They’re tough to find but they are out there.

Hi DrumBob!

I have a Kent strainer. It's a bit tweaked and missing the snare string clamping bracket. I think that part is still on yours? If you'd like to experiment with my strainer, you can have it for the cost of Priority Mail shipping... $7.80! If interested, I can take some pictures later today and post them. Let me know!

-Mark
