Any craftsmen in the Tampa, Florida, area?

A friend of mine seeks to cut down a nonvintage deep snare drum and have (at least) one edge recut. Who has the tools and skills?

Post publicly or PM me.

Thanks!

Re: Had no idea...

The company sold its Vic Firth Gourmet line of kitchen products in 2012 to concentrate on its core drumstick business. Those pieces were evidently well-known for their quality.

Re: Zildjian gong

+1 on a 20" Paiste gong. Sounds just as good as the larger ones and opens up a lot faster. Also easier to transport ... it nests perfectly with a 22" bass drum.
