Default Re: 1973 Slingerland Super SK

I'm definitely with you idrum, its the personal satisfaction you get from restoring anything to its (or close to) original shape. Did it for years with cars, but that is done...now I get the same satisfaction from doing it with drums...why, because I can! This one was even more satisfying, as it was frustrating hunting for the few missing parts, but a really great feeling when you locate it/them.

This was probably the hardest of all the drums I've restored, but I think the most satisfying too.

Thanks to both of you for the kind words!
