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!
Glad you like it Larry!
I didn't hear of anybody wrapping up shells with veneer that way either.. I don't know, maybe I invented something new ;)
Regarding the blisters: Yes, either wider belts would have been a good idea or more belts.

Yes, the veneer is birdseye! :) Loving that!

Going to post more pics soon!!!
