SFT Snare Strainer & Butt Plate
The Fibes SFT snare strainer, a design exclusive to Fibes, is the
same original design that was conceived over 30 years ago. It is
made in our own factory out of solid brass and other machined metal
parts. Their are no internal springs or cams to break or wear out.
The wire snares, also made at our factory, are kept under constant
tension regardless of the snares being switched on or off the drum
head. This gives Fibes snare drums the sensitivity of a parallel
action-style strainer, without the hassle of a sophisticated snare
system. When playing a Fibes snare drum it is responsive in all
areas of the head, from the outside edge to the center of the drum.
The butt plate on the opposite side of the drum is just as unique
as the SFT strainer. It is not attached to the shell, but to the
tension casings (lugs) on either side. An adjustment bar inside
the butt plate allows the vertical setting of the snares for proper
on/off snare sound.
The SFT is more crisp and articulate than the MFT, and is recommeded
for drummers playing Jazz, or Symphonic music.
MFT Snare Strainer & Butt Plate
The MFT strainer is an ingeniously designed snare strainer with
a rotationally pivoting arm release. It is a good choice for players
who prefer using a more standard style set up, with snare wires
that end within the drum shell.
strainer can be adjusted if preferred for a "wetter" snare
sound. We recommend the MFT for drummers who play their snare drum
hard, and are playing louder volume music.
