    New Channel and some programming/content...

    Cerakoted bells

    I Cerakote for a living. If you never heard of it, it’s a ceramic based coating that is applied at .005” thick. It is extremely corrosion resistant and stands up to a lot abuse. The company introduced some metallic colors finally and so I dug out some old bells from the early 90’s to coat. The...

    A 12-sided shape is a dodecagon or dodecahedron. This drum has similarities to bata, udu, mridangam, conga, djembe, cajon and more. Each head has a distinct batch of tones and pitches. Chambers in the wood sides around the sound holes make different tones when you tap them. Manipulating the...
