when attach my bass drum pedal to the hoop, it seems that if i dont tighten it enough it'll move when I really get going on the 16th notes, but if its too tight the teeth of the pedal will bight into the hoop. its a full birch hoop, so i cant expect it not the leave a small indent, and it is on a rug too.

so how do i prevent the teeth of the pedal leaving marks into the hoop?

You could always put a thin piece of cardboard between the hoop and the pedal clamp - this wont affect the pedal, but will simply put some distance between the hoop and clamp, hopefully eliminating the teeth marks.

No don't clamp it bare on the hoop, it will damage it!

you can get hoop protecters that stop this from occuring, what it is is a little patch of like grip tape that sticks onto the hoop that stops the clamp leaving marks they are dirt cheap from any drum store
