Vintage 1930's Hi Hat Stand For Parts Or Repair Antique very old.Very cool looking stand! It may be a Walberg Auge. One of a kind and very rare. Condition is Used. Shipped with USPS Parcel Select. In one of the pictures, you'll see a piece of chrome tube laying next to it. That came with it when I purchased it. I collect cymbals and this stand came with a set of Zildjian high hat cymbals I purchased. I hope someone wins this sale that can restore this piece of history.
Walberg and Auge: Established in 1903,Walberg and Auge started as a drum manufacturing company and a musicalinstrument repair shop in Worcester Massachusetts. Originally named Taylor& Auge, Bernard Eric "Barney" Walberg bought a half-interest inthe company which until then was a sole proprietorship of A.L. Auge. AfterWalberg joined Auge on Oct. 3, 1903, they began the manufacture of drums andother musical instruments. The firm eventually started innovating, designing,and manufacturing drum hardware for W&A drum sets and other drum companiessuch as Gretsch, Ludwig, Rogers, Slingerland, Leedy, Camco, and Kent. In 1920,'The Music Trade Review' blamed Bernard Walberg for his inventions used in the'Advent of Jazz'. At the time, Mr. Walberg's inventions included the first cowbell holder for the trap kit, first traps table, first Carry All bass drum,first folding bass drum pedal and many other musical creations necessary forplaying the new radical music of jazz. Shortly after this accusation, Walbergand Auge invented and manufactured the first hi-hat stand (based from the lowboy/sock cymbal stand W&A was already making), first triangle holder, firstcymbal stand with rubber feet, first tom mount, first drummer's throne, firstclamping basket snare stand (Buck Rogers snare stand), first telescopic wirebrushes and much more.
