By cunning use of (and recycling…) the head of a bicycle bell, here is the Mk II Pelham Pin Protector. The need for this was hastened by the fact that Lewis’ Buescher Big B was less than a snug fit in his Berkeley case. I know exactly the problem Lewis, I have/had the same problem with alto and tenor Berkeley cases !
I can’t help but imagine, that, when not in use, Lewis will park it on top of a conveniently close cymbal stand – thus giving the drummer the ability to make suitably subtle ‘dinging‘ noises throughout the set.
Hope you’ve applied for a patent, Lewis ? Looks great, I’ll bet it blends in well with the art-deco look of the Big B.
