That's what I recall. Been a few years since I've repainted one.

Thanks!

I use black lacquer from a spray can which if not polished assumes a semi-gloss appearance. I'm fairly certain Ludwig used lacquer on the originals as A:they were set up for that for the painted drums since lacquer dried very quickly, and B: the paint on vintage hoops flakes off in the same manner as the lacquer on drum shells.

Not sure but I use the $1 spray paint from Home Depot - matte black - it looks fantastic. Recently did a lovely '68 super classic kit which has aged WMP orig. wrap.

If I want it shiny, I'll hand apply a bit of poly........

I use black lacquer from Ace Hardware on any hoop that I refinish. Gives it a nice medium sheen.

I did some '76 hoops last year. Rustoleum specialty lacquer black spray was a perfect match.
