I got these in a box of mostly Tama drum parts.  At first I figured something in the Granstar era.  But they don't match up to anything I ran across.  Granstars are round too.  

 

6 sided - 5 mm wide on each side - approx 9 mm across - 17" tall - steel or nickel - 3 circumferential design cuts at the top - no knurling.  Fairly hefty such that they don't seem cheap.  One would think it's more costly to make this style vs. round ones.  Never seen square/hex before.

Thanks Nopork.  That's one name I wouldn't have thought of trying.    Googled it and this set on Reverb popped right up.

And this set listed right here.   Small world.

Rogers are 6 sided. I regularly broke keys when I played my Memorilocs, the leg mounting bracket ate them up.

Sorry.  The eye sight just isn't what it used to be....lol.   I checked them twice yesterday and I "thought" they had 5 sides.  So much for close up vision.  

 

Just checked again, real close up.....they are definitely hex.   My bad for stating 5 sided.    So they are probably Swivomatic era Rogers.   Thanks for the help.   Went back and edited out the "5" sided to avoid further confusion for those reading this thread today.

"Raise the price

 

I got the floor tom legs in this misc lot and was more interested in the Tama hi hat and snare stand items and the 3 pinstripes which I could immediately use.   $67 delivered.   I figured the floor tom legs at $10-$15/set whatever they might be.  Didn't expect them to be the best item in this lot.  Tossed an old C cell battery in the metronome and it fired right up....looks like something from the 90's or 80's.   I was actually surprised there was nothing wrong with the snare stand...works perfectly...no obvious rust.   So this adventure will turn out fine.

A friend of mine ran across this today.  $45.   Appears Ludwig - no information from seller on this photo other than a wrapped snare drum 'from the 70's.'  Almost looks like a Ludwig 14x10 or 14x12 marching drum from 70's or 80's.   Hard to tell depth from the one photo.   But the super-sensitive hardware and top muffler would suggest more of a kit/concert snare drum.   I told my friend it looks to have no downside...and plenty of potential upside.   10 lug snare drum with that hardware?  What's to lose?

Rogers, I concur. They look just like the ones on my floor tom.

That's not a Ludwig.  Those are knockoff Ludwig lugs and a 14-inch tom from the '70s would have six lugs, not ten.  A field drum might have eight but they'd be minis.  That's not a Ludwig muffler and that's not a super sensitive mechanism.

 

However! If you're not concerned with it being an actual Ludwig there's probably no downside at that price.  Just another drum for the collection in the end.
