Pearl TL-2030 Cymbal Tilter

Hi fellow Drummers,

I'd be interested to know if any of you have experienced issues with the Pearl TL-2030 cymbal tilter? I only ask because about 6 years ago I decided to invest in Pearl's premium 1000 & 2030 hardware range however, over the past 6 months one of my TL-2030's does not seem to stay tight on the Gyro-Lock mechanism. I have since removed the wing nut and pin to if there was any signs of wear however, I could not see anything obvious and with the closure of my local music shop (where I bought the hardware from), I decided to contact one of the UK's leading distributors for the Pearl brand however, they do not seem interested. (A great example of buying premium product and receiving zero aftercare service)!!

At the moment, I only have the confidence to use this heavy duty product for my 6" splash... Gone are the days of it firmly holding my ride in place!

Any thoughts? Has anyone else experienced a similar issue or can you advise how I can fix it?

Thanks, Miles
