I totally agree. I wish a lot more people had an idea of what it takes to do those finishes. It would really put into better perspective the prices they charge. But, as they say, no one is forcing anyone to buy it. Last I heard from a one of my contacts there is that they are busier than ever.I suspect some mighty expensive examples of anniversary-themed finishes to be showcased. Looking forward to seeing whatever they come up with. Something to be said about what I believe to be the nicest exotic finishes to be had from a drum-maker. DW's exotics are absolutely stunning.
now THAT is an idea. What wood better read resents California than the giant redwoods? Making a kit from one of those as a homage to the idea of California born and bred would be so so cool. Man what an idea!!!I was hoping they secured some wood from Noah's ark for the project. In all seriousness they should try to get some of the redwoods in Northern California.
I'd rather see them used for drums than burnt down to the ground.
Josh is on it! https://www.indedrum.com/timba-drums-1/timbabassThose stainless Ludwig and these new DW stainless drums gave me an idea. I have every size of chrome LP timbales. Brass ones too. I just might have a giant single-headed bass timbale shell made to go with them....A stinking timbale kit, that's the ticket!
Yes, the backstory about these:
Peter received this drum as the artisans of the UP Drum Company in the SüdTirol region of northern Italy were interested to demonstrate their craftsmanship to the design team at Drum Workshop (hence, the wooden DW lugs). This is the drum for the ultimate DW collector.
Now it would be fun if we could find something that even pre-dates the Legero.
