What better item to ask a drummer to autograph
than a drumhead or cymbal?
I usually seek the 16″ or 14″ frosted white (often Remo brand) drumheads which offer an affordable item with a large space for an inscription signature or multiple signatures by band members. Cymbals can be difficult to get signed and often the ink will smear, and with cymbals priced at about $100 or higher, I only have just a few signed. Drummers always seem to like signing drumheads and many will provide their own brand at the many convention shows that they attend.

The inscribed drumhead was signed by Don Henley at the KLSX Record Swap at The Bonaventure Hotel on December 7, 1991. Personally inscribed and including “Best Wishes” makes this truly an amazing piece of very rare Don Henley memorabilia.
December 7, 1991, the day Don Henley was at the 97.1 KLSX Record Swap and Convention at the Bonaventure Hotel. For a period of about 4 hours, he sat at a chair and signed hundreds of autographs, for free, for the fans that attended.
It is the day I received about 40+ signatures during that day, by Don Henley. A day, that has never been duplicated, at least here in Los Angeles, ever since.
