Default Home made piccolo's and new setup

Hello,

I made two piccolo toms out of a 10 x 9" tom of my old set.
I know, I have to buy a good stand, but I have no money.
They're not white, they are the color of the wood.
Can I paint them with a spray can in the color of my set??

I have a few pics of my new setup too.

Hi there I love your set - im no expert but i believe that there should be some sort of wood stain that you could get for the piccolos.

I like your idea.
Nice way to use what ya already got.
As far as making them look like the rest of your set, Bish is right on with the stain.
The thing is, if you piccolos are a different wood than your set, they're going to look different no matter what, and you're probably going to have to experiment with stains to see which one matches best.

Good luck,

chris

PS - How do you like those Alphas?

Thats is the way to do it, strip the finish to bare wood and stain it, but get a few samples to best match the stain. If you take a close up pic of your sets finish to any good paint store they can match it pretty closely.

those are looking pretty sweet I think I might do something similar. Nice kit, I got the same one. I think the amber is the classiest of all the Catalina finishes IMO

I don't know how to discribe the sound, but I like them :-)

I stripped it already, it was wrapped in red.
I think I'm going to take a tom to a paint shop, but I don't think it's going to match closely, because there is a wood structure in my sets finish, but I'll se what they can do.

You're right, I don't like the red one too.

I saw that some time ago and that inspired me to make my own piccolo's.
First I wanted to make octobans (inspired from Big_Philly), but maybe I'm going to make that later.
Your future plans are great!!

Thanks!!

Bram

That's an alright kit you got there m8. That's really good those piccolos you made yourself. You might just think of it as cutting a bit of wood but trust me, i can't even cut my sandwiches straight down the middle let alone a bloody drum! Also I'm digging the poster, that's an amazing album!

Nice soud proofing as well ;) does that stuff actually work? might try it.

I did nothing anymore with my old kit, so I thougt about making piccolo's, and my old kit is nothing worth, because all the harware is broken...

On the picture is a little bit sound proofing, today I got more and did the rest of the room.
The little bit helped a lot already, and since I did the rest I haven't played, so you'll hear tomorrow or coming week if it helps.
Are you a Rammstein fan too?? They make great music!!

okay might have a go with some (where do i get some from anyway?)

And yes bit of a fan, i even have a t shirt. I'll have to go see them sometime. Mein Scwester is off to Germany next (academic) year for uni so maybe i'll be able to then. That'd be pretty immense.

My neighbour used to sell eggs, so he had many of them.
According to me, Rammstein doesn't tour at this moment.
