I know it :D
It´s a Remo Spoxe. The frame of a roto tom! They´re not aviable anymore but I think you could just buy an (for example) 8" roto tom, put the head and the screws and everything else off until the frame remains. And voilá! There you have your Spoxe!:)

What was that rototom thing you used to play?
Haha! That's exactly what it was. It was the bottom of a rototom. It kinda had a bell sound. I dunno, I think Terry Bozzio came up with that idea.

"I like Drumbo. He was great." (Crover)

Fuckin' A Crover!

Drumbo's is certainly great! Even better than great. Drumbo is grrreat!!!

As is Tony Williams (All Lifetime's releases are uber classics)

Though given the choice Dale was given between Williams and Elvin Jones ...

I gotta side with Elvin ... man his work in the classic Coltrane Quartet is some of my favorite skins ever!

The sound on Your Blessened is a cracked ice bell, not the roto tom rim.   

Dale told me that himself when i bothered him before a PORN show in 2005.

I'd heard it was a cracked ice bell. I decided to go out and get a 6"8"10" set of rototoms anyway after watching this guy:

Me too.  Such a great, useful sound.  Cuts through perfectly.  I had one for years and kept having to patch it back together.  I always wanted to get a custom frame made to hold the plates.

Shall I point out that Dale does still use a ribbon crasher? Or are we saying he just doesn’t showcase it as prominently as he did in the past?

I went to build a ribbon crasher the other night with some broken cymbal bits, but I guess I threw them away...I ended up using a couple busted splash cymbals stacked with a pair of hi-hats with no felt and Put a tambourine on it...it sounded pretty close to a ribbon crasher and took almost no effort or time to make, and I covered "Revolve" and it pretty much saved the day..that whole recording is all about that sound.
