Re: THE DRUM MODIFICATION THREAD.
Use painters tape and seal the edges and holes. This is the 8" tom in my pictures below, after taping and applying primer.
Its always a great idea to try a test case before tackling the real drum you want to work on. If you can find a beat-up lacquered drum to test out your ideas, you'll have some experience before you start in on the kick drum.
