Hey fellas.
Does anybody know off the top of your head the lug whole spacing of the various years of Slingerland lugs?
Beavertails vs. different sizes of Sound Kings?

I think they all match up. But I can't remember where I got that, maybe an old catalog that carried both series of lugs.

Hi DB!

Slingerland Sound King lugs, introduced in 1955, are... 2.25" for both the double-ended snare lug and bass drum lug. The small single lug, usually found on toms, is 1.5". I'm not familiar with the Beavertails, but I believed they used the same hole spacing.

The large late 50s tom Sound King lugs are 2.25.

Sorry, I was confused. Were there small and large beavertails?
Yes, there were small and large beavertail lugs. I just checked out the replica beavertails at Drumfactorydirect and saw that both the bass drum and snare lugs are 2-1/4", but the small tom lug is 1-17/32". Still, that's only 1/32" wider that the Sound King lugs at 1.5"...or 1-16/32". Hope this helps.

Yeah. I wonder if they'd just snuggly fit in the same holes?
