Morning guys! I just scored a 1920s Ludwig 2pc 4x14 Dance Model but the rods are not original. Does anyone know off hand The size/thread for these tension rods? I'd like to restore it and need to find a dozen of em! Thanks so much!

I've got a couple of Ludwig snares from that era and modern tension rods fit just fine. Are you looking for rods from that era? What length, and are they nickel plated rather than chrome?

ARGuy,

Hi! I was just curious about the length of the rods for the 4x14 and thought it would be cool to have era appropriate lugs, yessir!
