Re: Slipping bass drum beater?
Cheap screws, as in soft metal or wear and tear will result in a lack of holding strength over time to the point of it not holding anymore. How can that be fixed on those worn out areas I'm not sure but that's generally what would cause this problem. I guess Lock-tite on the screw would work that's if it's still able to be threaded.
Honestly I've never experienced a beater slipping out like that, whether it's on floor model Pearl double pedals, DW 3000's or Tama IC's. The single screw has yet to fail me but I also don't over tighten and it seems the stuff I bought was made with decent materials.
