Camco maybe? I have something like it, though I cut it down and used it for a camera mount a few years ago.

Lol. I have used it for a couple things.a practice pad holder and I've also put an Aquarius spring cymbal holder on it, to use as a cymbal stand.

I recall seeing something very similar for sale at a music store. I think it was bagged with a Cannon branded label. I might be wrong on that but, regardless, I don't think these style tilters are terribly old.

dtk is right. Going by memory, they were made by a man named Dudley Taws. He machined all of them. He made quite a few varieties of cymbal extenders and clamp on holders. I bought quite a few back in the 90's. He ran ads in Modern Drummer and was adamant about selling to independent shops and not selling to the big chains.

Here's the original Duplicate X cymbal stacker. They made 6" & 12" models. I still use them , for me they are the most adjustable and simplest to use. I will buy any of these you guys don't want..
I only have one.i would consider parts trade if I can find more , but I'm pretty sure I just have the one.probably not worth shipping.
