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


If you rim shot a good bit or almost all the time certain rods will loosen up. Is this tension rod anywhere near where you strike at? Also do you find yourself tightening rods near or at where you strike. If so you could be doing quite a bit of rim shots and should evaluate your playing, unless of course you like to.

Tuning mid tension and rim shots will always lead to fast tuning problems. I tend to tighten the shiz out of my PDP X7 snare with a Controlled Sound X on it and it sounds awesome. Which in turn helps keep it in tune longer.

Good luck with your quest.
