ah! i broke my dads friends snare drum and if i dont fix it im gunna get rammed!

It's an older drum. The snares are held by a string that goes in a loop and is hold really tight by a metal thing. HOW TO FIX!?!?! i have no clue only one side is off. The side opposite of the one that controls whether they're on or off.

image?

brand and any info of the snare drum?

I use e-drums mostly but its quite simple to look out an acoustic is put together and fix it IMO...

see this video for an idea on how things go together on the snare...

You could just leave it where it was and let him assume HE broke it

I really got the wrong idea for help! I'm gunna get rammed!

but apparently it wasn't just me....

And as for the drum, pics in this situation are a necessity seeing as how its not described the best :P
#13
i believe what i mean is that the snare strings are broke. do i need a whole new string? is there anything else i can use instead? could i loosen out a little more string and still use the same string?

Oh and the whole set is a 1989 Pearl Export Series. so im guessing a 1989 Pearl snare drum?

Okay you should see probably two screws going into a metal apparatus coming out of the side of the drum, (This is the side opposite the throwoff, the latch you described.) You'll need to loosen these screws and feed each end of the string down in between the metal pieces of the apparatus. If you have any mechanical inclination at all it should be fairly self-explanatory. Though honestly I don't think the drummer will be mad at all, those strings break all the time, and if he knows what he's doing he'll have no problem fixing it. If your dad gets pissed off at you tell him to **** off because those things are super easy to fix and when the string breaks its usually a piece of **** and bound to break anyways. Hopefully I was of some help.

Woot smart man. Break a drum so you go post in the most unless forum on a guitar website.

well mabey you should just stop being worthless and go buy your dad a replacement set of heads like some nice remo pinstripes. even if he is mad when it first happens if you took some action after you did it he might not be as mad.
#18
If the snare strings broke yes you will need a new string, unless it was a really long string and whats left is long enough. Sometimes you can use heavy duty fishing line or a thin shoe lace but your best bet is to try to find another string.
#20
how long does the string have to be? or could i just tighten something to compensate if it's too long?

oh and Callicut knows what im talking about. I salute you, sir

and i didn't break one of the snare wires. just the strings that hold it tightly so that the snares are on or off.

That's **** luck. That's happened to me before, this is what you need http://www.gibraltarhardware.com/index.cfm?fa=partsmain&curcat=2&bnd=11&cid=102&sid=452&pid=1519. Although I fixed it, the drum never sounded the same

Edit: Sorry, I though you meant something else. If you've just snapped one of the strings on the snare you shouldn't worry much, just cut it off. He will most likely not be able to tell the difference.

EDIT2: I'm seriously ****ing confused, we need a picture.

you cant replace a single string in the set of wires...they are welded at each bracket on the sides...


didn't break a wire man. just one of the strings that are part of the strainer. but on the side without the strainer. the strings that hold the wires.

Okay let me explain this totally step by step and you will know yourself if the string is long enough.
1. Flip the drum upside down and look at the side of the shell opposite the throwoff ( the latch that turns the snares on and off).
2. You will find a flat thin piece of metal protruding from the shell. There will be two screws in this piece of metal feeding into another small piece of metal behind it.
3. Look at the snare wires at the end there will be two holes that the string feeds through. The string then goes through an opening in the rim down towards the apparatus previously described.
The string must be long enough to feed through that opening in the rim down through the two pieces of metal held with the screws.
Tell me if you understand then we can go from there.
#28
Ah ****. But you do know how to fix it correct? I mean its really not that hard. Seriously whoever it is will probably laugh it off and just be happy you even tried to fix it. It really isn't a serious matter. Good Luck bud.

No problem man. I'm actually a drummer, I just like these forums because you don't necessarily have to talk about guitar, and its the only musically oriented place with instant response and a wide range of topics. Hopefully you'll be fine though, like I said its not a big deal.
