Default Odd question: Bass drum spur/feet size

Hey everyone. This is a bit of an odd-ball question. I picked up this Premier kit and it only has one of the little rubber feet that goes on the end of the bass drum leg/spur. I need to buy another one, but I am trying to find out the thread pitch of some different brand's feet. From what I can gather, the Premier kit uses a 3/8-16 threading on the spur. My Gretsch Catalina and my Tama Rockstar both use this same threading on their spurs/feet. I am beginning to think this is a pretty standard thread for the industry, but does a company like DW subscribe to this industry standard? Pearl probably created the industry standard, so I only assume their feet would work on this kit.

Could anyone out there please take a look at your bass drum feet and try a quick swap with a second (different brand) kit to see if they match.

I know this is an odd request, but I don't want to buy these silly little feet only to find out they don't thread properly. They would basically become garbage at that point.

Thanks everyone.

So no one on DW has 2 kits from 2 different brands to test this out on? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Tommy D., it is a metric thread and it is an eastern cut thread. The other type is a European cut thread. Vary close but the thread pitch is just a little different.

So DW uses a different threading than everyone else. I figured that was the case. Looks like I should stick to buying Pearl feet or some other brand who uses a more mass produced threading.
