    Default Its coming together...

    Its all starting to come together.. i finally have all my stands. Which i thought would never happen. I wrapped my bass drum after wrapping my 8in and 10in toms. Quickly ran out of wrapping material and i still have my 12in diameter 10inch deep, 13in diameter and 11inches deep, and 16x16in toms to wrap. Ive received all the drum heads needed with the exception of my 16in tom head. Its an Evans EC2 but just a little used. But since i put money in making grommets, filling dents and dings. Plus having to get enough hardware to mount 4 rack toms and 6 cymbals is both expensive and can be daunting if working on a small budget. The drum set will grow as i re-save for better parts or possibly a custom set altogether. So many companies doing interesting things to make beautiful sounding drums. Anyways heres some pic updates.. more can be found on my profile

    While i cant post anymore pics as of yet i will post a side by side comparison of when my bass drum was... well trickin... to now being a born again virgin. It took a lot of work... many, many hours. But in the end it all worked out. Scared me as it was my first time dealing with such an issue. But my bass is alright, all holes plugged sanded and while you can try to color match... it just isnt going to happen with putty. Wood putty was tricky too... took almost 4 days to harden. I tried sanding after 2 days and it was still kinda flexible and i left it alone, came back a day later and it was rock solid. I sanded most by hand except the patches.. had to use a palm sander.

    Almost done though... all the drums have been coated, i painted the 8in toms hoops white (which i had planned to do to all lugs and hoops) but for the sake of puttting it together decided to hold off on that project. Plus my gasket project was a bust for the lugs due to the screws that were used. Im able to put them on the mounting hardware which is a plus. Luckily i didnt cut a lot out. So having some extra rubber sheet laying may come in handy. Thanks to those whove supported me during this remodel.

    OfXaos,

    There's a company in Sweden who uses the same wrap for some of their snare drums.

    The wrap reminds me of the IKEA black-brown furniture colour option.

    Which is okay by me as it is well represented in my home.

    For those interested in the wrap its a self adhesive black wood wrap found on Amazon. I had to two 2x of the 20$ rolls since i was a fool and wasted a lot of material the first time lol..now its just been a pain putting my hoops back on. Not sure if it was the wood work i did or the extended time off the drum but my tension rods are angled funny and im afraid this will effect tuning.

    I'll find out once i finish cleaning the 13in and 16in toms.... the bass drum claws went on just fine even though i put a finish on the wooden hoops. Ill post pictures of the kit once its done
