"Drumming" is what male T's do to entice a female. Does the spider look like it has little boxing gloves on its pedipalps? If the pedipalps look different from your other T's then is a male.

If it is a mature male : Take it back ! It'll only live a year at most. One more moult and you have a 90% chance it's a gonner... Take it back.
