This will be updated every time I change stuff. I made a compromise between my love of color and my want to make a hand carved set. I will be using...
6 and 8 ply maple shells
Ego Rounded Single Ended lugs
Ego Black Chrome tension rods
Drum Maker Wood Hoops (the style that's drilled)
What I will be doing is have each drum a solid color (so you can see the grain this time): White, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple. All over a carved design. The lugs will all be different colors, there won't be any two alike. Black tension rods so when you look, you will focus more on the finish, they won't stand out.
10x8(red), 12x9(orange), 13x10(yellow), 14x14(green), 16x16''(blue) 6-ply toms
22x18'' 8-ply bass (purple)
14x8'' 8-ply snare (white)
17, 18, 19'' Crashes
8, 10'' Splashes
12, 16, 18'' Chinas
6, 8, 10'' Bells
I'll work some special finish out with Jamie. It's between Green Glory (which might not work), a special Symbolic, or designer Earthworks.
