Drummer Mike McCraw designed and patented a series of adapter plates that allow you to upgrade the stock throwoff on a variety of snare drums to the Trick GS007 without drilling any new holes. The Trick GS007 is one of the best throws available today, utilizing a helical groove design and beautifully machined parts for extremely smooth and reliable action.
I ordered the "Trick GS007 to Slingerland kit" from Mike's "Retroplate" website (http://www.dwsnare.com/), which includes your choice of Trick GS007 (chrome or black, single- or multi-step) and the adapter plate for $94.95 with free shipping. Prices vary a bit across the different adapter kits he offers.
I received my order last week and upgraded my 1975 Slingerland 6.5x14 chrome-over-brass snare, replacing the original Zoomatic throw. You can see the results here...
