Hey all. I've got a single ply 14" shell with rings. Looks like maple. Probably about 100 years old

There's a little bit of ring separation and the drum should be re-leveled and edged. It's amazingly cool. Just need to figure out how to tighten her up.

Where can I send this shell to have the work done? I can do the finishing. Just need it all tru

What's with the althread running through the lug holes?

Wow. That's a good looker! The althread is an interesting idea.

That's going to be one heck of a drum!

I just had my mid 60's Gretsch RB kit get the bearing edges recut and the whole kit rewrapped at Precision Drum and I'm very pleased with the whole process and the results!
