Awesome is the word. my collection is small compared to yours..wow.
Tho, I prefer my pedals complete in workable shape, so you can see the engineering and the prosses of how pedals evolved.

Hi Saz....the rest of the pedals are in containers that a few drummers come by and look for parts.....some of the pedal parts have the info written on them somewhere. I'm almost ready to sell all pedal parts to one dealer. I will never put the pedals back together again....and I 'm tired of all these pedal parts sitting around in all these plastic containers. My footboard collection has been named "The Wall of Shame"by my drum buddies.

Let me know when you're ready to let go...I'm not too far from you.
Tho I'm not a dealer.

I have a small collection. Here are 2 of the most interesting. A Frisco heel activated and a Bantam,
What did the Frisco cost? And where did you find it.
There are no drum conventions near me (that I know of) so I have to buy what eBay has available. And for the cooler old ones people usually out bid me.

I think I got both pedals from the same guy. He used to own a music store in Marin I think it was. He was also A drummer and kept a lot of old stuff which he was willing to sell. Got a bunch of stuff cheap. So maybe $10 for the pedals. Love the wood shaft on the Frisco.

I don't have a collection (yet), but I have become a lot more interested in vintage hardware and pedals lately. There is one pedal in particular that I've been keeping an eye out for though. Seems to be pretty rare as it's difficult to even find pics of them online. I think they were only made for maybe a year or two. The 1980 Pearl Model 910.

Thanks! The 810 models seem to show up on eBay pretty often. I'll probably pick one of those up too. Main difference is the 910 used a compression spring. I just have a feeling I would really like it.
I think I may have one. Here's a pic.

I don't really collect pedals, but I love to find oddball oldies. For example, here's a c. 1920s No-Nic (Nokes & Nicolai of Boston, MA) pedal that I found at a flea market two years ago. I have since sold it to a forum member.

Very cool..yet another pedal I haven't seen.
What amount did you sell it for ?
Just trying to get a grasp on market prices.
I know the general ones that were mass produced but ones like this one..I gues it's worth what someone will pay.
Thx for sharing...awesome pedal.

Hello...I do collect pedals and I wouldn't hesitate to pay $200.00 to $300.00 for that "No-Nic" pedal.

I sold it for $100. Maybe I should have charged more :) But it didn't cost me much, so I kept my price reasonable, too.

Wow, Thx , Dave.
Your collection is awesome.
I've been lucky so far as to the fact I've kept to not going too far over the 50.00 range for a pedal.
It's why I've lost out on the really cool old ones, I get outbid.but I'm keepin the madness in check..lol.
