I'm no expert on lugs and other hardware :p It looks like a very interesting design though.
I think the lugs are the same distance from the hoops it is just that the rims mount look like a hoop and they are not.

Here is a Custom kit of mine. It is an HD Custom Drum set.



The sizes are 24x20, 18x16, 16x14, and 13x9. This kit sounds HUGE! I built it for the band Paper Tongues.

Here they are on the Jimmy Fallon Show.



I tried to start a custom kit thread, but someone directed me to here and said there was already one up and running. So I decided to post here as well.

Cool finish. Tell us something about the construction. Do you make the shells?

Man I love those lugs!

That drum with the rope looks cool too. Does the rope have any significant sound characteristucs on the drum?

Default Re: show off your custom drums!

I have some Gretsch Custom USA drums - delivered yesterday.
I bought them to match my Gretsch 125th Anniversary snare drum.

Sizes: 18/12/14 - snare is 4.5x14
Finish - Champagne Sparkle Nitron

I have renovations going on so they're set up in my livingroom for now. I did set the drums up today without cymbals....just to check them out a little. My God they're nice drums.....solid, pretty and sound great. It will take some time to get used to the 18" BD....the setup etc. Any tips are welcome.

These photos taken last night right out of the boxes.

Stavebuilder, how about a run down of what they are made of? I think I recognize the bottom one as your Wenge and Maple, but the Wenge no longer looks like Wenge. Or did you build another with a similar spline design?

Stunning craftmanship. This settles my argument in the Saviour drums thread, guys who assemble and finish Keller shells and call themselves "Custom Drum Builders", in my eyes they are assembler finishers and have no right to the title. You sir, own the title.

Thank you, fellas, for the compliments.

The first one is a 14X6V1/4 quarterswan bubings with maple rerings and birch inserts.
The second snare is a 14X6.5X3/8 walnut with integrated rerings.
The third one is also walnut 14X6X1/4 and has maple rerings and beech keys.
Goon, you are right. Here is the wenge and walnut shell you were thinking of.
Regarding the builder vs. assembler debate; personally it doesn't matter to me who calls themselves what. I know (and you know of) a number of well known "assemblers" who have ever right to call themselves builders even though they don't build their own shells. They have plenty of skill. To me it's just semantics, but still, I thank you for the compliments.

What a beautiful drum! Those wood accents, especially the ones on the strainer, are fantastic and really add a lot.

Totally mindblowing. The inside of your drum looks better than the outside of most drums I have seen. The attention to detail is stunning - right down to the wooden knob on the throwoff.

Wow, just when I think I've seen the nicest drum I've ever seen...and those modified Trick stainers are very cool.

The only problem I see w/these snares is that we usually have to put a coated batter head on them and then you can't see inside.

Thank you for the compliments guys, It's very much appreciated.

As for not being able to see the inside because of the coated batter head, flip it over when you want to look at the inside, most snare side heads are clear:)

It is funny that you mention that though, The customer that it went to usually goes with the Remo black suede snare side head. I'm more of an Evans guy the I put an Evans Symphonic snare side head on it which has a very thin very fine coating in it and he liked it a lot, but now you cant see through either side.

Yeah, I started, just discovered, the Remo Renaissance snare bottoms, they are similar to the evans symphony I have been told. Really thin, and sound great. I finished a snare last night, and have committed to assembling my cherry stave this weekend, which brings me to 8 snares I dont really need lol.

I will do a group shot when I am done. Won't come close to Michael's, but most of mine are customs in some form or another.
