Default Re: Restoration of my Sonor Force 2001

This, buying a veneer to "wrap" your shells in...I never really heard of this before, it seems like a recent idea, either that or I missed it up until now. I think it's a brilliant idea, smashing, fabulous, lovely. I like your method of gluing the veneer, but from the blisters you mentioned, it sounds like the fabric "belts" should be as wide as the shell itself, if that's possible. Smashing job David, is that birdseye?

I played a set of budget Sonors once and I gotta say, I thought they sounded terrific. I may do this to a set of Mapex drums I have where the lacquer finish is way yellowed from UV exposure. Thanks for the inspiration David!
