Default Anybody know what this is?

I've got a Ludwig & Ludwig mount of some sort and I'm trying to determine what it actually is and does. Any "words of wisdom" would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time and your help!

Something to hold traps

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

It's the No. 558 cowbell holder! I found it in the 1922 Ludwig catalog at drumarchive.com. It looks pretty darn good for its age!

Here's a link... http://drumarchive.com/Ludwig/

Go to the 1922 catalog. It's on page 69.

I totally agree with you, John, and I did see the foot cymbal mount in there. Who said that you can't teach old dogs new tricks? This "old dog" is constantly learning something new thanks to fellow forum members like Mark and others!
