Wow...that's impressive.
My budget is not very big...I sort of collect beaters...I'll have to shoot some pictures some day.
But you do still collect vintage hardware?
Bass drum pedals,cymbal stands etc.
I'm wondering how many of us that have drum kits collect hardware also.

And my collection is from many many years of searching.
I stay in a budget also ... It's why my drum kit collection is nowhere near most of the members in this forum.
But I can buy one vintage bass drum pedal or stand per paycheck.

Very nice! Can't wait to see some pictures! Not to detract from the pedals theme, but I have been collecting a lot of European pedals and hardware over the years. I wish I knew the Premier model numbers better. I have some Lokfast and Ringo style flat base stuff. Also some Trixon and Capelle, which was under the Pro-Mark label.

Here's some old pics.
The one next to the trixon is I think a European bass drum pedal.
I bought the hi hat stand , bass drum pedal and cymbal stand together and later he sold an old Ajax snare , no badge.

I do not recognize the pedal. (I wish I did.) It looks pretty old, and I agree it looks European. Do you think it's early Ajax? That's a cool beater on it too.

I also like the fish-shaped Olympic pedal. I have a hi hat like that.

I should take a pic of the 3 together and see if you recognize em.they are old but mostly just different than anything I've seen.

And on the hi hat collection. I've got a few but stopped collecting them because they are hard to store. They take up a lot more space than pedals. Or snares for that matter.
I've got a 70's premier , and a premier that matches the silver pedal ... Top pic 2nd from the left next to the ringo premier pedal that you see in the early pictures before he switched to Ludwig.
Also got the ringo hi hat to go with the pedal. And a ringo mahogany duroplasty drum kit with matching cymbal stands, etc.
A 70's Camco hi hat which is what I started playing on.along with the matching pedal .
thats about it except for a couple 20's - 30's W and A.

Wow, those are very cool! I did some searching and wonder if it could be Deri? At any rate, if you haven't seen this site, I you might enjoy it. It even has a pedal section. Apparently, you're not alone in your mania! lol

That's an insane collection.
I just wish I could find one of the old Sonor bass drum pedals from the early 70's. For whatever reason, I could play anything I wanted on that pedal. This one:
