Default Vistalite Lug Gasket question

I've been trying to find an answer to this via the search, but must not be doing it right...anyway...

I recently acquired a nice 14" blue Vistalite Concert Tom shell for a reasonable price, and decided to bring it back to life. (This may lead to a Life Saver collection of Vistalite concert toms. Or not.)

I've got the right small Classic lugs, and all the pictures I can find show them with a gasket on a Vistalite shell. But I can't tell what they're made of, and if they're always cut to the same size as the lug, or just to hide the internal spring.

I figure I can make a pattern and cut some once I know these answers, but, as usual, knowing is half the battle....

Cool Re: Vistalite Lug Gasket question



You can buy them at Drums on Sale quite cheap...They are actually a little larger than the lug itself...

Here is the link...Just scroll down a little and you will find gaskets for mini and large classic lugs...It`s probably the mini lug gasket you need since it is a concert tom...

Just double check to be sure. My Vistalite concert tom has large lugs.

Interesting!! All my stainless concert toms have the mini lugs...

OP, yes, double check the lugs...The link I provided shows both types anyways...
