The Paul Chalkin Collection Of Percussion (Lots 1251 - 1316) PD Chalklin: Potted History Paul Chalklin first played timpani in the school orchestra. He was self taught with timps and percussion. He first started making mallets in 1969, the same year in which he met Jimmy Blades. In 1971 he was invited to form a percussion section for the music department at Marlborough College where he taught part time for 10 years. During this time he purchased many of his instruments from Footes in Piccadilly and the Len Hunt Drum Company in Soho. He established mallet sales with Footes, Percussion Services and Pro-Percussion. In 1974 Paul met John Peachey who re-tuned his xylophone, glockenspiel and marimba bars. John died unexpectedly in 1980 and Paul purchased the small mallet side of his business, which he gradually expanded under his own name. Simultaneously he did a lot of playing with the Choral Societies of Bath, Bristol and Wells. He performed regularly with the Orchestra da Camera in the Midlands and the Bristol Sinfonia and did some recording work with HTV and BBC Radio. Later he co-founded the Bristol Philharmonic. In 1980 Paul commenced percussion mallet sales with Paiste and later that year, because of a passion for the operas of Puccini and Mascagni, visited Tuscany. There he met the master craftsmen of UFIP and Zanchi and established an import/export business and marketed the Zanchi Vibra brand of cymbals and tam tams in the UK. Paul ceased teaching at Marlborough College in 1981 to concentrate on the business and playing. The mid 80's saw the expansion of Chalklin mallets in the UK. In the 1990's he factored a line of mallets both orchestral and marching for the Premier Company. During this period he selected and had specially hammered sets of gongs and tam tams for personal use as well as for requests from the BBC Philharmonic and the BBC Welsh Orchestras. In the 1990s the business continued to grow, with additional new contacts in Europe. Because of the increase in mallet production he ceased professional playing and concentrated on these commitments, which continue to be demanding today.

Buyer's Premium of 22% + VAT (26.4% Inclusive of VAT)

These lots are indicated in catalogues by the use of the following symbol * Only the Hammer Price will be treated as the import price and the Buyer’s Premium will be subject to UK domestic VAT at 20%.

Anyone who wishes to buy outside the Margin Scheme should notify us immediately. An invoice under the normal VAT rules and charging VAT at 20% on both Hammer and Premium will then be issued Temporary Importation should affect only private individual buyers who are resident within the EU. Anyone who is registered for VAT in the EU should be able to recover the VAT on the Buyer’s Premium either on their VAT returns or through the 8th Directive Refund Scheme. Any non-EU buyer who exports the lots from the EU will be able to have the VAT refunded provided the appropriate export regulations are complied with 18. Property sold with a * Sym These items have been imported from outside the EU to be sold at auction under temporary importation. When Gardiner Houlgate releases such property to buyers in the UK, the buyer will become the importer and must pay Gardiner Houlgate import VAT at 5% on the Hammer Price These lots will be invoiced under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme. Gardiner Houlgate must bear VAT on the Buyer’s Premium and hence charge an amount in lieu of VAT at 20% on this Premium. This amount will form part of the Buyer’s Premium on our invoice and will not be separately identified VAT registered buyers from the EU should note that the import VAT charged on property released in the UK cannot be cancelled or refunded by Gardiner Houlgate VAT registered buyers from the UK should note that the invoice issued by Gardiner Houlgate for these items is not suitable evidence in respect of import VAT VAT registered buyers from the EU countries may be able to seek repayment of the import VAT paid by applying to HM Revenue and Customs. On request, immediately after the sale, the office can either ask HM Revenue and Customs to generate a C79 certificate (for UK buyers), or obtain a copy of the import C88 (for other EU VAT registered buyers), which may be used to claim recovery of the VAT. Otherwise Gardiner Houlgate may re-invoice the lot and charge VAT at 20% on both the Hammer Price and the Premium and provide a tax invoice to the buyer 19. Citie Restrictions As of 2 January 2017, new laws came into effect to control the import and export of all items made with rosewood. Any lots containing any amount of rosewood will therefore be subject to restrictions when exporting outside of the EU. It will be the buyer’s responsibility to make sure that the relevant paperwork is in place before shipping Some lots are sold with CITES article 10 certificates, allowing the commercial use of an item containing an endangered species. Lots subject to this are marked in the catalogue Import/Export It is the buyers responsibility to obtain the correct import/export licenses and CITES licenses for items which they have purchased. Gardiner Houlgate take no responsibility for the export of goods. 20. Gemstones Many gemstones have been treated in various ways to enhance their appearance. For example, sapphires and rubies are routinely heat treated and emerald treated with oils and resins. Some stones may require re-treating or oiling periodically. Enhancement affects market value and all Gardiner Houlgate estimates assume that gemstones may have been enhanced, in any case all lots are sold as seen and purchasers are deemed to have satisfied themselves as to condition and any possibly treatment of stones 21. Artists Resale Rights (or Droit de Suite) On certain lots marked in the catalogues and which are sold for a hammer price of 1000 Euros or greater (converted into the currency of the sale using The Design and Artists Copyright Society threshold calculator on the date of the Sale) the Additional Premium will be the percentage of the amount of the Hammer Price calculated as follows: 0-50,000 Euros 4% 50,000.01 to 200,000 3% 200,000.01 to 350,000 1% 350,000.01 to 500,000 0.5% Exceeding 500,000 0.25%
