How to: Repair/attach rubber foot on Remo percussion products

Though your Remo drum may still be performing well, the rubber feet affixed at the base may have worn down over extensive time and use, and possibly even broke off-especially if leaned on or tilted while playing.  For this reason, we've developed a repair kit to bring your drum back to its full potential for years to come. For use on all drum shells with 5/16" thickness-including: Tubanos, Bahia Bass drums, Ngomas etc.

1. Clean the area using a paper towel with “Rubbing Alcohol”. If you are repairing a drum, peel the broken rubber foot off of the drum shell as much as possible so that the new replacement foot fits easily onto the cleaned location.

2. Prepare the rubber foot by cleaning inside the slot with rubbing alcohol before adding glue.

3. Using a Super Glue that contains “Cyanoacrylate”, squeeze a 4” line of glue on edge of drum shell. Now add glue on both inside walls of the rubber foot slot about a ¼” down from the top.

4. Place the glue-filled foot on the edge of drum shell pressing down onto the shell. With both hands, lightly squeeze the sides for 30 seconds making sure you’re getting contact between the shell and foot.  Allow to cure for 5 minutes.

5. Optional: In the front indentations on the rubber foot, drill a 3/32” diameter hole through the shell. Make sure not to drill completely through to inner portion of foot. Using a phillips screwdriver, screw in the provided screws in each hole. Tighten the screws
in the foot through the shell until the screw heads are flush with the rubber.
