Beautiful! You brought a sad drum back to life! I was also thinking "Buddy Rich" when I saw it. Again, a fine restoration on a drum that might have ended up in the trash heap!

Thank You For the kind words. When you said Trash Heap I got a cold shiver up my spine.

I'm considering doing this with a 10x14 concert tom I have that has been drilled for multiple mounts as well.
Did you use a table saw to cut the shell down?

Great save! Looks really professional.

YEP!!!. That's exactly how it was done. Just put the shell against the fence of the table saw, push the shell into the blade and spin the shell.
