Vintage Ludwig club date tension rods

Hi, I am wondering if there are any manufacturers that are currently making tension rods that are compatible with circa 1965 Ludwig "Club Date" model drums, specifically a 14 X 14 floor tom. These are longer rods that insert into a single "bow tie" style lug.


Hi, Bunny--

Sometimes these parts will show up on EBay. You just have to keep looking for new availability.

Another place you might try is drum forums. I saw a few entries about these rods and one person said he had them, but the post was a few years old.

You also might try this site:

They say that they have all Ludwig Vintage parts
for sale.

By the way, have you checked out our Almost Free Drum Tabs?
