If it was used or old, or the tension rods got loose over time (a week...but even that is too much), then yea. But when the tension rods are coming loose completely during a 1 hour set, then there is an issue. Even my '96 Export Select holds it's tuning for over a week (longer, actually).
    I'm a Pearl guy...I still own the kits and snares in my sig...and use them...so I know Pearl makes good stuff. I'm just a tad disappointed with the CRB...I thought it was just my kit, but now I know that there is definitely something going on.

    Also...does anyone have the specs on the tension rods? for the 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 16, and kick. The snare seems to be okay-ish.

    sounds like the drums were made slightly undersized, and the heads hang over the edge a bit.

    I'm starting to think that the problem lies with the actual swivel nuts rather than the tension rods

    Do tell - what makes you think that? I'm still getting to the bottom of the same issue on my MMP.

    I had the same problem with my CBs. Wouldn't stay in tune for even a whole song. Sold them a while ago.

    Messed with one at a shop for a few minutes; struck me as cheap.

    Thank you for playing Pearl!

    Never got that PM.

    Echoing this post. Have had mine for a year and after 10 minutes lugs redo lugs are falling on the floor and batter lugs are finger lose. It is very frustrating. Love the sound and want to record with them. I am open to suggestions as well.

    People are saying that they aren't tuned high enough. Well I crank my 10" tom and it still comes loose pretty quickly. Not as fast as my floor toms, which I keep fairly loose, but still a lot faster then my other drum kits.

    Please Pearl - this seems to be a real problem for what seems to be a lot of people.

    Can you look into a solution? I love Pearl and though I'm not expecting Masterworks level of quality, I to at least want the drums to be in tune for longer periods of time.

    One of your reps in Scandinavia suggested the Pearl TNK-10N/10, but I don't wanna fork out +10€ for a pack of 10 (with my drumkit is 96 lugs), when this is something that shouldn't happen in the first place.

    Thank you :-)
