Default First Drum Build Questions

Hi all.. i'm not sure this is the right section to post this but here goes..

I'm planning on building a kit:

Kick: 20 x 20
floor: 14 x 14
tom: 7 x 12

but i have a lot of questions i need answered.

for starters..How far away should a lug be from the bearing edge?

and, what size tension rods for said drum sizes?

sorry for the dumb questions..thanks for any help.

It all explains itself once you get the parts.

What parts to get? Talk to the supplier. Hopefully your buying from a knowledgeable dealer, they'll sell you exactly what you need to make it work.

It really doesn't matter how deep you mount the lug, after the minimum of course. As an example: Ludwig uses the same lug on its 5.5" Supraphonic as it does on the 6.5", its even mounted in the same position. Difference- one has longer tension rods.

What's the minimum? Once you get the parts, do a mock-up, it reveals itself.
