The drums came from my school. I really wish I had before pictures. It was a early 90s pearl export that had a wine red rap on it. The thing looked like it had been to hell and back, it was warped, had rippled, huge scuffs and just plain looked bad in spots.

We had two different people donate two different drum sets to my school, an imperalstar (tama) and an accent (ludwig)

The tama is wine red, and the ludwig is black. I managed to my band director that we needed a really off the wall set, he let me take the pearl.

1000 points to anyone who can guess what color the stripe is going to be! GN people don't count

I saw your pink snare on your yard-picture on myspace today and I totally understand that you go with pink stripes. Will the rest of the drums be black?

Kit looks cool get some pictures from the gig if you finish it in time!

That is exactly how I wanted my kit (except for the pink!)

Please can you tell me, how did you stain the wood without bleeding into the pink band as I didn't think this was possible. Also, what sort of stain did you use.

P.S> I know this is my 1st post so I hope you don't think I'm being cheeky or anything but I've been looking on here for a long while so Hi! to eveyone. :)

I got kinda lucky. This was my trial set for staining stripes. After I taped it off I used an box cutter and went along the top and bottom of the tape making a sorta mote. The stains were also really thick stains that I got made at me local star lumber.

I think that the nature of the exports shells (not the best by any means) also kept the stain from bleeding, because they didn't take the stains to well. If these shells were maple I'm sure there would have been a lot of bleeding.

I wanted to have them done but today is the last day, and I want to build up the finish more. My new goal is to have them done by Thursday so I can use them at a show on Saturday.

This wasn't my first time redoing a kit, I have built/assembled finished whatever you want to call it two snares and refinished one other kit.

however this was my first attempt at poly, and stripes

So I pretty much finished them today. I got the shells buffed and the hardware all put on. I was to lazy to find a drum key and some heads to get them tuned up, but I will do that tomorrow and I will also get some outside pictures with them.

shells are real cool, I probably would not have gone with pink though. I would have maybe kept the natural would grain on that part.

just my 2 cents

Well I said I would get pictures out side, but that didn't happen today. We had band practice and I just finished tuning them when my guitarist showed up.

I did a lot of edge work and finished the insides with shellac and these actually sound really good. I would have no problem gigging with these.

when you have such a great set you really can not put a reso head upside down. That totally distracts from the kit...

the tama logo is upside down because it is going to be removed...I just thought it was wrong to have a tama head on pearl drums.
