    No. I found an 18" in Piano Black lacquer session Elite. Not giving $500 or $600 or whatever it was.


    Dude those ports on your kicks would look good with those chrome rings on them.

    It’s funny you mention the ports: the dude made the same mistake I did- he put both ports on the same side and it’s driving me nuts. I’m gonna invert the right one and black out the Evans logo. Then apply the pearl logo stickers.

    As far as the Rocket Toms, I have some decisions to make: leave them as is as they DO kinda meld with the shells, take one of the drums to a body shop and see if they can match the fade or paint them black like they were originally. Either way, I’m gonna paint or

    Instead of blacking them out, use some finger nail polish remover, and let it sit for a couple of minutes and then wipe it off. It worked like a charm, didnt harm the head in anyway, and didnt take but a few minutes. I didnt want the remo logo on this head when we put our (admittedly stupid named) logo on it.

    Just use straight Acetone... and don't use a paper towel... you'll scratch the black Mylar. Just an old towel or sock you don't mind throwing out. Then you can orient the heads anyway you like.

    Most nail polish remover is primarily Acetone (except for maybe some "eco-friendly" or sensitive skin types). But if you don't have any acetone lying around, nail polish remover should work fine as well. As always, test on a small area first and see how it does.

    I mentioned those two key things because 1) many people don't know paper towels can act as sand paper, and 2) many women today are using the non-acetone nail polish remover, which may not even remove the logos. If you have an old cloth, and some acetone nail polish remover, then go for it!
