Walberg & Auge USA Made 6.5x14 Black Pearl Snare Drum
Established in 1903, Walberg and Auge started as a drum manufacturing company and a musical instrument repair shop in Worcester Massachusetts. W&A eventually started innovating, designing and manufacturing drum hardware for W&A drum sets and other drum companies such as Gretsch, Ludwig, Rogers, Slingerland, Leedy, Camco and Kent.
W&A also innovated and manufactured many sound effect instruments/contraptions used in the silent film industry.W&A used the components that they could acquire at any given time. They may have also made drums to order to the specs given by the buyer. This latter scenario is rather unlikely from what I've learned because W&A drum sets were sold regionally in New England to accomodate students and local drummers at lower prices than the brands whose components were parts of the W&A drums. They were true Frankensteins of the finest kind. Just think of all the possibilities of drums you could make in the 50's--70's with components of your choosing from Rogers, Ludwig, and Gretsch. And, on top of that, your own machine shop is capable of making metal and mechanical parts of your own design. Don't let this deal pass you by!!!
