Wow! Great finish....how did you do it?
They are ash shells to begin
Well,.. sanded the shells to 220, sealed the grain SEALER, sanded, SEALER, sanded. Added black dye to my GRAIN FILLER. rubbed that all over with a paper towel and let dry. I did it again..
Then I sanded it all back down until the only black was deep in the figuring,.. sanded to about 600,.. then sprayed them w clear coat.. let it dry for a couple weeks.. normal polish and buff,..etc..
I cut the edged with an inner 45 all the way to the outside of the shells,.. then just a tiny outer back cut and smoothed over by hand.. This is the edge I saw on a set of new yamaha maple custom absolute shells. It works,.. they sound amazing.
Beautiful drums!!! Well done!!! Your patience and attention to detail has paid off. What kind of bearing edges did you do?
WOW WOW WOW,..
Finished last night.. love them.. need a different batter head for BD,.. too much attach right now..
