Default What to do with these lugs?

I have 20 of these old Tama piccolo lugs that I was intending to make a snare drum with, but since they are single point lugs, I never used them.

They've been sitting in a bag for about 15-20 years.

Should I make a snare drum with single points?

Should I build one tom with them and sell the extras?

Or should I just sell them off and use the cash for proper snare drum lugs?

They would probably be needed by someone as replacement lugs, but I'm not sure if I could sell all of them off to people who would need these obscure replacement lugs.

I'd sell them. Don't like single point single ended lugs on snare.

I'd go ahead and use them on a snare myself.

I have actually been looking for some single point lugs. PM sent.

100% agree with Oriollo; I've build snares with single-points, and would not recommend it. An engineering fail, IMO, unless your using them in a very low tension application.

i have a Tama piccolo with those exact same lugs and the outer distortions press ALL around the outside, leaving dented impressions that cave inward

i also have a Yamaha Stage Custom Advantage tom with the same problem, while using even LESS tension

either keep them for an electronic drum trigger, or sell them and put the funds toward the cost of new lugs... definitely not a great design idea

The bottom of these things are open ended, so I imagine I could thread a rod to make them normal tube style lugs right?

that's actually a pretty good idea, if you can figure a way to keep them in place, but the drum still tunable

maybe run longer tension bolts and have them thread into some kind of stopping block

on my piccolo, they're offset and the shell is much too short to try such a thing, but that wouldn't matter with a deeper shell
