Default Lugs for PDP X7??

Hi there, im looking to change the lugs on my kit, as the originals are quite frankly bog awful :/ kinda childish...so i was wondering will any lugs fit the kit, is there a standerd gap between each hole that the lugs fit into? im looking for something a bit more retro looking, so any ideas guys?? i like the look of the bass lugs that have the torque key attached at the end, im think something like these... im also looking to changing the wrap on the drums, so ill post up what they look like! :D

Cheers Tom

You'll need to check your hole spacing (center to center). Companies do use different spacings for various lugs, so you'll NEED to check before you buy.

Then, just find a lug you like with the same hole pattern. Hole spacing is always listed with the lug on supplier sites.

The one you pictured look cool. There are a few cool lugs out there.

Have fun!

Since that is the only lug that fits the spacing (which seems strange), I'd just keep what you have.
I went through the same exact thing when I started out with a lower line kit.

I won't bore you with a story, so I'll just say save your money (and effort).
It's best to just keep the lugs you have on the kit and when you are ready to invest in a higher level kit, get something you really like.

When you're ready to sell it, the PDP will have original equipment on it and you won't have any problems. Plus, the PDP tom mounts wouldn't fit that round lug anyway.
