  • Another Eliminator problem...

    So for the past few weeks, my Eliminator 2002B has been weird. The Allen screws that secure the beater holder have been loosening, and when they loosen up, it causes play in the pedal. I've usually been tightening it up every couple of weeks, but last night, I tightened it up before my band's set, and by the end of the set, the pedal had a ton of play, and I had to use my friend's pedal for the last song of our set.

    I'm not sure what's going on or how to fix it long-term, but I've had a ton of problems with my so I'm really thinking that I should sell them and get something else. Anyone have any ideas on what to do?

      Is this the Allen screw your referring to? The beater holder that tightens down onto the shaft via the Allen screw?...As stated above.. Try some lock tight. If that doesn't work, a simple replacement of the beater holder or Allen screw would be a cheap and easy fix. Their not expensive and will prolly take 10 mins. To replace. I'd surly try that before I bought a whole new pedal... Unless your just wanting a new one. If you do buy new, fix this one for $3-$10 bucks and keep for a spare... Just my 2 cents.

        Borrow a little of GF/wife nail polish, put some on the threads of the fastener & reinstall, wait a little while for it to set up and then have at it. Cost almost free unless she catches you fooling around with her polish, lol.
