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!!!
