Spent a lot of money on lugs and new heads but I think these special drums are worth it. I do have the 13 but it is also...

    Building a floor tom

    Deal of the year.

    Made a smart deal today, this jazz fest for painting a 20" bass drum. The drum needs an original brass batter hoop but other than that I think it's all there.
