My nuts stopped coming loose once I switched from boxers to jockeys.
Given time, I find that once I’ve bonded with a piece of gear, I learn to love the way it looks. Exhibit A: the big, ugly “modern” Zildjian K stamp. Exhibit B would be moving forward a year from now and me looking to buy a Ludwig white marine pearl kit to match this snare....Like NobleCooleyNut, I also have a BB with a P-86 that has performed flawlessly since 2013. In fact, I had never heard of this problem with the nuts coming loose so I just retrieved my BB from its case and checked the P-86: all four screws are still factory tight; I couldn't budge them with an allen wrench.
Congrats on your new snare! Unlike you, I love Ludwig's current WMP wrap. I'd been waiting since the 1950s for them to stop using that "Sky White Pearl" that they used to call WMP. (Only took 'em a half-century.)
