Dear all,

Is there any difference between the material (metal) used to manufacture the following lugs?
Are they all Cast-Steel?
Any brass in the composition of the lugs - save lug nuts?

  • BRL-100
  • STL-100
  • CL-100
  • TLT-100 (Vision series)


Is there any consequential difference to the quality of resonance and timbre of the drum between the models mentioned above, specifically CL-100 and TLT-100 (Vision series)?

Furthermore, do rubber gaskets - as a buffer between lug and shell - make a considerable difference - if any at all - to the characteristics of resonance and timbre of the drum as opposed to having the lug directly attached to the shell?

Hope the community can shed light on my queries.

Be safe during these difficult and trying times.


Best wishes.
