this is going very well, but what are you going to do for butt, throw and muffle?

glad to be a small part of your new drum. i hope this project shakes off some of your drummer blues.

Im using the throw and butt I bought from you, a red felt BB muffler from the store you hooked me up with, brand new lugs from drumsforsale.com, new rods and COB hoops from drumfactory.com. I am making this to drum to go with a black diamond pearl kit that I have, those drums all have red felt mufflers and COB hoops.
Thank you, you helped in a big way!

Jeff! You are a true master! I have no doubt that drum you'll be doing for me will be beautiful!

Mark, your drum is at the color studio having the stain and finish matched up. I wont be getting it back until around March 19th. Soon as I get it I will get to work on it! Cant wait myself to see this one!

By the way if anyone is interested I used the tape and the glue method for the wrap. Jamming Sam was the only one with the large chip BDP wrap so I went with him. After reading the thread about tape vs glue I decided I wanted to glue it on. Worked good really, the high bond tape used at the seam came in handy. And I have no worries about that ever coming loose because its covered 90% with a lug. The wrap was rather thick so I was worried about trimming it off but it trimmed real nice.

And, yes this project has helped with my drumming blues! By the time I get this done I will want to play again for sure!

The in feed table on my planer works great for wrapping drums. Here's a picture of how I cheated on the laying out of the hardware.0308190653.jpg

fan-flippin-tastic. the only thing missing is some painted over interior glue drips........and you forgot the lug gaskets.

on a serious note, get a rotating date stamp and an ink pad from a stationary store and date mark it. you could do it on all drums you build. get a grease pencil and put on an inspector initial.

Thanks Jeff, You think I should use the gaskets? I actually thought about making the paint runny.
I also thought about a date stamp. I do have some labels I could use that would indicate the make of the shell and other details. I want to do something to make sure know one ever thinks this is a real jazz fest.

put gaskets on that beautiful drum and i will drive to your house and hurt your feelings. if it is stamped mar 9 2019 you are telling the truth, and fooling no one. sign a ''j'' with the grease pencil.

Well I don't have a actual date Stamper and really don't have time to go out and try to find one. Plus I can't see ever using that again. So I did write the date by hand with a black ballpoint pen.1552171524650223459734742699459.jpg
