    Oriollo/Page Frankenkit... The beginning

    I finally received my 12x8 Oriollo tom shell to start experimenting with the Page Drums free-floating cable-tensioned hardware. If all goes well, I'll order a 22x14, and 15x12-13 (haven't decided on depth yet). Here's an indoor, and outdoor pic of the bare shell... Not even a badge.

    Finish options...

    I'm thinking about having some drums refinished. My first thought was to go with either matte white, or matte black paint. Then I saw INDe's Reso Armor finishes (which they, unfortunately, yet understandably, don't offer on drums that aren't their own), and it got me wondering... What other...

    Gretsch Renown... 22"... 8 lugs?

    There's a guy on FB selling his Gretsch Renowns. He says the kick is 22". Yet it has 8 lugs (instead of the usual 10). I told him that I think it's a rewrapped/badged cheaper drum (Catalina maybe?), and that a Renown could have 8 lugs, OR be 22", but not both. But he says that it it's 22"...

    WTT: Mapex Orion bass drum shells - Wine Burl Burst

    I have a (diameter/depth) 22x20 Orion bass drum in Wine Burl Burst lacquer finish that I would like to trade for the same, in size 20x16, 20x18, or 22x16 (in order of preference). I figure we can just trade bare shells (and hoops/ITS mounts, if you have a 20") to save on shipping charges. Hit...

    New "Tight" Setup: Mapex, Zildjian K, Yamaha Hex Rack

    So, recently, I've been looking to build a nice, tight little kit with a small footprint, without having to resort to using tiny drums. I decided to go with the Yamaha Hex Rack for A.) the stability, B.) its weight compared to other racks, and C.) the finish on it matched my existing Crosstown...

    Proportional tom sizes??

    I'm currently planning a new custom kit, and I was curious if anyone has made/played a kit where all the toms/floor toms were proportionally equal. Here's what I mean... The tom size I find to be the most pleasing to my ears in any kit, in most cases, is a 12x8 (depth is 2/3 of the diameter) -...

    PAGE cable tuned drums help?

    I bought a couple sets of Page drums a while ago. And while I like them, the sizes aren't exactly my preference, so I'm looking to cut down the shells (or get new shells) and cables on the rack toms. I've shown a couple pictures of the cable connection below. I can figure out how much I'll...
