Default Refurbish

I have been working on refurbishing this kit for a long time and , since I recently retired, I now had time to work on it. It started out as an "el cheapo" that I could leave in an orchestra pit and not worry about it. Unfortunately, it had a very ugly blue wrap that was not attached well. [IMG][/IMG]
I stripped off the wrap and it looked ok.

I even gigged with it unfinished for a while.

Recently I had time to stain and varnish it. I think it came out alright. Sorry about the focus. I was under low light.

It looks remarkably like the kit I used some 50 years ago.

That came out really nice Zick. Yours is the second kit that I have seen on this site this week that was unwrapped and refinished that turned out to be really cool.
You never know what is underneath the wrap until you peel it off :)
