Tight Screws A Miracle For Drum Tuning


This weekend I recorded the often Musformation referenced band The Walk Ons. Drummer Alex Still had brought in his Pork Pie Vistalite remake snare. I have owned one of these snares since they first came out and quickly got a little sick at the idea of having to deal with this snare and its inability to stay in tune. Despite it being one of my favorite sounding snares of all time, this drum goes out of tune quicker than any drum I have ever used. No longer the case, since Alex had fitted his snare with Tight Screws. These tiny little miracles kept the snare in tune better than any drum I have ever experienced. They literally turned a drum I found unusable into a rock solid piece of equipment. I am totally blown away!
