Great quality product but be careful not to be dissapointed!
rimshot10 07.09.2018
I give 5 starts because throw-off is really good. It is made very nicely, great quality and works perfect. With P85 I had constant problem with strings loosening up during play - tension screw in P88 is "jump" regulated so it will not move anywhere.

The problem is in description of the product and I hope that also Thomann will correct it.
It says: "Ludwig P88AC Throw-Off, Throw-Off & Butt-Plate Pack, fits all snares with former P83/P85/P86 throw offs" which gives the buyer the impression that the whole pack will fit to your Ludwig snare with either mentioned throw-off on it. The true part is only about the throw-off.

My Ludwig Acrolite has a P85 throw-off and P32 butt-plate. P88 throw-off was mounted with no problems, but the butt-plate from the P88AC pack (P35) replaces only P33 butt-plate (this is actually writen on the product box!) - it has completely different hole spacing than P32.

So for this I am only able to use 50% of the prodcut (unless I will make new holes in the shell), so I am only 50% satisfied with the prodcut, but as said - this is offer description problem, not the product itself.

Simple, solid, smooth.

Very well constructed from cast parts. Fits perfectly as a replacement for my supraphonic's P85. Super solid with no play in the moving parts and the throw off is as smooth as silk. The snare adjustment knob is geared, much like a torque wrench so there is no chance of it loosening during playing.
The fact you also get the butt plate makes this good value for money, and the art deco look makes any drum look classy.
Only very minor criticism is that on the supraphonic I had to file the screw holes slightly to accommodate the new screws but this only took 1 minute & was easy to do.

Très bon déclencheur, mais pas si "universel" que cela concernant la buttée...
Nicky Silver 01.11.2020
Acheté pour remplacer le déclencheur d'origine sur une caisse claire Ludwig Acrolite 14''x5'' (réédition de 2013).
Le +: le déclencheur P88AC est bien mieux fabriqué, dans un acier robuste. Silencieux et facile à régler, cette partie est parfaite! 4 longueurs de vis et joint caoutchouc fournis pour un montage polyvalent quelque soit l'épaisseur du fût (bois ou métaux)
Le -: la buttée ("contrepartie") voit ses axes de vissage moins larges d'un bon centimètre par rapport à la buttée d'origine percée sur le fût. (d'ou 2 étoiles de moins question stabilité). Résultat: soit percer de nouveaux trous, soit conserver la buttée originale. Ce que je fis. Du coup, achat trop cher pour l'usage soumis. Je garde l'ensemble, mais mesurez bien vos axes avant de vous lancer!
Fait le job dans l'ensemble.
