Hey everyone, so I have this old Ludwig downbeat snare that I bought a long time ago with the intention of restoring it. I got distracted for several years and now here I am looking at wondering why it sat so long...lol. What's the best/safest/cheapest way to remove paint? I removed all of the hardware and really wanna see what's underneath. I dated the snare to 1969. Anyone know what the finishes were for that year? Anyone know where I can get a new/old strainer. The one on this drum is kaput. The original was replaced with a p85 and there's holes drilled through the re-rings...I wanna fill those holes and find the correct strainer. I'll attach some pics shortly.
