    Default Looking at new hoops and lugs for my Black Beauty

    I have the traditional triple flange hoops and classic lugs.

    I'm actually looking at getting brass hoops and lugs....do these have to be Ludwig hoops and lugs or can they be any kind as long as they fit?

    Any brand of hoops will fit, as long as the lug count is the same. As far as the actual lugs, I have no idea what the bolt center are. I know the Ludwig “classic” lugs (And every other Ludwig lug I’ve seen) has bolt centers unique to them.

    That's what I was thinking....I'm not sure if it's possible to switch out the Imperial lugs for the tube lugs based on how they line up. Might either have to ask Ludwig or one of their dealers.

    That looks amazing......as long as the tube lug holes and the imperial lug holes are the same... we'll be in business.

    The ones I got are the same as my Black Magic 3 1/2" or 88mm 88mm is a hair shorter than 3 1/2" I believe! lol. I think the Black beauty Imperial lug holes are shorter though. Just order shorter ones! lol.
