Show off your bass drum head graphics

I think this bass drum head design is EXTREMELY cool. Let me emphasize it's not my band, not me playing, and not my bass drum. I did take the photo.

The band is Van Wholen, a Colorado Front Range band that played only David Lee Roth-era Van Halen and songs from The Who. This was a 102F performance at "Leftapalooza," a multiband concert sponsored by local Left Hand Brewing.

Van Halen and The Who are absolutely two of my most favorite catalogs and this was a great band. I was proud to be a active fan (borderline groupie) and unofficial photographer. The drummer, Greg Koch, left Van Wholen before they morphed into Van Cruelen (replacing The Who with Motley Crue) then went on hiatus. He now plays locally with "Stuck On Vinyl" and other projects.

Seems to be one of those mysterious foot toms. Nice shot btw.

I love this thread! Bass drum art is way cool, and there have been many stellar examples. I get my first custom head tomorrow! Hope it measures up, but pretty sure it will ;)

I forgot I can do this now...Supergrobi took my original head concept and made it a million times cooler!

Wow that looks super! I love the speaker cone effect Alex VH would be jealous! That beats his horns.
Is there a Rolling Stones connection?

Nope, just a bass player who endorses Ampeg and loves the Portaflex amps. But I do love the Stones and respect the major role they had in establishing the SVT as the new standard in bass amps.
