Hi

I use a set of Ludwig WFLs. They make a great sound, however they are all also blessed with chronic pedal slipping issues at both high and low extremes. Each drum has a range of only about a major 3rd. Everything appers to be good with the mechanisms, it's even stumped a pretty good tech.

Any wisdom out there? My feet are getting sore holding pitch! :rolleyes:

cheers

Andy

Time for new heads. Change them with something that has steel insert rings. Also, if the drums are very old the spring may have compressed and lost a lot of it's ability to counter the tension of the head.
