Pearl's new SR-1000 Glide-Lock strainer (Pat. Pending) addresses two age-old strainer problems that have plagued drummers for years: the throw off lever flipping off and the tension knob loosening while playing.
The SR-1000's throw off lever features a Positive Lock system that locks in the ON position and removes the possibility of the snares turning off no matter how hard you play. The lever can be switched to the OFF position by simply pressing a button at the end of the lever. The tension knob also locks and like the throw off lever will not loosen no matter how hard the drum is played.
The internal cam utilizes ball bearing technology with virtually no play to create a smooth gliding action to raise and lower the snares with ultra quiet precision. The throw off and butt plate can be removed from the shell with the snares attached to allow quick and easy bottom head changes.
