    Default Tension Rod Size for 1982 Pearl Export?

    I have a 1982 Pearl Export that I've been refurbishing. I rewrapped it and as I was getting everything put together, I decided I should get some new tension rods for it while I was at it. However, I think I have a number of non-original ones mixed in with the originals and never noticed before since I haven't had everything off and sitting in a pile before.

    Anyone know what size tension rods should be on the toms?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just picked up a 1985 Export kit a few weeks ago. I know the lugs are the same, so I would assume the tension rods would be the same as well. For what it 's worth, the tension rods for my rack and floor toms are all the same length: 1.75", measuring from the underside of the collar (that contacts the washer and hoop) to the end. Hope that helps!

    47mm tension rods are T061L/6 generically used on late 90's to mid 2000 export toms.
