Felt and Gaffer Tape my man.
+1, I use grip tape on my kits. I buy 2" wide tape at hardware store by the foot.I bought a kit that came with a pice of 3M branded tape, off the top of my head it might be called Safety Walk.
In the past I came across a skateboard shop on an industrial estate and bought a similiarly industrial sized piece of skateboard grip tape for a couple of pounds. I'm not sure I'll ever use it all but it's seen use on both sides of the hoop on several kits since I bought it many moons ago.
Excellent suggestion, John! Thanks.Old belts work fine. They don't need to be four inches wide but only as wide as the pedal mount on top and bottom.
I posted about this one earlier...I've been using them for approx. 3 yrs.. they do use adhesive to stick to your hoop, but I've had no issues with this... although someone earlier the thread said the adhesive (upon removal of protector) took his veneer off..Excellent suggestion, John! Thanks.
Under closer scrutiny, the Tackle Protector incorporates an adhesive backing, but I did find another comparable that looks as though it may not. I would think a straight friction joint would suffice to keep the pedal in place.
2nd the drumnbase protector. Imo the best one on the market.
