    Hey Lads. Question… If I have a 14×6.5 2000 shell and the 14×5″ LUGS, apart from getting long tension rods can I use the short lugs on a deeper 6.5″ snare.They are both single bolted from the middle.

    And where can I get snare wires?

    For snares IIRC Nick Hopkin and/or Blenheim Drums (Mike Ellis) supply them. Apart from looks I doubt that the shorter lugs would be a problem if you can get the right length rods, but could reduce potential value.

    I don’t currently have any wires available. FYI: the 6 1/2″ deep version of the ‘2000’ is a ‘2003’.

    The 10″ marching 2000 Is called? Can the marching 2000 snare’s throwoff mechanism fit on the 14×5?

    Inside the clear plastic cover at each end are two tiny leaf springs and you really don’t want any chance of those getting lost or bent, and do not try to adjust the snare levelling screws unless you really know what you are doing! Reliable mechanisms, but leave them as the factory set them!

    Cool Captain. Wish me luck. I’ve got a 14×5.5 shell. I’m installing a strainer from another 2000 from. Hope it goes smooth. I won’t touch the height adjusting screws. I hope they haven’t been messed with!

    Ok I got the marching drum 14×12 home. Anyone know where that online schematic is on how to disassemble the throwoff on the 2000’s?

    Help! I’m stuck! I got everything pulled apart but can’t get the cross bars removed? I suspect it’s the little L-lever picture 3 and 4? Do I remove this on both sides? If so, how?

    Here’s the culprit.Picture #1… And it’s done! Can’t believe I did it! That C-clip was a pain in the arse but it went back in smooth. So I remember hearing of people using washers or double springs to tension the snares. Mine are just not quite tight enough.Any ideas? And for future reference … 14×12 marching flobeams fit on 2000’s without adjusting the height rods!

    Hello,

    To get more tension on the snares:
    I took away the big spring below the knurled nut on each side. That worked for me.

    It was not the springs. It was the throwoff switch. It was causing the the cast hight adjusters to not spread out enough and give tension to the snare wires.? Very puzzling. I just took off the throwoff switch and they tension perfect.I can still release the wires by pushing down on both sides of the flowbeam. Anyone solve this problem? Drum still sounds like butter though!
