I have made the decision, conscious or otherwise to refinish my 80's vintage DLX kit. 11 drums in total...Presently it is Wine Red Lacquer showing the Birch grain through the lacquer. I was considering another transparent finish but some work on a spare drum shell revealed that I would damn near have to sand the outer ply off the drum to get rid of the red colour, therefore I have decided to refinish them in a solid finish (non transparent)...HOWEVER, I am wondering...if you had he choice to refinish your own drums or have them custom built, what colour or colours would you choose?
I am partial to greens or yellow and was considering having all the chrome redone to "Black Chrome" but still on the fence. I know certain colours make chrome pop and chrome makes certain colours pop...so trying to decide...
Have at er boys...fire away with your colour schemes.
PS I have the ability to finish these drums in any colours fades, bursts or designs possibly including air brush work, but final finish will be a high gloss finish.
