  • Pearl Sessions Studio Classic

    I ordered this Session from Guitar Center along with a set of Evans heads. The swap went smooth until i got to the bass drum. Either the threads were miscut or they were cross threaded. Either way i could not get the tension rods finger tight. I went and got a rethreading kit and some white lithium grease to lubricare the repaired threads and fixed the them, or so i thought. I was able to tighten them down finger tight but now they seem to be backing out on their own. After playing one song all the claws a loose and the head shows wrinkles and has no tension. I'm not sure if i did something to the threads, or if my tuning is too low, or the room temp has to do with it. Is this a common problem with the Sessions?

    if you're tuning literally just above wrinkle, then it may just be the low tuning and you'll need some lug locks to solve your problem. Otherwise, there could be a problem with your lug inserts and/or tension rods.
