Thanks for the nice words guys.

The front head is a one off. Painted it myself just today. It was the last piece of the puzzle. I just couldn't put a boring white head on it.

If you wan't something like it. I can give you some tips on painting one of your own.


Thanks, Ryan

They are absolutely beautiful! The red really pops in that green grass. And wow you are an exceptional artist, great job on the reso head!

Thanks for sharing the project with us, I really enjoyed following it.

Thanks Jeff! They are proving to be very fun to play. I need to get my chops up, and maybe I'll have the courage to post a video. I have it set up so it's almost like having two sets. one very high pitched 8-8-12 with the 10" snare. and the 12-15-and 14" snare... I am loving the broad range of sounds I am getting!!


Thanks, Ryan

Well, Here are a couple pictures of my favorite set up with these drums so far. I tried to shoot a video, but my little camera's mic didn't even give these drums a chance to shine through. So, until I can swing a better sound capture you will just have to imagine. =)

Thanks, Ryan

I agree. I spent enough time on these interiors, that I need to be able to see them! I know I skipped the step in the thread, But I even went to the trouble of buying matching screws for all of the lugs on the 12-15-24...... It's all about the details!!!


Thanks, Ryan
