Re: This is the Display Your Vintage Bass Pedal Thread

SAZ and John, Thanks so much. It turns out I had a copy of that patent but had not looked at it in a while (or carefully). I have a couple of the old Ludwig pedals with that half bracket but could...

Re: This is the Display Your Vintage Bass Pedal Thread

SAZ, Thanks so much for the photos and information. I agree that the old time drummers must have had some very fast feet to work these things. I also saw some similar mechanisms on Tim Northrup's...

Re: DIY Wood Blocks

I agree with your description of not finding good sounding woodblocks. The best ones I have found are very old (1920's?) Chinese mahogany wood blocks. Some are marked "CHINA" in capital block...

Re: Is Sabian Serious with this new logo?

Re: Desperately seeking Low Boy!

Congratulations on finding a real low boy. That is quite an accomplishment. Did it include the cupped cymbals? I have found small Chinese cymbals from Steve Weiss Music an excellent substitute. I...

Re: Purdie and The Beatles

I think you mean Andy White. I had the pleasure of studying Scottish pipe band drumming with him several years ago. If I understood correctly, he immigrated to New Jersey and finally became a U.S....

Re: L&S Bass Drum Pedal

It is a beautiful pedal and cleaned up very nice. I am fascinated by the design with a center post for the spring mechanism. That makes for a very large aluminum casting. Thanks Myron, for passing...

Re: L&S Bass Drum Pedal

NoPork,

That is a wonderful price and I will certainly take it. It must be user error on my part but I don't see any private messages. My folder is empty. Sorry about that. Thanks, Joe

Re: Head choice

Re: Desperately seeking Low Boy!

Re: Salvaging a calf head for display

What a great job. When you put that much weight on a glue project, you have its undivided attention! I wonder what happened to Maple Leaf Orchestra number one?

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??

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
