    Painted Inlay?

    Has anyone painted the inlay on a bass drum hoop? I have an old marching BD I'm thinking about removing the wrap. My neighbor is getting ready to paint (another) car so maybe he could do the drum at the same time. The drum has black hoops with inlays. I originally thought about painting them...

    Modern Zildjian dates

    I've bought 1/2 dozen new Z's this year. Last night while playing I became curious just how old they are. Most are either stamped AH or AI, so whats that, 2018 or 2019? What I found peculiar was a set of 13" K hi hats. The top is AH, but the bottom is AD. What's that, four years older...

    Wood block finish

    I had a block of ash I made into a few woodblocks. I also glued up some thin strips of maple to make some. What would be the best finish for these? I assume polyurethane would be the toughest. I'm sure different finishes would affect the sound, but might not be perceivable by my ears.

    Kick beaters

    I've been told not to use felt beaters on mesh heads, as they will wear out the heads. What about rubber pads? What's the best beater to use?

    What good is a CB shell?

    So I got a couple CB shells, 16x16 & 14x22. All the hardware was gone, except one lug. I looked into shipping costs, and I figured it would cost most to ship across town that what the shells were worth. So what to do?
