.

butt 1/3 rd of the way Up from Bottom edge
Strainer: depends on depth of shell
5" dead middle
6.5" lower closer to bottom edge
I dunno just guessing
