Default Frank Gault Historical References

Frank Gault (founder of the legendary Frank's Drum Shop in Chicago) was my grandfather. He not only owned a drum shop that was central to the drum industry in the 1900's, but played trombone with dixieland bands in the south prior to that.

I'm interested in old photos of him with drummers, musicians and other industry leaders prior to his sale of the drum shop to Maurie Lishon.

I'm also looking for other written references about him and his history with the music industry. I have a copy of Franks for the Memories and Issue 3 of the Traps Magazine.

your grandpa was a legend
1968 pink champagne holly wood and downbeat snare, and , supra same year very minty kit old pies

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.

There is one photo on the vintage drum guide under the collection of Jake Jerger.

Look for this caption

Roy C Knapp, Jake and Frank Gault (from 1963)
