What size rods are needed for bass drum spurs on 69 Ludwig standard?

Confirmed. Any 9.5mm rod will do; you can throw some vintage-style floor tom feet on the ends.

I'm going with a sturdier Gibraltar version on my rebuild, personally. I find the stock Standard spurs too light-duty.


Thanks guys. I had bought a pair of gibraltar spurs with the same intention. I want to try it with the original spurs and an anchor on the front. My bass drum pedal also has spikes on it so hopefully that will help as well. I'd rather not have to drill new holes.
