Default Re: !HELP PLEASE! Question About Snare Drum Tension Rods

Thanks Porter
I tend towards midrange tuning, so I don't think the rods will bottom out in the "Imperial lugs".
It is irritating that they (Tightscrews), don't make a 60mm tension rod, considering the Ludwig Supraphonic 402 is probably the reason for coming up with the Tightscrews concept in the first place!
It has been a troublesome snare for me, and other friends. The drums can be tricky to tune up at the best of times, nevermind remain in tune for a whole song.
Trouble is, they do seem to record annoyingly well, hype aside.
