Im using a pork pie snare and after every 15 minutes or so of playing, the tension rod closest to me is completely loosened. could it be the head thats on it? im using the stock remo head. please any comments. thanks

It could be uneven tension across the head or it could also be a bad insert.

had the same problem with my pork pie snare, get some PTFE (plubmers) tape wrap it once or twice around the lug
problem solved
drums - pacific LX
cymbals - saluda black mist, voodoo
pedals - axis, iron cobra

i had the same thing happen to one of my snares when i 1st started drumming...
if u dont have each lug tuned to the same tension...it could cause u to pull a rim and or will unevenly stretch the head causing tuning issues...

just losen all the lugs and then re tune ur drum...this video might help u out so this problem wont happen again in the future...

Either uneven tension, but usually that shows, with the wrinkles.

hm, thats weird. never heard of that. I would take the head off of the drum and tighten the nuts and bolts, maybe?
