Default Bass drum head keeps turning very slightly..

Hi drummers,

My ps3 on the batter side keeps turning very slightly and need to readjust it like every few months. Have you guys experienced this and could there be something wrong with the head or drum?

Thanks!

My first thought would be not enough tension on the head.

This. Or you have a friend with access to your drum kit who likes to mess with your head.

plus if you're using a double pedal and the slave beater is off-center.

The same guy who sneaks in at night to short sheet your bed and nail your furniture to the ceiling.

My roommate swears there is a ghost around my drum kit but I haven't had anything like this happen yet.
