I agree. Jacqes Capelle made some very cool hardware parts.
The lock down mechanism on hi hat tubes was like a bicycle seat.
I can't spell jacqe.
I have 2 of those hi hats.

Amazing hardware on these drums and i wish i knew more about them.Guess that`s why i`m here on this great and wonderful forum.The Capelle`s look to be of a very good caliber and thanks for posting them and an education in French made drums.Look forward to hearing more about this set.

Very cool! I love how Jacques Capelle used his knowledge of bicycles to design drum hardware. Very cool stuff. I've played his hi hats and kick pedals before but I have never actually heard a drum kit. Those look like some sweet mahogany shells under there!

Thanks for your comments.

Capelle was a long family history in drum making: starting from Cirichelli brand (from 1918 to 1948), then Sonic (50's - 60's), then Capelle (from 1975 to 2010)

Kits from 70's and 80's were greatly engineered: in-house mahogany shells, heavy duty wrap (same type as the wrap used in kitchen industry), high quality chrome. Some parts were reused from other industries: bicycle saddle lever from Italy (Sicur brand)

Until Japanese tsunami, mid 80's they were highly praised kits in France, with a lot of innovations in hardware (see high hat pedal and bd pedal from this era). When Japan won the "drum war" with their cheap and good quality kits (Tama swingstar & Pearl export), Capelle focused on custom kits, orchestral drums (niche market) and cheap Chinese imported stuff. Then they disappeared in 2010 when Jacques Cirichelli Capelle retired.
