Some time in the near future i want to either get a cutsom logo bass drum head with a cross on it or my friend who is good at art was going to paint on the head i already have, I have two questions.
What websites are good for getting front bass drum heads with logos and such?
If I have my friend any suggestions on what he should use?
Thanks in advanced for any information i get. :)

there's tons of custom head sites out there... just be prepared to drop about $100.

if your buddy was to paint your current head, i'd suggest acrylics but it's almost guaranteed to look like shit... unless you have a coated head...

almost forgot...

custom vinyl decals work great too...

i've used them a ton of times and not only do they professional... they can easily be removed and, depending on the size, would run you between $1-$25.

I won a contest from these guys recently: http://www.woodshedpercussion.com/contest.php

the artist we use has been ill though, and we haven't completed the project yet-
but I plan to file a report when we get the head in hand.

They offer some pretty cool options though-

Hello, I'm new to the site but I felt I should chime in on this subject. I just recently ordered a custom drummer's shield for my bass drumhead from http://www.vintagelogos.com. Pretty reasonable pricing too.

if you're going the painting route a good idea is to use a clear head... paint to logo on the BACK side, let it dry, then paint it black over that. or white or whatever. gives a cool glossy look
