    Default RESTORING an OLd DIXON drum

    Guys!!
    neeed some advice here...
    my church gave me an old DIXON drums which is in a bad condition.
    what i did is
    1. examine the wood. seems to be okie to me,,.but a lil crack..will it effect the sound ?
    2. i tore the skin out of the wood..
    3. gave it to a furniture shop and ask them to give it a fresh new OIL PAINT so that it will have the smooth texture on the kit itself..

    my question is ... although the wood has some cracks and peel off ....is it worth the monney restoring it?

    i will send some pics of teh drums before and aafter so stay tune

    No i wouldn't spend the money on it. maybe heads...but not refinish it.. I'd just play it until i could get something better if it was me.

    get some fresh heads on her and tune her up. If it sounds good, to the point where you would want to use it when playing in front of people, then by all means restore it.

    If it sounds like *** there isn't much of a point, just use it for practice.
    don't look down

    The snare drum on my dixon set wasn't round. I had to use a hammer and screw driver to get the head off.

    No, sell the kit and save up for a Forum or an Export.
