They’re just old. For some reason, after 20-25 years, these Premier die-cast lugs will start to break. I could have gone with any of the whole bunch of other die-cast options out there, but I wanted solid metal. I wanted gold, so solid brass was a natural (expensive) fit.
The ones I got from Champagne I had custom to 1-inch center-to-center spacing; Champagne is all custom. I remember being nervous measuring again after the fact that the holes on my snare were slightly less than that, but it worked just fine; there’s some play.
