Question President Drums - London Dallas

Does anyone know about President Drums?

I have a 14" Snare Drum with rope snares on exterior resonant and wire snares interior batter. See pictures.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Arrow Re: President Drums - London Dallas

I got this info. from this very Forum. A post from 2007 regarding a gold sparkle President snare drum.

J E Dallas & Sons was established in London in 1875 and by the 1920?s they were selling drums actually made by Premier under the Jedson brand. Carlton Drums were launched in November 1935 and by the 1950?s the three kit lines produced were the top line Carlton range, the semi-pro President drums and the entry level Gigsters as well as the Gaelic marching drums.

By the late 60?s, Carlton Drums were turned into Hayman Drums by Ivor Arbiter.

Well, thanks very much for the quick reply. I should have checked the Forum first. I'm feeling a little silly as a result. Thanks again for enlightening me.
