Quick question. Did WFL ever use aluminum grommets? I’ve seen many WFL drums with the typical brass grommets that match the typical Ludwig 1960s drums, but I’ve also seen some WFL drums with what appears to be a larger lighter-colored aluminum grommet…is this normal? Thanks for your time!

Yes. I’ve seen a few aluminum grommets on WFL’s Zephyr lug and early 50’s
Thank you sir. Do you also know if WFL always stamped there spring style floor tom leg clamps and bass drum t-rods with the WFL logo? I’m looking at a kit and I’m not seeing WFL logos on the old spring style floor tom leg holders as well as the trods on the bass drum. Maybe they stamped the logo in the later 50’s?
