Now the snare you see is an OLD Tama Grand Star 14x6 Birch shell that came with a chrome wrap that I traded 15' new beats for..trust me, I bought a pair of 2002 15' soundedge hi-hats, so for me it was a no brainer. It sounded beautiful but I am not a big fan of wrapped drums. So guess what I did...
I took the wrap off and sanded it down, painted it black to bring out the wood grain and then sanded it down again, now reapeat that about six times.....it sucked but when I finally put the red to it..it looked really good.
Here she is in all her glory..its OK people, you can drool. She sounds as good as she looks.
Here she is with the kit in the same room as my friend Damion's kit.
So tell me what you think? For not knowing how to re-finish before doing this what do you think of my handy work?
Be honest, I know I could have done better but I want to hear what you have to say.
