  • wing nuts or standard thread sizes

    On the KD-8, I wish I didn't have to use a drum key to break down the pedal…taking those two screws in & out increases the chance of loss and is a pain just to screw & unscrew with a drum key. While we're wishing, they should come up with a better way on the DW two legged hi-hat stand too….4 bolts and you have to use a drum key.

    DRUM COMPANIES….leave the drum key for head tensioning….wing nuts is the way to go!!!!

    Agreed: I have a PDP double kick pedal which needs a drum key to tighten the clamp onto the hoop of an acoustic bass drum; complete pain in the ass.

    How come guitarists get to have their twiddly bits permanently attached?

      Agree. But some higher end pedals do have wingnut clamps for the hoop.
      So we probably can fix that.

        Hey Rythemtip cool to see you have a brady snare.They're made in a small workshop in my old neck of the woods in Perth western Australia and are awesome.

        Never seen a peddal that didn't have wing nuts for mounting to the hoop.I've got a DW7000 and a sonor pedal.The sonor has a massive wing nut on the side so you dont have to put your hand under the foot plate which s pretty cool.My sonor bass drum actualy has wing nuts on the top half for quick adjustments while your gigging.

        Can't see why you couldn't buy a wing nut and replace the lugs.should only cost a couple of bucks.

          Yeah, the Brady is a killer snare.... Mine is a 7x12 Jarrah wood.

          I was not talking about the kick pedal having wing nuts, I was talking about the Roland KD 8 kick trigger. In order to set the pedal up and pack it up (lay it flat), you have to remove two short screws with a drum key. They could have used wing nuts for that. I guess I will scout out Home Depot for a suitable wing nut, but should I have to?

            Awesome you got the jarrah.No better wood then jarrah.

            That makes more sense.I'm sure you'll find one easily enough and they should do it,makes things easy.
