This is for the faithful drummer-readers of the Refuge (uh, both of you), particularly those of the electronic kit persuasion. For years I’ve had difficulty keeping my electronic hi-hat pedals in one spot. They always seem to skate around the kit carpet no matter what I do. I’ve extended the steel spurs as far as they go. I’ve tried Velcro. The whole “tie a cord around it and attach it to the drum throne” approach is unappealing and presents positioning limitations. Nothing really worked except placing a several-pound block of steel in front of it.
Well, I came across the perfect solution. It’s called number 085 Carpet Anchor. It’s like the hook part of Velcro on steroids. It comes in a strip about an inch wide and features rows of plastic teeth with little T-shaped ends. Cut a couple of strips 6 inches long, glue them to the bottom of the pedal, place on the carpet, and bingo, sticks like glue. Unlike glue, you can rip them up and reposition them with little effort. Brilliant stuff. I highly recommend it. I found a number of places selling it on the inter-tubes but you may have to look around to find it sold by the foot.
