My speed cobra is making a clanging sound, especially when I do doubles. The footboard does not hit the wingnut, and I don't know what else it could be. I've already confirmed it's the pedal not the kick drum.
Here's a video I took :
Definitely sounds like the footboard itself, and not anything on the frame (spring assembly, cam, beater, bearings, etc). I just tapped mine with a drumstick and it made the same sound. It sounds louder than a loose heel plate. Does it make that noise if you play constant notes (same speed as your doubles)?
It doesn't make the same noise if I play constant note. It seems like it's coming from underneath the footboard. The very top of the footboard detaching and hitting the chain. Attached pic to hopefully clarify what I mean
Maybe the chain is too loose and bangs into the bottom clamp of the footboard as in your first photo. Could also be a foot technique. BTW I get the same sound from lifting the footboard and snapping it down- the chain has to sag a bit for that. How do you get the footboard up at that angle to cause the chain sag? I can’t do that on my tama while playing: my beater return would have to take it thru my foot!
Do you think it could be my beater angle? I recently adjusted it, then put it back to what I thought was the original, maybe I didn't put it back right? I used to have an ekit with built in pedals, this is my first "proper" pedal so I don't really know anything about it.
