I just got a Slingy Buddy spec kit with the double spur bass-drum mounts, but it came with only one pair of spurs. The original owner only used one pair, and lost the others. Does anybody make replacements? Thanks!

They're pretty common and cheap on ebay.
Of course...I just did a quick check and didn't see any listed. Usually they're pretty plentiful.

If you live the the USA just wait a day they will pop up because Slingerland spurs are so common that it's not even funny...

But try finding oaklawn Camco parts or Sonor teardrop floor tom legs... that's when the search gets crazy... as it could literally take years for those items to surface.

Ordered a set from him once. They were the harder to find thinner version from the early '60s. I was in a jam and could not find a vintage set, so I spent the money (!) on his. Money orders only, no credit cards, $15 for shipping. He swore they would work. When they arrived, they were too short. I had to pay the shipping back and a 20% restocking fee. Can't recommend him. And you have to kiss his butt through the whole process.

I just went to the hardware store and got a chrome rod, cut it to size, put some rubber feet on the ends.   $7, maybe.    Not original, but functional.

I have taken straight rod of the right diameter to a good machine shop and it is easy to have them put a good,  even point on the end of that rod  in a machine (not sure of name) that they all seem to have.  They may call is a lathe?

  Try Explorer's Percussion in Kansas City.  I believe they have them.
