Default Re: Star snare drum 'Super Strainer No.940' buildup

Hi Ralf!

Judging by your drawing, the parts appear to be assembled properly. Attached are some pictures of my Majestic snare drum with the No. 940 strainer, taken some years ago. I still have the drum and checked it out last night. The knob sets the amount of inward motion towards the bottom hoop. Setting the knob too far out will cause the body of the strainer to swing too far in. You just need to experiment with proper setting to find what works. The attached pictures might be able to show the setting of knob on my strainer. If needed, I could possibly take my strainer apart to verify assembly, but I believe you have it correct.
