Default Re: replacement tension rods for "Majestic" brand floor tom

Your best bet is to just replace the threaded inserts inside the lugs with modern ones so they can accept modern (and readily available) tension rods. Most of the MIJ stuff I run into will accept a new, modern threaded insert with no problems. It's much easier to do this than scouring around trying to find odd thread tension rods. Lug inserts and tension rods are inexpensive as well. It may not be "all original" but I think this, at worst, is a very minor offense. Besides, what good is a drum if you can't even mount a head on it?
