Hey all. Been a while but back in the vintage game and currently restoring a Ludwig ruby red strata snare. It's missing 4 tension rods (2 inch) so I'm looking to get replacements. I see some (originals) on eBay but pretty $$. Maybe I'd go that route but anyone know where else to buy or similar looking repo's I could buy cheaper? Thanks.

The ones available on drumfactorydirect are pretty decent as far as plating and are somewhat similar to Ludwig ones as on your drum. It is nice to say 100$ correct, but if you dont mind replacements are less costly. Im currently looking for 4 rods for a snare drum also, a late 40's WFL....I know the value of vintage parts as such, which is why I have offered up about $6/rod.
