Default My New C&C Custom kit - in Progress (more to come)

I haven't been here for a while and I apologize. A heavy schedule has kept me away for some time. I am happy to report I now have an endorsement with C&C Custom Drums.

OK... I know this is just a picture of my shells. But, I wanted to share my excitement for my new kit. C&C sends me updated pictures of my kit in production and this is the first one I received. This is right before staining.

The kit specs will be: Flat black with marine pearl inlays and tube lugs. The snare finish is up to them and is going to be a complete surprise when I pick them up. The sizes are 9"x12" mounted tom, 14"x16" floor tom, 16"x24" kick and 6.5"x14" snare (their 6 ply re-ring snares.)

More pictures to come and when I pick up the finished product; I PROMISE to take some pics before I leave on tour (which is coming up quicker than I expected). I PROMISE!!! I know we all love drum "porn", well I do.

Cheers mates!

The wait is awful in so many ways. First off it will be an awesome kit that will sound amazing, second some of my friends are already leaving or have left on tour with their new C&C kits for the spring schedule and third I get to hear my friend's kits mic'ed live and I just drool over how fantastic they sound. C&C Custom Drums has been so good to me and I am very proud to say I endorse their drums.

p.s. zepplin92 thanks for recognizing how insanely excited I am to get my hands on these drums.

The drums look pretty good naked!

I am betting those cutout stripes are going to be abalone inlay....

Cool!

Congrats on the C&C kit! Bill builds some phenomenal drums and the drums in his booth at the NAMM show were some of my favorites. Great sizes too.

I fell in love with the green abalone 6"x14" snare. Derek Grant's new snare was pretty sweet as well. I think it was 8"x14". Did you happen to check out the lace finish C&C did? WOW!

Yet another update from C&C. Ready for hardware. The inlays look sweet. I can't wait to see them in person. The snare finish is still a surprise. So, the excitement builds as they reach completion.

Very nice. The inlays are very tasteful and bring a lot of attention to the drum. Which, of course, is what life is all about.

How many coats of black did you put on the shells? Was it water or alcohol soluble? I'm interested in making a maple snare with the black wood dye and then stain it with red mahogany over the black for a two-tone effect and then gloss it up with tung oil and lacquer.

I'm not building the drums; they are made by C&C Custom Drums. So, sadly, I have no idea what or how they did my finish. Ghostnote.com would be a great place to go for information on custom building drums.

Personally the inlays are not to my taste, although they are very pleasing and well executed! You've got a great set of drums there and I hope they sound as good as they look.

Those look amazing! love the inlays and the opposite colour snare, it was brave of you to let them do it but it turned out really cool!

*sigh*... to own a custom set... :(

Thank you for all the compliments. I truly LOVE this kit. I know it was brave of me to turn them loose on my snare finish, but I trusted them; one of the many keys to a good endorsement relationship. Can't wait to play our CD release and leave on tour now. Have kit, will travel...

-peace

Again, I love how the snare compliments the kit, and I mean LOOOOOVE. but when you saw the shells after they were waiting for hardware (pic further down) were you not worried that the orange sparkle shell next it was your snare? :P

And I agree with brokenglass, more pics, now!!!!!!!

Yes, it is a nice looking kit! For me though flat black...a little dull, but the kit does look good. Better pics would help us all!!!

I LOVE the 6ply re-ring!!! I'll just quote my thank you letter I wrote to C&C.
"It just sings. It has this cut that is forceful while resonating with this "sweet as warm honey" sound. I LOVE IT!"

I wasn't worried because I knew who was getting the orange glass inlay. I honestly had no idea what to expect for my finish. All I knew was the size and plys. When I saw the snare I fell in love and when I tuned her up and had rehearsal I feel deeper in LOVE with this snare. It is AMAZING and C&C does fantastic work. I'll get more pics as soon as I can. Thanks again everyone!

You should trust them they are artists in every sense of the word, they have their reputation riding on the products you will play and endorse. They want to make the best possible looking kit and I give them kudo's for the finish they chose on that snare!!!

All I can say is that looks absolutely amazing!!! Congrats you are a lucky man!
