That looks great, and like it was designed that way!

Your snare turned out looking very nice. I really like how the hoops look. What did you use to strip the powdercoat?

I did a similar thing to my Pearl Ultracast snare. The powdercoat on the shell was chipped and peeling in places, so I stripped it off. The hoops and lugs are still looking good, but I think they are black chrome rather than powdercoat.

I soaked the parts in acetone for a few hours, then it came right off with a wire brush! How'd you do yours?

I used Zip Strip to remove the powdercoat. I think it stripped it all off with a single application. Left the shell looking kind of dull, but I buffed it lightly and it turned out how it looks in the pictures. I personally like the contrasting look of the black and silver finishes better than the original all black finish.

Looks great! I had some diecast hoops - one black and one white. I tried Citrustrip and it did a horrible job. Will try dipping them in acetone (ie: nail polish remover)....thank you!
