Aug 13, 2009 - Flat Jacks History
I was searching Ebay one day and came across this great 1961 Flat Jacks catalog sheet.

I have never seen one before and thought since Flat Jacks come up on the forum I would create a dedication page for the drums.

I decided to find the original patent which is also from 1961. I have not searched the forum yet for photos of the drums and more history yet. I know there is a Flat Jack experts around here some where.

I think there is a member also that knew him and has one of the proto-type kits. Maybe just a dream but a memory for sure.

So in honor of Ralph C Kester Jr.

The Flat Jacks

I'm always open for article and history, so send any Flat Jacks history for the page. I know I have a magazine ad somewhere on the main web site. I believe it was in the Downbeat magazine section.
