Hi all, I have a Dm lite drum kit and I have a problem with one of my pads. Its started to stick after just one hit and the drum keeps beating as if its being tapped at a very high speed. The only way I can stop it is to gently lift the rim where the led light is. Any advice on this would be very well appreciated. Manu thanks in anticipation.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for posting. 

It's possible there may be some dust or debris between the pad and the rim that's causing the rim to stick. Have you tried spraying some compressed air between the rim and the pad? Does this make a difference at all? If not, please get in touch with our Technical Support team to help you out with this. Log on to www.alesis.com/support to get in touch with Technical Support. You can find their contact information on that page. 

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions.
