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 two parties can agree on. I started collecting pedals innocently enough when I realized I could now afford all of those "super cool" pedals from the 60's and 70's that I could not afford in my mis-spent youth. If you get some really old ones, you can deal with termites and dry rot rather than rust! Joe

Thanks for the cool pics Joe. What did they do before the first pedal? Just KICK it?

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 main technique before the first bass drum pedals. The first bass drum pedal I have found is by Englishman Cornelius Ward for the Richardson Rock Band (the very first "rock" band, sorry I couldn't resist) in the 1840's. Mr. Ward also gave us drummers the 1837 patent on rod tension drums. I am trying to get some better pictures and copies of the British patents, and there are some photos in the wonderful book "Percussion Instruments and Their History" by James Blades. My file attachment failed so I will have to do that some other time. Joe
