Default Teaser of my new snare...

Here ya go:



Birdseye maple stave drum.... mmmm.. That's actually a different size than the one I went with (I'm switching it up a bit with a 13x7) but you get the idea.

Huge thanks to frankygoestohollywood from GN and drumshed for the shell. He does AMAZING work.

Originally I was going to use something like the amber stain from Taye but after seeing what it looks like finished I don't think I want to dare touch the beautiful natural color. She's a 16 segment.. about 1/2" thick. If this sounds as good as it looks I'm thinking about having him turn a Bubinga shell for me next.

This is the kind of thing people miss out on by going with the big brand names. Such a shame. =) When it's all said and done this is cheaper than most of the good snares out there... lol

Oooh, that clear coat looks real nice. Did you do that? Birds eye is cool, but I have a certain fetish to medium translucent stains. They really bring out all the grain tones, especially in maple.

Nah that one isn't mine... He's sending me a shell that I'll be clearing but I'm spraying automotive clear on it so it'll be pretty much the same. I'm with you on the stains... I was REALLY planning on using some kind of water based stain and then clearing it but we'll see. He picked out some great lumber for me and I'd just hate to cover it up at all.

something along those lines was the original idea

This is how my exact shell looks right now:



She's getting lathed today and then sent to me. I just don't know that I can bring myself to go with anything other than a natural finish on this one.

Natural to "insercolorhere" fade. And you're welcome.

lol sorry Kungfoo... I have a feeling when I get her in I'm just not going to touch the drum other than protecting it and putting the hardware on.

Laaaaaame.

Well, I'm sure it will look absolutely beautiful as is. Is there going to be a stain, or just a protective coating on it?

By the way, I agree with you on going custom. My next kit is going to be a Gretsch, but since I'm hardpressed to find a 12x7 snare that I like (other than possibly the limited ed. Black Panther) , I'll probably see if I can find an ash or bubinga shell through a dealer.

If you can afford it now is the time to do it.. Do a search on Ghostnote or drumshed for stave builders and send a PM to frankygoestohollywood or however he spells it. He's a full time high end furniture builder that's branching into drum shells. I'm actually his first customer and he may give you a deal on a shell. Bubinga is SOOO beautiful.

It'll get a light stain and then enough clear coat to blind you under lights. Hell it's almost so pretty I feel bad about beating it to death... almost...

Well, despite the popularity of Maple shells, after reading various critiques and analysis of shells, I think I'd be better suited for Ash or Bubinga. Ash because it would match the overall sound of the kit I'm going to be getting (Catalina Ash), and Bubinga because it's a very bright-sounding wood. And with dimensions like 12x7, I'd want the brightest wood possible.

The BP is an obvious choice, but I've only found that specific BP once in a while because they were only produced for '06 M Birch kits. Plus, I dunno.. I see custom drums as having a lot more effort put in to them because they're hand-made and not put on an assembly line.

There's something to be said about having a drum that no one else has... Plus a lot of times it's cheaper anyways. lol

Default Re: Teaser of my new snare...

Let's see.. what did I pick up today...

Stepped drill bits
3 different grits of sand paper
Tung Oil
Amber stain (JUST in case...)
more foam brushes
Wiltons Cake Layout mat
threaded rod (to make a jig for the layout mat)

The other snare I'm making shipped from drum foundry so I get to play with that one first I guess.
