Memorabilia of BJ Wilson, Procol Harum's great percussionist

Hi hats etc offered for sale, thanks to Gary Brooker 8 October 2014


Gary Brooker's vocal explanation of the items offered for auction: click to listen. Bid for cymbals and stand at eBay


These hi-hats are in good condition; they're stamped with the name Hayman, which was the kit of choice for
Jon Hiseman, Mitch Mitchell, Simon Kirke, Aynsley Dunbar et al following their late-60s' launch

Like the other items offered in this sale, these hats belonged to BJ Wilson, who played them with Procol Harum for stage and recording work;
 they were later in the possession of Gary Brooker, who played BJ's kit for home demo purposes

The Rogers stand that accompanies these hi-hats is a good deal more worn and corroded: self-evidently we have not tidied up nor cleaned any
of these items; they're offered in used condition and have clearly been in storage for quite a while. Their historic patina will
surely give them real appeal to BJ's fans they are as he handled them but of course they can also be
cleaned up, restored and so on as required by their eventual lucky owners

It looks complete but we have not assembled or tested this
