    Vintage c. 1940s hi-hat stand made by Walberg & Auge. This was branded Perfection, Ludwig Miracle, Gretsch, Leedy... depending on which catalog you were looking at. One of the earliest hi-hat designs, this stand evolved from a lowboy model with the same footboard that pre-dated it, a real piece of history. Would make a perfect match for your older swing-era set with that huge bass drum and Chinese toms, etc. Very good condition with typical wear due to age, solid and functional. Cosmetically, there's some missing chrome. $65 INCLUDING SHIPPING.
