    That looks really good, but I think it'll flake off on the hoop if you play lots of rimshots.
    pls no bully ;w;

              The powdercoating process (when done right, of course) results in a pretty sturdy product.

                The badge is gone. they gave it back to me when finished. it couldn't be coated.... I was going to glue it back on but I like the looks of it without.

                  Curious how the powdercoating impacts the sound of a very bright brass shell. Thoughts?

                    The blue and white is eye-catching. I believe your snare is considered a 14x6.5. It's interesting that you were able to get the diecast hoops powder coated. The shop you go to must have a cooler oven OR they laid the hoops flat to "bake". The oven at my powder coater runs at over 350 degrees... which totally destroyed 2 Mastercast hoops of mine. Steel parts easily survive the over, but the metal used in diecast parts can't take the heat.

                      There are a plethora of examples of die cast drum parts being powdercoated, just check out the 'custom' drum companies' galleries.

                        Looks like a 14 x 6.5 to me too.... but cool looking just the same

                          If those pinatas are made of die cast drum parts and powdercoated.... then, yes

                          Edit: crap. I missed the 3 Amigos Reference........

                            I'm an idiot.. its 6.5 also... they are diecast.. and they were not round when i got them back.......... i'll use steel next time..... did some "forming" of my own to get em round again...... but your right. good lesson to be learned.....

                            I like the sound alot..... mind you I'ts got a new head and all. i find it slightly less harsh......... but to be honest... it doesn't sound much different. a thin layer of powder is all that is over the original metal.
