"I've been using TightScrew tension rods on my titanium
snare ... and they have been very effective in keeping
my drum in tune night after night. With TightScrew I've
been able to tune my snare and 'set it, and forget it.'
The drum holds its tuning every time I pull it out of
Since I began
touring, I’ve had constant trouble maintaining a
consistent, balanced tension across my snare
head for the duration of the show. Midway
through a performance, I'd be tightening the
snare tension rods - which would have slipped
significantly out of tune. We tried so many of
the products aimed at locking in tension rods
and experienced disappointing results - before
discovering Tight Screw. Tight Screw now gives
me the opportunity to concentrate on playing and
not have to fuss with tuning in between songs -
what a relief. Just simply replace your existing
tension rods with the Tight Screw tension rods
and BOOM; problems solved.

" I've been using the Tight Screw for several weeks now
with LeAnn Rimes. We're playing football stadiums on the
Kenny Chesney "Poets And Pirates" Tour, and I don't
think I've ever played harder in my life! The Tight
Screws have given me a consistent snare sound from start
to finish in our show, and I would highly recommend them
to anyone! Thanks!"

"I have been using the same TightScrews on my main
touring snare for 6 months or longer. I change heads
every show, and so have really put the product through
its paces. I count on TightScrews to get me through my
shows knowing that my snare sound is going to stay the
same from beginning to end. TightScrews are truly
"I've been using TightScrews for over a year now
and must say these things are a must have for
any gigging or active drummer. Your lugs never
loosen and your drums stay in perfect tuning. I
haven't had to tune my drums until I put new
heads on and the screws still continue to be
just as reliable as new!"

"A premium tension rod that keeps your drum sound
Autumn to Ashes
"These things are amazing. I recently fitted my entire
kit with the TightScrews and I'm in awe. Prior to
putting them on I would change my heads a few times a
week while on tour. I can honestly say TightScrews have
TRIPLED my drum head life. I can tune my drums up, play
a full force set and they are exactly as they were
before we started. When I pull them out of the cases in
the next city/show... they are exactly as I left them.
If you're a hard hitting player (or even if you're not)
you need these things"
Charlie Daniels Band
"I've been playing for decades and like most of us, have
always had trouble with lugs loosening during shows.
I've tried every little gadget made to solve the problem
and some worked better than others but they weren't
EXACTLY the ideal solution.....the search is over!
TightScrews are a godsend! They're simple, easy to use
and best of all, they WORK. Plain and simple. No muss,
no fuss. Just put 'em on, tune up and forget about 'em!
Detuning is now a thing of the past. I'm amazed it's
taken this long for someone to find the answer.
TightScrews are IT. Get some now!"

"The greatest little 'twist' since the Rubik's cube! I
swear by this product. I put them on my new set of
Pearl's, fined tuned them, and they have never de-tuned.
My hat is off to my buddy Carl. I've tried everything to
solve the detuning problem, so I'm glad I dug a little
deeper to find TightScrew. Go ahead and crank some onto
your drums, you too will be a believer! Another
satisfied customer, you're next!"
Jeff Healey, Amanda Marshall
"One of my favorite snare drums has a wood hoop on it &
the rods always loosen up on it. Last night I beat the
s.... out of it with the TightScrews on & kept its
tuning the whole night, very impressed! Fully happening
in a big way! TightScrew is truly an amazing product.
They help you stay in tune with no loosening whatsoever,
a must have for any drummer."
Al Webster on Myspace
A typical performance for me will be several, hard
hitting one hour sets with little to no stopping.
Frequently I would hope for a moment to re-tune only to
drop the drum key on the floor as the next song was
taking off and my snare sound would change throughout
the set. I’ve tried other, more complicated and
expensive gadgets. That was the past! Now I am
subscriber to the tightscrew methodology. No more
tension rods on the rug at the end of a gig. My soundman
and I have one less challenge to overcome. I even use
them on my kick drum and the low tuning stays put with
no wrinkles. If there was ever to be applied tightscrew
magic to throwoff tensioners, the world would be even
closer to perfect. Kudos
