Default Re: Corder/Darwin

I knew Jim Corder and his 3 Son's. The youngest Son Ken and I went from 8-12 grade together. I bought my first Ludwig set from Jim when I was 14.
Years later I taught at his music store in front of the drum factory. They were a great family and fine drum makers. Jim also gifted me my 14x22 and 8x12 Chanute Camco's. They matched the silver sparkle Ludwigs I bought from him years earlier. They also made the rainbow jingles tambourines and flip folders for marching instruments. He was quite the inventor. Another little known fact is he came up with the idea of the clear acrylic drums and presented it and a prototype to William F Ludwig. They passed and "viola" guess what?
He got screwed out of Millions.
I just wish I had bought one of his jazz series Jasper shell kit's.

I just found this site after finding a set of 4 Corder toms. Some of the hardware is missing but the hoops are all there and still round. Is there a place where I can find parts to fix these up?? Heads are in decent shape but new ones will be ordered too.
I'm a clarinet player so drums are not my thing (hence the name nondrummer. clever right I'm usually pretty good with fixing things up. Any help would be appreciated!!

I don't think I'd hold my breath waiting for your answer! Seems that member "nondrummer" was a one-time poster and never heard from again.

I have the same snare, but I wrapped mine in green sparkle. IT was a KILLER deal through this forum.. Given to me by MARIOSDRUMS.. because it needed parts. Thanks again, man!
