  • Broken ADP-30 Thread

    Hi Everyone. The threaded pivot section of one side of one of my ADP-30's has sheered clean off at a gig this evening. Anyone know if it's possible to take out the pivot, remove the snapped piece and replace it? Basically, where the wingnut, washer and spring are in the right of this image, that piece has snapped in the thread.

    Hard to describe without photos. Stock image attached for reference

    You can tap out the the pin that holds the piece in place and remove the broken part. Then go to your pearl dealer and buy a replacement part. Put the new piece in place put the pin back (slightly hammer it in) and its like new

      Scary, I was thinking the same thing, but unfortunately that’s not an available part. I also don’t think it’s something a hardware store will have.
      The only option, other than buying a new ADP30 is to take the piece out of an ADP20.

        Unfortunately I don't think it's an option. Local drum shop are waiting to hear back from the distributor but 99% sure it's now cactus. Very annoying! Everyone agrees it's clearly a default in the clamp as you can tell by how clean the break is. Lifetime warranty isn't a lifetime warranty on hardware I'm pretty sure. Booooo. What a waste.

            You are incorrect sir. Try a little research. It took me less than 3 min to find this information.

              I think you’re both correct. The US warranty certainly covers the clamp, but the warranty might be different down in Oz.

                    Wow! Okay... I see what you mean.

                    The roll pins can be tricky, but they make tools specifically for that kind of thing. The part will be difficult to find unless you can find a cheap donor part, but it may cost less to just buy a newer used one. I’d probably just look for a full replacement part.

                      All is not lost. After removing the roll pin, take one of the corresponding bolts off as well. Take this to a Community College that has a Machinery class and ask the instructor if he would be willing to have a student replicate that piece for you. Ask if they could do it for extra credit or something. I mean, Hell, that's why they are taking those courses in the first place. Some instructors will only charge you for materials, which should be just a couple of clams (or whatever you use for money down there). He will need the extra unbroken side to get the correct measurements (thread type, ect.) It's worth a shot. If he says their course load is full or they don't have the time or whatever, you're only other option would be to find someone local that does machinery with a lathe and see if they can make you a new piece. Machine shops would cost your more than a new clamp would. As much as I love local shops, most these places are busy and need to focus on larger jobs, but it is still worth a shot if you want to ask around.
