    Its an old drum, 16” x 12”, wood hoops but they are not wide enough for the newer dw clip on spurs. Maybe some danmars will work, but not opposed to drilling the shell, it’s not that nice.

    Anyone got something vintage-y sitting around?

    Thanks

    What is the depth of the hoop? How much hoop do you need for the DW clamp on?
    Thanks,

    The hoops are 1 & 1/8th” thick, 1.5” total with the head collar. I bought a set of the new DWs, they’re real nice but tightened all the way down we’re a good 1/4” too wide still. I already returned them so don’t have exact measurements.

    Cowbell holders are a good idea Joe, though at $20 a pop I could get some new danmar clip ons for the same price, basically the same thing. I’m being extra cheap with this project for some reason, the drum itself was pretty inexpensive, just trying to keep it that way.

    How much are you looking to spend for two complete spurs?

    I have the same issue. I want to uses a 17" Ludwig tenor drum with calf heads. I acquired it from the local high school storage locker dump day. The wood hoop is about 1"deep. Does anyone have any insight on the DW Kickstand?

    Hopefully less than $40 :)

    DCP has some danmars on reverb that are currently 15% off, might just grab those if nothing shakes out in the next few days.
