Default Bass Drum Decal

Hi All,

was curious if anyone could tell me where I could purchase either a decal or someone to airbrush a TAMA TRIBAL insignia?

I'm in the Toronto area ....

Cheers

Mike

Decals are available in most drum/percussion catalogs & stores.

As far as paint goes, do a 'search' in the forums for bass drum heads there are
a few designers,painters who visit here!

Hope this helps :)

Print out what you want, have a stencil made, use removable spray paint. Can use different colored paint on different nights ( and/or heads).

Or stencil cutter person can design you something.

Kinkos will do vinyl stickers, you just have to have the graphic file.

I make my own all the time. I print out what I want then tape it to a piece of MonkKote trim. You can find it where RC airplanes are sold in hobby shops. It comes in a ton of colors including one of my favorites, chrome. It is sticky backed and one on it WILL NOT come off. I then cut out my design. The trick is to re-tape behind your cuts until you are done so the pattern does not shift positions.

Then the trick for placement, I use this trick for any stickers I apply to almost anything. ammonia based window cleaner. Spray the drum head and get it good and wet, peel off the backing and place the sticker you made on the head. as long as you keep it wet you will be able to slide it around as you like and adjust. Once you have it where you want it let it dry. Then clean the head and you are done.

Here is my latest one, I am sorry for all of the reflections in the shot but I think you will get the idea. I did all of the, the DW logo and the shield

How much would making one of those cost in the end?
