Default Painting on a stain. Then what?

So the obvious steps have been taken on my 'test tom' so far (because i want to see what colours i do and don't like) such as taking off the hardware spraying over the wrap with various coloured spray paints that go over plastic and so on and so forth.

The old wrap on my kit is just plain black and i'm horribly bored of it. After taking off the wrap and sanding, then applying the desired stain/colour do I then apply a couple coats of lacquer or some other form of protective, shiny coating?

Of course the stain can't just be left on it's own to weather away over time so can someone suggest a good (or just semi-decent) coating to go over the stain and one that is CHEAP. Being 17 years old, i'm too lazy to get a job but complain when i don't have money (y)

Thanksss
xoxo

Why change your ways? Just leave it then, call it done.

Of course the stain can be left on its own. Who want's to work putting on lacquer? Put it together and get practicing.

Since you already stained the drum, what's done is done. Limits what you can do next.
You need to read up (like the info. on the side of the stain can) what will and what won't work with the product you just used.
Example...I like the Minwax family of products. So the Minwax stain recommended I first condition the wood, with a Minwax conditioner. OK....done. Then I read what the manufacture recommends I use over the stain. Put the wrong sealer or clear coat over a stain/finish/paint/varnish/oil/etc., and you get a "bad" chemical reaction .... problems.
Needless to say, I have learned this "the hard way". So, anyhow, using a third Minwax product, I shoot 10 (or more) thin coats of Poly spray over the stain.
This was all work I did to the interior of my Rogers shells.
