  • Noob drummer question [pedals moving]

    Hey all, im completely new to drumming and just got my first set ever (roland td-9) and I have a very basic question. The bass drum pad, hi hat pedal, and my double bass pedals move around a lot and I cant seem to figure out how to mount them down. I see the screws that you can turn but those dont seem to work in mounting down any of these things to the ground. I know I look very stupid for asking this but could I get some help so I can finally get it all mounted down and stop it from moving around? Thanks all in advance!!

    Spurs

    The spurs from the pedal and HH need a nice carpeted surface to dig into. I got a cheapy carpet from the grocery store for my set up in my garage. Carpet needs to be thin. A heavy shag carpet wouldn't work very well. After you get a carpet to put your TD-9 on, then you just have to play with how deep the spurs go.

      Ahh okay the carpet im playing on is too thick then! I will definitely pick up a cheap thin carpet to play the TD-9 on. Thank you so much for your advice This help a whole hell of a lot now heh

        If you still have problems, do a search for Velcro Carpet Anchor. It's like regular Velcro on steroids. Glue some to the bottom plates of your pedals (but not the recessed parts). You plunk that down on a cut pile carpet and that pedal won't move for anything. It's the only way I could keep my FD-7 and FD-8 from creeping.
