Default My daughter's new shagadelic drums

For Christmas I decided to refinish a drum set for my 8 yo (step)daughter since she was always inquiring about mine. I could tell she had natural rhythm and interest in music so I made it a priority. She LOVES them and I'm excited to have her learn some stuff. Her kit is setup right beside mine so practice is fun.

The kit is comprised of Tama Granstar shells collected over the years and other gear I had lying around. The wrapped shells were stripped and lightly sanded, then I applied the fur fabric. A friggin' sticky and hairy mess I tell ya. Repainted the hoops and kick drum head.

24" kick
10, 13, 16" toms
Ludwig supraphonic snare
Sabian AA hats and crash
21" Zildjian Avedis ride
DW/Pearl/Ludwig/Yamaha hardware
Evans/Remo heads.

Nice. :)

I got my daughter an Adam Percussion set which set me back ~$300 a few years back. We played together a few times over the years, but nowadays that's but a memory. I have a feeling though that we might pick back up on that in later years. :)

Now th'at's nice and funny, also my daughter would love it and maybe it would be a good way to make her love drums and drumming.

Many years ago (say about 30 years ago !!!!!) a good friend of mine did exactly the same thing with his set (well, actually the color was dark green ...), and I remember that the set got totally tubby and almost unplayable! Well, these were glam / disco / post-hippy years ...

Nice job, but how many muppets does it take to recover a drumset??

Fraggles are pretty small. It takes a LOT of them to refinish anything more than a 4-piece. You end up with color variations

OR, if your looking for a more economical solution, you can easily do a 10-piece kit with one snuffleupagus. Not as high quality fur, but you make up for it in volume.

I had to cut down the edges more because if just a bit of fur was contacting the head it muffled the drum significantly. Right now they resonance is cut down a little but overall they sound great, especially the floor tom and the kick.

Only 4 muppets were harmed during the production of this drum set.

She could also play with Dr. Teeth or ZZ Top.

Woa, that's a very sweet looking kit. A 24" kicker and a Supra for an 8 year old?! You sure know how to spoil there Pa'. Years from now we'll be reading about your and Gwaco's daughters making it big in Nashville or somewhere.

All she's missing now is one of these hats to wear while she's drumming.

Cheers. Your daughter is an incredibly lucky girl - contrast with my experience as a child where I had to relentlessly nag until Dad grumblingly bought me a dire $100 Frankenstein kit and from then on he regularly reminded me of how good he was to let me make noise with it. Better than being banned from playing but hardly encouraging. You are SuperDad! :)

It looked as thought you culled Red Menace to cover the kit but he's just posted on this thread so I guess he's ok ...

I'm sorry. I must play the devil's advocate. That's the most rediculous thing I've ever seen. I just saw one for sale finished like that on another web site and everyone was making fun of it, I said I was sorry. Though for an 8 year old, it's probably not so bad. Now, you guys are gonna be mad at me. :-(

There is a point where the ridiculous turns awesome. The 80s big haired, leotarded metal bands tried and failed miserably - but this kit...well...it's so ridiculous it's absolutely bl00dy awesome.

Mr Underhill, consider your back patted!

Mr. Underhill - that is a beautiful thing you did for your step-daughter.
The effort you put forth to make them........makes them a treasure ...for both of you.

Well done I say! The drums look great!
