I only know about Ludwig ones, but they were brass before the Blue/Olive badge era and then were aluminum for a time. So yes, I think knowing those things might help somebody come up with just the right ones. And the installing tool...

Precision Drum has the 7/16" for the Slingerland three ply.

Drum maker sells the 3/8" long ones for the thicker shells

My old Kentucky drums on ebay will fix you up. Bill is not of 100% health but will get the grommets to you be patient and they will arrive.

Cheers!
