I joined this group thing (in korea) and i play the drums there but the pedal is just wayyyyyyyyyyyyy too loose it just feels horrible. I was wondering what to do.. I dont know how to work with pedals. It's a normal tama pedal by the way that comes with a tama rockstar

Also the bass drum doesnt have anything inside it so should i put a pillow or something in there? (they all have stock heads btw)

Tighten the spring and put a pillow, blanket, or rolled up towel into the kick.

i know i should tighten the springs but i dont know how
and theres no hole in the reso head of the kick so i have to take it off and would that mess up the tuning cus other people use the kit too..

Then I would honestly suggest you not touch anything on that kit. Take your own pedal and swap it out.

My bad, I thought you had your own kit.

I'll get some pics and post up later. :)
