The Pelham Pin Protector – Mk II

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.

    Nice work — so nice that it’s likely to attract no notice whatsoever. It doesn’t look like a hack, so while you may be asked where you BOUGHT it, I doubt most people would realize you MADE it.

    Thank you Mal.
    Just a socket spanner of appropriate size and a bicycle bell top.
