No. DW has a finer pitch thread. It's supposedly helps keep the drum in tune better/longer.Question: Are the threads of all tension rods the same?
Back in my bike shop life, there were French threads (left hand to tighten), British threads (finer pitch), American threads (ASE) and Japanese & Taiwanese threads (metric). It forced shops to buy their specific parts. A true PITA.As for other manufacturers over the years, I dont know. It wouldn't surprise me if some were different.
Seriously? I've never dealt with those. I've run into a few gas fittings like this, but that's it.Back in my bike shop life, there were French threads (left hand to tighten)
Peugeot. And Motobecane until they began using Taiwan for cheap bikes.Seriously? I've never dealt with those. I've run into a few gas fittings like this, but that's it.
Why would an engineer/designer do this? We’re they getting a kickback?When I worked in the speaker factory, we literally had about 250 (if not more) different types of screw to keep sorted and inventoried. It was a huge pain. What was even worse is: same manufacturer, same part, different model, different screw. Peavey is horrible about this.
Excellent question. I wish I knew. The Yamaha stuff was consistent (imagine that). ElectroVoice was consistent amongst series, that's it. Cant use an EVF woofer screw in an EVH, so on and so forth. Peavey was a mess. Special screws, special bits. Ever see an SPH2 screw or bit? Neither has anyone else. Peavey loves them.Why would an engineer/designer do this? We’re they getting a kickback?
