  • Swivel nut for bass lug

    I have a 70 or 71 Pearl kit that I restored. One of the swivel nuts is broke. Does anyone know if this is the correct Part?

    Those look like the swivel nuts for toms and snares. Bass drum swivel nuts are longer to fit the larger lug. Do you just need one? I'm petty sure I have some in my parts bin. Send me a PM with your info and I'll be happy to mail one to you.

    Ps. broken, not broke.

      I'd take up that offer, if the nut is the older style.
      Your lugs keep the nut in place by a spring.
      So they need a small lip at the back end of the nut to hold one end of the spring in the right position.

      The nuts you linked are for the more modern lugs, where the nut is held in place with a plastic tab...

        Yeah, after I posted I realized the bit to hold the spring wasn't there.

        I had put the drum back together thinking the t-rod might be able to reach what was left of the threaded piece but apparently it's a little short.

        Quick, let me know if that's what you have and I will definitely take you up on the offer.

        3P, so I take it no one makes these swivel nuts?

          Sorry guys, the nuts I have are not the spring type. I based my response on the picture from Lonestsar.

            Cool, your pics tell me your bass drum has C-050 type lugs, which started to be made in the 60's and were replaced by the standard Coffin lug later on.

            Days gone by, lots of companies made inserts for lugs with springs
            To buy new nowadays though, it's got to the point where there have become limited options.

            A couple of options that come to mind,
            Jammin Sam do a replacement lug called Asian Classic style:
            http://www.jamminsam.com/lugs/
            Get one, pull the insert out, throw the rest away. The insert should be a direct drop in replacement.
            Before you buy though, make sure that these replacement lugs are spring type.

            Cannon branded replacements are also available:
            https://www.interstatemusic.com/3442...12-UP632A.aspx
            The lug casing is no where near as thick as the original Pearl one, but you're only after the inserts.

            The other option is to search high and low for used.
            E-bay, CL, whatever.
            Don't know where you live, but Whatever might include stores that specialise in vintage drums or drum repairs.
            These places usually have a tub full of parts/old lugs etc, you can get an insert from...
