Specify shell dimensions, type of bronze (treebronze-the original Ocheltree alloy...around B11-12...88-89% copper to tin), or aluminum-bronze, where the aluminum is substituted for the tin.Beautiful!!! Couple questions for you if you don’t mind. Where’d you score the Ocheltree replica lugs from? And have you had any issue with them stripping at all?
I just found this thread and hoping Duluth is still making these drum shells and hoop!
Trying to get all the details squared away before I Email them. Any procedure /
Order details greatly appreciated!!
I would need to mail them the lugs, throw, strainer right? Anything else besides shell size/thickness?
Also, what are your thoughts about shell thickness?
I’m looking to have made a 8 x 14 and a 6.5 x 14
thanks so much!!
They currently can do 13 and 14 inch diameter snares.
Shell thickness. The thinnest they make is 3mm (like a Tama Bell Brass), the typical Ocheltree thickness is 4.7-4.8 mm, and I believe they can go thicker.
Are you getting matching bronze hoops?
Specify number of lugs (for drilling and if you’re getting matching hoops) 13” drums only come with 8 hole bronze hoops, 14” drums can have 8 lug or 10 lug hoops made.
Yes send in your hardware (at least one lug, throw/butt, vent hole grommet (if used), and they drill for your hardware.
They also do the edges and beds, which are sharp 45’s that are IMMACULATE. I don’t believe they do other edges, which is fine, theirs are perfect.
