Hey Folks
Gary Posey of Summit Drums has been sending me some progress pics of the Steambent Curly Maple Travel kit that I have commissioned him to make for me . I thought I would share some of the pics .

First set of pics is just after the shells were bent and reinforcing rings added . No sanding has been done yet .

Sizes are 20 x 10” bass ; 12 x 6” rack Tom
14” x 7” hanging floor Tom .

Man , those are great sizes .
I’m guessing at those depths these are one piece shells ?
Wow ...I’m pretty set drum wise , but if I happen upon a pile of dough I know where I’ll be getting a kit from ....

Yes steambent , one piece shells - all the shells and bass drum hoops are from the same board . I will be adding Stellar wood hoops to the kit .

It looks like a different shell with oil applied, like it came to life.

I didn’t see a travel kit coming from Summit. The sound will probably belie the shell size.
