Just an old guy musing about the past again. I was looking at Q drums and I realized that every company out there uses the Pearl-type spurs. Maybe not every, but just about. Now, don't get me wrong. They're 100 times better than the old crappy spurs for the most part, but I was thinking how all of the old brands had their own iconic spurs. Ludwig gull-wing and later those curved ones, Slingerland/Leedy long disappearing, Gretsch crappy Walberg disappearing, Camco horrible curved, Premier cool disappearing, Fibes uber-cool turn-lock, Hayman big gull wings. The best was probably Rogers swivo. But you see what I mean about individuality. But the new ones are better and I'll be the first to admit it. Just the variety had a coolness about it .
