Default Grommets - slingerland 3-ply shells

Would anybody happen to know the size of the factory-issued grommets used on Slingerland's 3-ply shells from the late '60s - early '70s? Also, if you happen to have a source where I could purchase some replacements, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance for your time and your help!

Looks like you can get them from Precision Drum Company:

And Chicago Drum:

Mark: I believe the ones on Precision Drum's site are what I need, which are 7/16" diameter. However, I'm not sure whether I need them in 3/8" length or 1/2" length. Any suggestion? Thanks!

You'll need the 3/8" length for 3-ply shells.

Sorry about that, I’m a Ludwig guy but I think this seller has grommets for other manufacturers drums although, I did not see on for Slingerland.

I would get them from Chicago drum company. Jim's dad was the man who created the 5 ply slingerland shells.
