Default Re: 15" snare to floor tom project

Chromeo,
Nice drum. What year is it from? I think my next project will be more challenging because the veneer seems so thin and it’s damaged in a couple of spots. I need to do a little reasearch on it to see what the other plys are made of. More on that in another thread.

The catalog were this drum shows up is the 1922 catalog on page 19. I could not find it anywhere else where is offers a maple shell. From the stamps inside the shell, I’m concluding that the shell is from February 1941 before the war.

I’ll send a screenshot from my computer since I can’t seem to do it from my iPad.

Here is the screen shot from the 1922 catalogue. I think on the iPad it is a .png file and when I put it on my computer, it becomes a .jpg file.

My clear ambassador resonant head arrived today so I set the old kit up. Hope you enjoy the photos of my project.

Nice project and a great looking "old school" kit ! I've wanted to piece together an old kit like yours for a long time now but all I ever do is talk the talk ... you've walked the walk ! Congratulations !

Beautiful! The floor tom looks great with the other drums. I too have wanted to do a project like that but like drumdoug I just talk the talk.

Thanks, stay tuned for my 13 inch Cub Model transition to a rack tom. If you have any ideas on repairing mahogany veneer let me know.
