Re: THE DRUM MODIFICATION THREAD.
hmmm, just stripped the midnight blue off my swingstar snare drum.
wood looked alright but a bit to pale for my taste.
sanded and put on jarrah wood stain, 1 coat of laquer (half mineral turps half estapol) then 3 coats of tung oil. looks pretty sweet.
p.s - if your hardware needs powdercoating take it to the powdercoaters!! ask them when they will be doing a set of whatever colour aand theyll gladly do it. cost me $15 AUS for all snare drum hardware except tension rods.
may the forks be with you
