Default Re: !HELP PLEASE! Question About Snare Drum Tension Rods

you measure from the shoulder to the end and not the head so you would be looking at 62mm so in that case the 58 should do it for a better selection go here.

and also there is a good chance that your threads inside your lug are damaged as well so you might need to chase out the threads with a tap or need a new insert or a whole new lug. any machine shop or Ace hard wear should be able to help with the tap. Its also a good idea to take the lug off and take the insert out to re-tap the threads. And also in the future it would be a good idea to put a small amount of grease or anti-cease on the threads to prevent this from happening.
