Sorry if I missed it, but what are the sizes and shell thicknesses? I can venture that's a 20" bass drum, based on the 8-lugs.
I went with medium beech all around and heavy maple on the kickOK, thanks.
What would you (or, did you) do differently for next time?
Same here, eager to see your pics when it all comes in. You got white sparkle, correct? Haha autocorrect changed “when” to “Chernobyl”! Makes total sense!Nice... I was almost going to go with black interiors, but it looks like natural beech actually has a pretty nice grain that I wanted to be able to appreciate.
Was also considering a heavy bass drum since I use the Artie Dixson lifter that the batter end just rests on top of. I was concerned about the lower weight of a smaller shell not anchoring the drum down enough. But I'll deal with that by adding a bean bag inside the drum if necessary.
I will look out for your update(s)!
I stuck with white sparkle, yes. Looks very classy, lights up the dark corner I may have them in, probably best finish for concealing dust, and you don't see too many other white sparkle finishes on drums. In fact, I can't think of any.Same here, eager to see your pics when it all comes in. You got white sparkle, correct? Haha autocorrect changed “when” to “Chernobyl”! Makes total sense!
I think you and I discussed that but maybe in a different thread.How on earth do you afford these drums..

Thanks for asking. I like a bunch of different drummers and it’s really more that I wanted to go for an overall tonal palette, if that makes sense.
As for style, I love fusion, prog, jazz, and funk, and keep toying around with incorporating odd time, polymeter, and polyrhythms into grooves without making them sound too technical or stilted. It’s an ongoing process…
