Wow! The generosity and knowledge of this group is amazing.

Sorry for not replying to you sooner, John. I was out camping with the Scouts this weekend. I really appreciate your offer to fix the drum.

I think I got it figured out. I spend some time examining the troublesome strainer. Took it apart, straightened the forks and removed some slop in the snare wire carrier. Doing this, along with trying different strainer adjustments, seemed to get rid of the buzz. The threaded rod is not bent, but it is a little loose. What is the best way to tighten the rod?
