    Welcome to the forum.

    I wasn't aware of any reissues but then again I'm not researching. If they aren't that expensive, grab one and find out.

    We do however expect pictures and a full review..... or it didn't happen!

    Welcome again. Hope you enjoy your stay.

    Ok great thanks for your input,yeh thay are old school but thay did do a limited edition reissue back in the mid 2000s...for a short time i have noticed some pro drummers still use them,and going off what alot of people are talking about on drummers forum etc i thought thay would have something going for them...i no alot of new age drummers want the pedals with all the bells and whistles these days,but i strongly believe that it all comes down to technique etc....i still can play a 1960s pedal no probs,then jump on a tama iron cobra and its like giving my foot some turbo boost...i just seen a guy on youtube bonzology George fludas he plays a camco old school pedal over his old school ludwig speed king....damn that guy is a fine player....

    Should look into the Sonor Jojo Mayer foot pedal.

    the original Camco footboards had a weird shape to them if I'm remembering correctly. Never kept me from buying one but I bought the newer Flexi-Flyer which worked for a lot of years. Still have it in a box somewhere

    I have the old Camco pedal from 1980 - still use it on my kit in our rehearsal room. In all those years I think all I've ever had to do for maintenance is replace the spring once.
