Re: Salvaging a calf head for display

Re: 1920's Ludwig Pedal?

Mr. Toast, You are quite welcome for the pictures. I think double drumming by one person with the snare and bass drums close to each other, and using separate players for snare and bass drum was the...

Re: 1920's Ludwig Pedal?

Mr. Toast, I don't mind the rust as long as it is not spreading. I tend to leave the really old ones alone. I think the chrome plating was much stronger back in the day. They are worth whatever...

Re: 1920's Ludwig Pedal?

Re: Hi-hat clutch for a hexagonal rod??

I don't remember all of the details, but George Carlin did a wonderful comedy routine all about "stuff". I assume it is on YouTube or some tribute site. Unfortunately it is not comedy for a...

Re: Hi-hat clutch for a hexagonal rod??

Howdy, I think it is from a Slingerland Dynamo model high hat. I have seen it referred to as the Buddy Rich high hat. Sorry I don't know the model number off hand. Hope this helps, Joe

Unfortunately I don't know the maker and could not find any markings. Here is another one that has a known maker, a Frisco. I see the patent number on this but can't find it when doing a...

Re: This is the Display Your Vintage Bass Pedal Thread

Howdy, I love the discussions and am looking forward to the book on drum keys (whatever cranks your tractor). I don't have many old drums but do have some old pedals.

Here is one of my favorite...

Re: Copies of Articles from Ludwig Drummer?

David, Thank you so much. For some reason the later Ludwig Drummer magazines are hard to find. Maybe I should have kept mine! I have succumbed to the bass drum pedal collecting disease. It is fun...

Re: "Kicker" bass drum pedal board

Wow, it never occurred to me that we might cross over from bass drum pedal accumulation to alarmingly close to foot fetishism. That might be more socially acceptable than obsessing about drum gear...
