Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

The hoops I'm thinking about staining dark green and then throwing some tung oil on those too. I'm gonna test...

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

Definitely would get a more authentic worn in look that way.
I only really take the drums out of the house maybe once a year if that now though.
Also, I think I may have turned this project into...

Re: The 23" bass drum

I've always been interested in seeing an 11" and 15" inch tom paired together.

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

So... made some progress with this project, here's the kick so far.

Ended up going with a burl veneer and coating it in tung oil. So now I've got my low luster finish I was looking for.
I tried a...

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

I realized after watching this video, interesting veneers look like a pretty easy way to get a more weathered kind of vibe.
I really like how he used the holes in the veneer.
Interesting veneer...

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

Wow, nice... these guys have everything.
I'm throwing them an email explaining the kind of look I'm going for and I'll see what they recommend for me.

Aeolian,
Yeah, I'm realizing now just how...

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

lol

I'm actually considering taking an old stand, protecting all the threads, etc. and throwing it outside for a few weeks to see what happens.

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

Ahaha, definitely agree that it is a little strange to buy purposely roughed up clothing... at that point, it becomes more than the outer surface or visual part of the product that is altered, and...

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

Good point...
I'm gonna give it a go with a cheap Sonor kick and floor-tom I picked up for under 100$ first.
But I eventually want to start up a project like this from scratch.

I suppose that's...

Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

Bit weird, I know, but I've always been a little repulsed by shiny lacquers and chrome plated hardware.
I'm slowly amassing the parts and info I need to make a dirty, gritty old antique looking drum...

Re: 22" x 12" bass drum - 2015 Origin photo's / spec's

Very beautiful looking set.
Question though....
I know that reducing the overall mass will leave the drum much more resonant. How does it affect the volume of the drum though? Does...

Re: 7", 9", 11", 17" Toms...

If I could go 11", 14", 16", that would be perfect! Always wondered about 11"s... I've always found going from a 12" to 14" feels a little odd, and if you move up to 15", then the 16" next to it...

Re: DW Specialized Shell Construction

I don't really know what the deal is with much lower pitches being "in" now either, but whatever it doesn't really matter. I just thought it would be cool to have to have slightly smaller dimensions...

Re: DW Specialized Shell Construction

Well.... I haven't actually heard one of these shells played with a head on it, but based on this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJ6AvR6E8-s (skip to the end-ish) at least, the shells...

DW Specialized Shell Construction

Howdy everyone!

I'm thinking of saving up for a DW 3 piece SSC kit... I want the kick and the floor tom to have some of these vertically oriented grains on some of the plies to give them a lower...

Hey all,

I wanted to talk about a problem I've been having in with my ear for a while and see if any of you can relate to it... I always have a low ringing in my left ear, it's not really...
