I have these spare parts, what is left out of a drum collection I have been helping to sell. I am slightly fed up with the whole process and was about to toss these in my metal/welding pile but have a nagging feeling that there may be something of value/needed here.

Can anyone help me identify anything here, give me some insight into my next move.

I think the three floor Tom legs are exceptionally nice. They feel 12mm, the chrome is in great shape and the knurling is the nicest I’ve ever seen.

Thanks.

Going left to right, items 1-3 look to be Gretsch floor tom legs from the 80's. Items 4-7 look to be Rogers Swivomatic - cymbal rod, 2 bass drum spurs and a cymbal arm. I have no idea what the last item is. Hope that helps.
Incredibly helpful. Thank you.

Where Black is the color, where None is the number
Those Gretsch legs usually go for less than the 60's knurled band ones, but are a PITA when you need them like I did - I think they're actually early 70's, around when Gretsch had the 4-hole rail mount, and tried using only an FT leg mount on the tom. The kit I had was de-wrapped SSB Moonglow, with all these traits.

Spurs look Roger-ey. I don't know enough about the bottom section of the cymbal L-arms to say anything definitive, but the long top section looks legit. Missing the tilter, though.

That last piece looks like something I might use to try and fish my keys out of a storm drain. It could well be drummy, but I haven't encountered it before.

Definitely Rogers hex-rods.

How long are the two shorter hex rods with the roll-pins going through the pointy end?

That will tell you what size bass drum they go with.

I may be interested in those four Rogers pieces.

Let me know how much you want for them, or if we could do a possible trade....
