Default Re: My Vintage Mid 60's Slingerland Jazz Kit

Hoops are finished :) That was a fun project! I masked off the inlay and I fine sanded them before spraying them with black lacquer.
Because I am to use a bass drum lifter, I also carved a crescent out at the bottom of what is to be the batter hoop. This is for the bass pedal footboard to pass through.
Drum Workshop does this on their Jazz Series kits.
If you look at the bottom of the left hoop you can see the crescent shaped cutout.

As per slingerlandfreak's advice, I flat table sanded the bearing edges on all of the drums today, then I fine sanded them by hand until they are as perfect as I can make them.
See Andy, no more discoloration on the high tom.

I kind of like old drums:)
