All drums with the exception of the 16 x 14 floor tom I restored with the lacquer thinner treatment. I’ve never tried it before but worked pretty well on the bass drum and the Tom as the color match was very good. In the end I am happier with the color match than I ever thought I would be-it was my biggest concern. Actually ended up using almond color seem fill on a couple of the drums where there were chips and it worked out great. Can’t notice at all from a few feet away.
I was lucky as all the shells were in very good shape along with the edges. Drums sound great and are a blast to play.
Maybe my favorite kit now!
