I've decided to have Mark Kohler (who took over Eames when Joe retired) build me a 12" tom so I can have the option of using a 2-up configuration if I so desire. At the same time, Mark will be refinishing my other shells because the particular color stain Joe used during the original build is no longer available, so I decided to have them all done in the Eames ebony stain. I think it will look nice. Question for those that have done refinish, re-wraps etc., when removing the hardware from the shells, do you mark each lug so you know exactly where it was on the shell, or is that not necessary?
Thanks for your input. Hope everyone is staying safe and well

I was just wishing my Eames were Emerald green instead of the newer rosewood which is more brown.
is it possible to sand off and re-stain a drum?

that's what they'll do. the ebony should cover well of course being so dark

I try (when moving lugs from shell to another shell- vintage) and put nicked and rougher ones on player side
but if all are nice & shiny shouldn't matter..
