Re: Scored a Speed King for $25
A cheap fix for the pedal clamp and your drum hoop situation: I took a 1/4 piece of solid wood ( 1/4" high and 1/4" - 1/2" wide and roughly 3" long ), tested it to make sure it provided enough spacing to clamp securely without the Yoke hitting the drum head and once I got the width right as well as the length, I glued it under the Ludwig Speed Kings hoop clamp. Sometimes the glue would give way so I always checked it when setting up and tearing down. Its a bit inconvenient but its a cheap fix and one that isnt expensive to replace.
