Yes, I stoop to clickbait! HAH! This little beaut will show off at the Chicago show, in addition to some of my other Medallion Brass series drum.

Well, it was a nice drum, then you ruined it with all that horrible engraving. I'm pretty sure no one will ever want to buy that drum after what you did.

Look, I feel bad for you, so I'm going to try to help. I'll give you $100 for the drum just to help you recoup some of your costs.

Way too much for such an abomination.

I've not seen your work before. At first I thought it was computerized but, I wondered how a process could work on the curve of the shell. Then I looked closer and began to see the tiny variations. Done by hand! That's pretty amazing. I don't know what kind of stencil or whatever you follow but, that looks like surgeon-level accuracy.

So disappointed in this piece, Eric, I always thought you did better work than this . . . just send this abomination to me and I will destroy it for you at my gigs . . . NAD

beauteous!....curious how long does it take you to do a given drum, and is it all hand work or machine?

This is all by hand, no machines involved! This engraving takes about 6 hours.
