Yes, they made sure to mount the brackets too high, just like the vintage ones!cochlea said:Nice! I bet these would also be an improvement on the new Club Date line. I could be wrong but to me it seems like every photo of these new kits has the bass drum spurs angled inward, apparently from the brackets being mounted too high or the spurs not being long enough.
Hi Brian,FiddleStix said:I just ordered a set of the vintage bass drum spurs this morning. I had reached out to you folks at Inde last week to find out if they would fit my '75 Slingerland bass drum. Collectively, we weren't 100% sure until I saw this thread and the Slingerland bass. I will be posting some picture of the swap out once I receive them.
Yes, perfect fit, big improvement!Topsy Turvy said:Josh, do you know if these spurs will work on the new Ludwig Club Date series?
Yes, they are the same brackets as the tom mounts (except I reverse one so both wing nuts are on the top). They fit up to a 2" spread. Please let me know if they fit the Sonor drillings!xsabers said:Ok, I have to measure the hole spacing on my SONOR because I hate the stock spurs. They move with the slightest pressure and have to be set perfectly or the drum wobbles. Frustrating on a gig when time is a factor. Do these have the same mounting bolt spread as the tom mounts? I need two more tom mounts as well (already have 6; 3 on two kits). Thanks!
You wouldn't be able to rotate the clamp 90 degrees without modification- the hole pattern is not "square".FiddleStix said:Received my Inde Spurs today. They look and feel top notch. Trying some fitment ideas. as you can see, the original spur brackets are vertical. I can see how an additional hole is needed for a horizontal installation. I did notice that they could mount vertically using the existing holes on the bass drum, but the hardware that holds the spur would have to be rotated 90 degrees... not sure if this optimal for stability or sound, or doable at all.
