    Default Same lug loosening itself

    Hey all, I realize this could be a very newbie question but here goes:

    Is there anything "normal" about one lug coming loose right where I hit rimshots? It is the only lug doing it and I swapped the screw for another one, same thing happens.

    I just found it odd, started thinking it might be due to the rimshots slacking the hoop for a slpit second and letting the screw vibrate itself loose.

    It's a bronze PDP snare, not the highest quality but I like the sound. Kind of hoping I won't have to change the whole lug....

    Thanks!

    Yes, loosing a tuning rod while playing rim-shots is a common occurrence. Invest in these: Gibraltar SC-GLL Lug Locks - 6-pack (less than $6.00 USD for a 6- pack). Also lubing the lug housing will also help keep the lugs from falling out if you don't use the lug locks.

    yeah I'm also a heavy hitter and one of my favorite snares is notorious for coming loose.

    How many lugs in your snare

    I have a 10 lug snare and I have to tighten the lug every time I play. Very annoying. I’m a heavy rimshotter

    It's an 8 lug. Will definitely try one of these solutions! Thanks guys.

    Decide whether this is love for the craft or simply an ego thing.

    Happens all the time to me. First thing I do after every gig is to check the floor under the snare to be sure I'm not leaving one behind.
