Default Re: John Grey Snare Throw

Ugh...I have two John Grey snares with those throw offs, I personally hate them. Cool look, but break easily. Both of mine are broke/not working. One of them has the lever broken off, super common for these types of strainers (why you rarely see that style anymore). The other one has some sort of internal issue.

You can try asking the John Grey Facebook group, someone on there might have a working one for sale. If you find one, it most likely will be in England, as they're common on that side of the pond.

Despite my dislike for those strainers, I love the snares themselves. Both are my favorite 6 lug snares. Love the lugs, low profile die cast hoops, slotted tension rods, etc. I have birch Broadway and a rare COB Broadway. The COB is currently stripped down for some TLC.
