About our site

Hello Drummers,

I'd like to personally welcome you to TightScrew.com!

My name is Carl Scott. I'm a drummer and the creator of TightScrew non-loosening tension rods.

The purpose of this website is to acquaint you with our product and to provide some information on TightScrews.

In our FAQ section, we have answers to the most common questions we've received from drummers, dealers, and studio owners. TightScrews were created in 2004 as a result of many years of struggling with loosening drums on concert and club stages. Like many of you, I tried every product that I could find to keep my snare drum head tensioned song after song, show after show. Unfortunately, everything I tried had drawbacks or was ineffective. More wasted money!

Finally, I came up with a solution that I thought would make my drum tuning much more effective. We distributed some prototypes to some of my drummer friends, some jazz players, rock players, heavy hitters, soft hitters -- well you get the picture. Everyone loved the way their drums stayed in tune. We finally had a solution to share with the drumming and drum building community. Now, finally your de-tuning problems are over! You have my personal guarantee! Enjoy the site, and be sure to contact me with your comments or suggestions.
