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.

MY SINCERE THANKS to Mr. Bun E. Carlos
for his extreme generosity in signing so many items of mine…

…and for sending me the above Rockford, IL newspaper
and autographed Ludwig drumhead.

Concert used drum sticks by Bun E. Carlos and personally sent to me from him on December 4, 2014. Please note that one of the two sticks is also autographed by Mr. Carlos.

Personally signed Remo drumhead, (though it appears he likes Ludwig)
by Bun E. Carlos indicating my favorite Cheap Trick song,
“Everything Works If You Let It”.
