Hi again my hi-hat pad seems to be spinning on my hi-hat stand as part of my Roland TD-27KV setup. I don't think it's the rod that's screwed into the base area of the stand as I checked it out and seems to be securely screwed into place. Also when my hi-hat is spinning the rod isn't loose or needs to be turned to tighten it. I heard that someone put something perhaps on their stand in order to physically stop the hi-hat from turning but not a lot of detail was given in comparison to the rod type fix. I'll check it out again though just incase.
