Re: Heads for single sided "concert" bass drum?

Re: We lost another icon. . . RIP DJ Fontana

Re: Removing double sided tape residue on a bare shell-Will not be re-wrapping

The only solvent I use on solid wood is acetone. Not nail polish remover as that has other crap added to it. Just the best acetone you can get. Reagent grade preferred. Try an automotive paint store...
