I've just bought a -68 Ludwig 13" tom, but miss 6 tension rods and suspect that the 6 rods that are on the tom aren't the right ones. What are the right measure for rods used on this tom?

my standards came with 1 7/8" rods on the 13.
they don't all have the same thread count though so matching the ones i had was a pain.

+1 on 1 7/8" measured from the shoulder to the tip.

Yup, that's them. Correct heads on the rods as well as the correct "tombstone" and rise above the shoulder. Geez, I can't believe what a drum dork I've turned into. :oops:
