Very nice drum a very helpful piece of advice.. DO NOT take Lacquer stripper to the shell if it gets scratched up down road.. It is a painted shell under nickel plating. I ruined my black beauty trying to take the clear coating off to repair it.. So now I must replate my 6.5 bronze black beauty.. a $280 dollar mistake to have it electro plated black nickel instead of being repaintedWell I just ordered the LB408 8x14 Black Beauty. I really love 8x14's so I couldn't say no to this one. Another nice addition to my 8x14 Hammered bronze & Super Brass! After analyzing more sound files, it does sound different in comparison to the Super Brass. I wasn't totally convinced about buying the BB in 8x14 because of the possible equal sound to the Super Brass and they are also difficult to get but luckily Sweetwater received a few. I was making more of a comparison for the purpose of this thread but oh well. Now I'll own one! Major backorder on these from Ludwig. This will be my first Black Beauty!
We'll see how it is when it arrives:
