Default 1 and 1/4 inch lugs??

I bought a Sonor Select Maple 16 tom shell off eBay, stripped of all lugs etc for cheap. I thought I could get Sonor lugs easily from an older kit or on eBay but they changed the lugs on newer Select Force to holes with 1 - 1/4 inch space (most Sonor lugs ....and many other drum lugs are either 1 3/8 or 1-1/2 inch hole spaced).

I checked DrumFactory ...no lugs of any kind with 1 1/4 inch!
Anybody know a good supply of 1 -1/4 Sonor lugs outside of Sonor (which will be pricey)
....Or any other lugs supplier than DrumFactory?

If you can't find anything local, this guy can get whatever you need, but the shipping is murder.

Maybe you can find these used?

Sorry! Back on target: lugs, not tension rods.

Not cheap, but Corder will custom build tube lugs to your spec.

thanks gents. damn, these lugs are pricier than i expected. a set of 16 would be over $180, 3 times more than i paid for the shell! i guess hardware adds up on a drum.
also didn't know ludwig classics were 1-1/4 or 32 mm.

That certainly sheds some light on the higher cost of boutique drums that use the Corder lugs.

Not being a Sonor guy, what would the lugs run you ballpark from Germany?
