Default Re: Really Sensitive Super Sensitive

The rod is secured to the strainer by a flat, octagonal lock nut. Make sure the rod is properly seated in the receivers, then make sure the nuts are locked down on both ends. Shouldn't be any slack in the system. It 'should' all operate smoothly when engaged or disengaged.

Just a suggestion: Crank the snare head! As high as an 'A' note. Tune the top/batter medium to tight and give it a listen. Snare drum Heaven...
