Heya ya'll. Been looking at the beautiful drums i've seen made, and I think i'd like to try my hand at it. I think I just want to do one drum for now, but I really have no idea where to start. I'd like to do either a snare or a floor tom. If I did a snare, i'd stain it, don't really like wraps on snares. If I do a floor tom though, i'd like to get it to match my old Tama Swingstar in "Misty Chrome", and I don't know if I could do this. So, if anyone would like to point me in the right direction? Are there any places where you can buy all the hardware you need for this sort of thing? I've been reading, and I know I wouldn't want to drill the holes in the drums myself, as I don't trust myself to this kind of thing. So, if anyone knows anymuch on this subject, your help would be greatly appreciated.
Tama Swingstar: Two 22" bass, 12", 13", 16", 16" toms, 15" snare
