    Hi,

    Part of the reason that the tensions rods might not be straight is because there are no gaskets underneath the lugs.

    I finally received the originally-ordered tension rods very late last year, in time to assemble the drum and take some new happy snaps.

    Turns out they are not the right size i.e. the length doesn't match. But I ordered enough to do the whole drum and they do work fine.

    I rushed these photos unfortunately but they are better than the ones I had. So here goes in case anyone is interested.

    +1. i especially like the many gold inserts here and there.it mix great with the throw off system without getting intrusive visually.

    as for the bent tension rods ,i've learned the hard way alomg the years; when i park a snare drum for some time, i automatically unscrew the TR's ,so no tension on the lugs and rods. you don't need a tuned snare drum when it,s off duty anyways.
