Drummers are always struggling to keep their drums in tune. Canopus’ Bolt Tight Washers are handy and very affordable items that you may find useful when gigging. These washers don’t replace the washer on your drum, but are designed to “sandwich” around it, with one Bolt Tight washer below and above your original washer, to help keep your drum from detuning.

Drummers are always struggling to keep their drums in tune. Canopus’ Bolt Tight Washers are handy and very affordable items that you may find useful when gigging. These washers don’t replace the washer on your drum, but are designed to “sandwich” around it, with one Bolt Tight washer below and above your original washer, to help keep your drum from detuning. These washers have a shiny black side and a duller gray side, and the black side faces towards the rim. These compress a bit when the drum is tuned, and appear apply some opposing force to help hold your drum in tune. On my drum, I didn’t notice it detune during this review. Note that if your drum’s tension rods barely reach the lug, you may need to use one Bolt Tight washer.

Bolt Washers also are designed to help enhance your drum’s tone. I was a little skeptical about their sonic effects before trying them, but I placed a set on a floor tom, and they did seem to help the drum sustain a little more. Nice!

Who wouldn't want to add tone to their drum? They work! I'm hearing tones I didn't think my drum could produce. More presence! And the fact that I don't have to constantly retune to keep my drums where I want them is more than a small benefit!

We use Canopus Bolt Tight on all our drums because they eliminate detentioning of the heads. Simple & highly effective.

Bolt Tight has opened up my snare drum SO much, it was a big surprise. I can't wait to try them on my toms!

Bolt Tight is one of my favorite Canopus products. It adds depth Eliot Zigmund
aand tone to my drums. Tuning is smoother and more accurate. Its also a great upgrade for vintage drums.

Eric White (SIR New York)

Bolt Tight washers are a brilliant addition to any drum. They create an almost hydraulic feel to the tension rods and make tuning the drums a pleasure. Bolt Tight = good stuff.

Uli Frost

If you like a solution for a great drum tuning, then use Canopus Bolt Tight.

Bolt Tight is a great product. We find it really keeps drums in tune whilst still allowing you to tension any bolt at any time

If you want the warmest sound for your snare, you got to get the Canopus Bolt Tight. For the most sensitivity, Bolt Tights are the one.
