Default I need some 50's bass drum tension rods & claws

Anyone have any of these?
They're Gretsch faucet-style tention rods with claws - 50's era.....they're on my 1961 20" bass drum (well half of them are #@&*!).

Precision Drum should have the claws.

Thanks guys - good contacts, but nothing yet. There are some that are close and I may end up buying some of those if I can't find the exact ones I'm looking for.

Cheers,

Gary

I need not look further - I just found these on eBay and bought them right away.

Just for future reference, the company that is making all of the acrylic shell drums has a broad variety of claws. THeir name escapes me at the moment.
