Stainless steel shells for DIY?
Ausgezeichnet!
What a wonderful idea.
Too bad the company is gone.
Great looking Trowas.

thanks again =)

As the owner of two Meazzi Multitoms but just one original tuning pedal i decided to build an exact copy on my own, because this pedals are really rare & hard to find, least of all as a single piece.
The pedalplate itself i got from an broken hatstand with a little luck on ebay, its an original Meazzi Hollywood.

i measured out the original tuning pedal and got the material for it - common steel alloy

rest was made with hacksaw/file/drill/bendingtool and...love!

coated with a hammerite paint and assambled together this is one of my successful DIY projects and fits the 16" multitom very well

Fantastic. It is great to see care put into brands that aren't grafted at the hip to music idols. That orange sparkle wrap is beautiful deep and lustrous and it doesn't seem to matter how old it is. I have a snare and bongo in it from the mid-50's( the previous lug style to yours). It arrived in a horrible condition but much to my surprise cleaned up to an almost perfect condition. The old Deutsche Celluloid wrap is the best that was ever made.
All of your restorations bring life to those kits.
