Default Re: Remo Ambassador coating wearing off...

Nice pic :)

I just got a new coated ambassador for my snare and the coating started to flake off in the center during the first tuning.

I was working in a furniture factory a few years ago and we had similar problems when we switched from one paint supplier to another one. The paint coming from the new company was supposed to be similar but there were some issues with the white paint we used not being consistant in quality.

I wasn't working in the painting department so I don't remember the specifics but I think solving it was a case of having to play around with the ratios used in mixing the paint, thinner and catalyst together.

Might have been a case of a new paint / a new work method / a new machine handling the paint that was causing the trouble at the Remo factory also
