Vintage Ludwig Folding Spurs, Install New Rubber Feet


Platinum Member
Just a handy tip for installing new rubber feet on your vintage Ludwig folding bass drum spurs.

Acquire a replacement Ludwig rubber foot and a metal tension rod washer
Insert a metal tension rod washer inside of the new rubber foot.
Use a small screwdriver to assist in getting the washer to lay flat inside of the rubber foot.

Slide the foot over the vintage spur and press firmly until the point can be seen and felt through the rubber

The metal washer prevents the point of the spur from pushing all the way through the rubber foot. You wind up with a soft point to dig into your drum rug.
