    Default Catalogue Corner

    I was thinking it was about time we collectively banded together to put up as many drum catalogues (vintage first, modern greatfuly accepted) as we could find...

    I was thinking websites etc, but if you can upload or scan and upload catalogues you have that would be great too!

    Personally I'm mostly interested in PEARL catalogues...

    Since I'm starting this thread I'll go first:

    Pearl's history with Catalogues from 1964 at Pearldrum.com

    Current Pearl Catalogues

    1972 Pearl Catalogue online, scout around this site for more!

    51 Different drum and cymbal companies as .zip files
    including 11 different Pearl catalogues.
    Major Brands like Pearl, Gretsch, Ludwig, Slingerland, Rogers, Tama, Yamaha covered.

    So there's a start peoples, let's make it grow!

    If we get a good response can we make it a sticky?

    I had a few of these. That black "70's Zildjian Catalog" was my first cymbal catalog I picked up around 1980. I still have the Black Zildjian Cymbal Set Ups of Famous Drummers Book. It's still a great reference to see what Zildjians drummers were using "back in the day." Times were a lot simpler then with only one line to choose from.

    This is a great idea. I think that this should be a sticky. There is a lot of info in these sites.

    Here's another one:

    Vintage Trixon drums from Germany

    You have to check out the elliptical kick drums and the very early racks!

    Apparently these are not to be confused with modern Trixon drums available in the US today

    Ludwig drum owners probably already know about the Ludwig site, but there is a catalogue page there also:

    Ludwig Catalogues

    You can also purchase a CD of Ludwig catalogues through their online store

    Links appear to be broken! PM me if you have a new site...
