Default Ludwig Accent-refinished-look at post #12

(Edit: I refinished the set, look at post #12 for the pictures.)

I posted in about feb. but I made some updates and couldn't find the old post.

specs:
Drums L to R
14" Timbale (from the 60's)
The rest are ludwig accent's
8" Tom
10" Tom
12" Tom
13" Tom
16" Floor Tom
14" Snare
22" Bass

Cymbals L to R
All Zildjian Avedis
14" New Beat Hi Hats
12" Splash
6" Splash
16" Thin Crash
7" LP Ice Bell
17" Medium Thin Crash
20" Medium Ride
18" China Boy Low
15" Paper Thin Crash

Percussion L to R
All LP
Rock Cowbell (attached to Gajate foot bracket)
Cyclops Tamborine (below hi hat)
Sambago Bells (below splashes)
Jam Bell Hi (above toms)
Jam Block Low (above toms)
Black Beauty Cowbell (above bass drum)

I started playing again about a year ago after a hiatus in college and when I lived in an apartment. The drums are new but the cymbals are they same ones that I had when I was playing in high school...this set has been fun to play again.

Wow. Great kit! I like the fact that you incorporate a lot of percussion into your drumset.

Looks like a complete set from my vantage. Love the tom set up.

Thanks guys.

I always get tempted to add another thing or two but not sure if it is worth it.

I am really enjoying the gajate bracket...trying to incorporate that has been fun.

I bought the 8 and 10 add-on toms (a real good value) but didn't like the four toms up front because the hi-hats seemed to far away. So I put the 13" on a snare stand by the 16" Floor tom to make it a lot more comfortable.

I know the accent's are an entry level kit, but I really like them. The hardware that came with it was great!

That does look like it would be a fun set to play, lots of things to hit other than drums too! Very cool.

After seeing some of the refinished drum sets online, I decided to give it a shot. Let me know what you think. I am pretty happy with the way it looks.

Wow, looks very even and clean. I noticed you added a number of things in the process. How long did it take you to refinish the kit?

Thanks.

I got the piccolo snare (Ludwig 3x13) for Christmas.

It took about 3 hours to take everything apart, 2-3 hours for my wife to get the glue off/sand the drums. From there, I put 6 coats of clear gloss on every 2-3 hours, 3 hours to put everything back on.
