Arrow 16 X 10 Stainless Steel Bass Drum
I wanted to make a 16 BD. Not sure why. I came to the conclusion that a metal shell would be louder and hopefully deeper in tone.
Explored raw metal and bending and rolling and........well it was too much.
Went online and by chance, found a 16x10 SS Marcher and thought.......wait there it is. The metal shell you were trying to make.
60 bucks and truly beat to...well lets just say it had that High School Marching Band "patina."
The head from the high school is temporary and in pic.
Actually....I have seen much worse heads and shells.
Oh now I remember why the go with my 10" snare made from a Goodwill Cooking Pan. Fo real.
