Spurs

Yes! In the 1978-80 catalog when they introduced the 16 deep bass drums, those bass drums came with two pairs of their 1/2' curved spurs. All the literature that came out with Buddy Rich (who became an endorser - again - at the time) pictured his 16x24 bass drum with four spurs.

I believe when Neil Peart became a Ludwig artist, he had to eliminate the inside spurs because you couldn't get the bass drums closer together with them on.

I have a mid-80s Ludwig 26x16 bass drum with holes for four spurs, but only two spurs remaining.
