    Just curious, why do you wish to make the kick drum deeper? From what I can tell from one of your images, it looks like you have quite a bit of muffling material in the kick, so I don't understand how significantly the sound would change.

    Also, what is that snare? Is that a Remo Acousticon/Quadura snare with the gripper type lugs?

    Prep almost complete. Was a 24" x 14" premier Elite Birch. Now 24" x 8". Nearly ready for wrap and adding to my Fibreglass kick to make 24 x 22.

    Hello, I just purchased a Pearl Fiber Glass kit, i'ts not even in my possession yet! Despite being a drummer for 50+ years, I've never played a fiber glass kit... I do understand the volume factor, what else do you think I can expect from my new tubs??? Any comments would be appreciated!!!

    24" x 14" now converted to 24" x 20". It's 'MASSIVE'. Just gotta add the drum wrap.

    Hi Drummage Guy.

    Very warm tone and no chance of them warping.

    Hi Cheez_Whiz.
    Going to try it without the muffling to see what sound I can get out of it. It's now 24" x 20". Had to make my own tension rods.

    I bet Walopus (you can find them on Ebay and some of the drum forums) could make you a wrap that could get you close to the color of your wrap.
