Cool idea with the guitar strings.
Damn! Thats a bummer about the plating being gone. It sucks, but in my opinion, it does take away from the coolness of that old girl at all. Makes her even cooler.
How were the edges? Is it in round?
The lug casings were originally nickel, right?
What a cool drum.
Twin strainer sounds really cool.
Anyone ever use it in a real-life situation?
I mean, I know it's an awesome drum and could be used in any musical setting, but I was just trying to think of some situations where the two sets of wires would be deployed independently. It seems...
I was hoping for maybe nice tube lugs or something simple and elegant that can take an insert.
Also, something that meets my odd standard for proportions.a
Yeah. That's kind of how I figured it as well, price-wise. I know it will be a lot more expensive.
This project now feels like something...
Yeah that makes sense. Seems like yamaha and their piano, drum and other finishes have also helped raise the bar. I've never owned Yamaha or DW complete sets, but their finishes have always looked nice.
Has anybody ever had custom lugs made?
Are there small metal shops/machine shops that do that kind of thing or is it generally not worth their time?
I have a few shells that I want matching lugs for but the already-drilled hole spacing is making that quite difficult. I've looked...
