Ludwig Claws
 
So I have been slowly collecting claws for the Super Classics I'm restoring. This kit is getting lots of time to because of what I went through to get it.

I have 20 claws and was going to start hunting for T rods.


I just realized that 9 of my claws have short necks and the rest have long necks.

T rods won't have the needed clearance with the short ones. So I thought I'd see if anyone wanted to trade for them.

Zeta - If you want to use your bass drum while you're waiting for the correct claws, use short lengths of aluminum tubing over the tension rod to make up for the short barrel on the claws.

Find tubing that will slide over the tension rod then cut and place small sections of tubing between the claw and the T-rod to allow tuning. Cheap, easy fix. You'll get to use your bass drum while you wait for the claws to show up.

Purdie,

Thank you! I hadn't thought of that, I will be able to keep moving forward with this project much easier this way!

Hey man, at least you'll be able to set-up and play your bass drum until you find some vintage claws. Glad you found it helpful...

Blair - I've done the same thing with small washers too! Just gang up as many as you need on the T-rod so it clears the hoop when being turned. Doesn't look too bad either. Unless you're looking at minute detail, nobody even knows they are there. Works too!
