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...

my band logo is simple, so i did mine with masking tape and spray paint! ;

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.

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

The guys here have offered a lot of good choices. the only thing I'd add is that quality is worth the price. If you have it done professionally, you'll have a quality pro look. Most of these companies charge from $100-150 which includes the cost of the head, which would cost you $40 anyway. The cool part is that you can use your own design or logo and e-mail it to them and they will laminate it onto a head of your choice. A little pricey maybe, but so much nicer looking than the do it yourself method.

You could always find a local silk screener in your area,
when I did, it was an initial cost for the screen and print around $80, and then I had the screen for future heads or whatever else I wanted to print the logo on, reprints he charged me 10 to 20 bucks...
granted I was going for a one color design, but they can do multi color jobs , of course the price goes up but you always have the screen(s) for future heads cause you never know when your drunk ass singer or sound tech is going to stumble on stage and fall right into it!!

Thanks, I got a good laugh from this. I'd also add, if you're in a punk band and your bass player gets a little rambunctious and stumbles into your kit while pogoing around the stage. Arr! harr!!
