By late 60's trap cases with wheels were pretty common. I would think the sticker was added at some point, but maybe not . . .The font style of the logo for "Professional Percussion Center" looks to be late sixties/early seventies. Not staying that such points to the date of manufacture, just that it was likely made around that time. As for manufacturer, could've been Humes & Berg, or possibly, Anvil, or perhaps one of the three major US drum companies of the era.
Thanks. I tend to agree with the time frame. I started playing in '63 and never saw a trap case like this until this came into my possession around 1980. I'll probably put it up on Everything Else For Sale soon. Just looking to describe it as accurately as possible.I’ve seen that style case with the leather handle from the late 30’s and onward through the 50’s . I couldn’t say who actually manufactured them.
I have always thought 50's. I have 2 of those in immaculate condition. Nice case!
Thanks. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean it was bought there or then. The sticker could have been added at any time.According to Corporation Wiki, The first use of this ("In place" for Drummers) for the Professional Percussion Center was August 1, 1964. It wasn't trademarked until 1979.
