Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

Thanks Hollywood. My evil plan worked out better than I thought it would.

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

Yes, they are named after Yolanda Charles. Hitting on someone is a pretty high compliment, so I'm OK wit dat. 2 days. I can't wait.

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

Thanks man, it does look cleaner. I won't put mounting brackets on a tom shell. Cosmetically, the aluminum RIMS mounts perfectly match the brushed look on the welds :)

6 days and counting till go...

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

Fine. Drumsolos from 10 paces at dawn :)

Your drums are looking great Rich. Darkening up nicely. But your bass drum is ported, you don't have wood hoops, you're missing toms, and there's no bling....

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

Out of respect for Andy, and the real Yolanda, maybe it wasn't such a good idea. Andy puts in a ton of sweat and aggravation and hard work, blood, tears, anxiety, gray hairs, agita, money, and a...

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

A week from right now I will have them set up at a bar in NJ to audition the Gurex tom tree.

Yolanda has seen abut a 1/2 dozen gigs, but never with a tom tree.

Tonight I'm using my little bop...

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

So Andy is Zeus now? Lol. OMG We need Henri to make one of his classic visuals. He would do a bang up job depicting Andy as Zeus. Hey where is that Henri guy anyway?

Thanks man. It's funny, I...

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

Oh man you're killing me ha ha. Yolanda Gurex. I think we're done there, thanks for providing her last name. I'm telling you wildbill, this is the friggin best mod I ever did. It looks...Ah-friggin...

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

I have a dogbone for the 3rd hole.



No squeaks, no wiggles. It's really better than I had hoped. It puts my toms in the friggin exact perfect position.



If a tom tree held me back from...

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

I imagine it's kind of like seeing your offspring do a base jump or something. Yikes!



Good call on the clear coat. I have some clear enamel. No internal support. I really don't feel it needs...

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

Ha ha I totally missed that. I thought you were just being yourself. It is true though. So the bass drum fundamental is unchanged. I played it at normal volume just a little while ago. It's the...

Re: Guru tom tree. It's done.

Not really. I had more trouble with wingnuts not being able to turn because they were too close to things. I always got the tom positions I needed easy enough. Flying toms off stands...it's the...

Guru tom tree. It's done.

Well I done did it. I outfitted my Guru bass drum with a tom tree. I drilled zero holes in the shell. I didn't even widen any existing holes. I modded a Saturn 3 bass drum sliding tom mount. My...
