Good luck. The only Capelle gear I have seen is one bass pedal (not the one with the post that spans the rims) which I bought forthwith.

I remember reading Henrit's articles about them at least 100 years ago (give or take)

The people on http://www.ladrummerie.com/index.php have been pretty helpful to me when seeking info on Capelle. (I used Google translate to translate my text)

Never heard of Capelle. Interesting layout and that kick is very odd to my eyes. Would love to hear one in person.

Good luck finding your old baby.

Hit that kick batter on a Friday and the sound comes out the other end on Monday!

Jacques Capelle only closed his shop last year, having built fine quality handbuilt kits in his rather small workshop.

For a short period in the seventies, he also made the drums sold under the "Orange" marque.

You can read a nice article here:

http://www.mikedolbear.com/story.asp?StoryID=2842&Source=Search&txtSearch=ora nge|drums


There are still some videos on Youtube making advertisements for his work:


I bought this exact kit (though I sold it on, including the 10" I had him make me as an addition), one of the last to leave the workshop:



There are catalogues at http://drumarchive.com/capelle/

and

http://drumarchive.com/orange/


I have a very nice 1978 Orange in real african mahogany - real thick layers, and nice art deco hardware:

There is a guy selling a Capelle set right here in LA...he wants $8,000!!!! Im not saying it is not worth that much because I dont really know but that's a lot of dough, man...
