lol, have to disagree..there is just something special about it...it's like it is not intending to be flashy..but it is anyway..i dunno :? the gold in the finish I posted second, is almost too bright to me.
i was wondering how you got into making drums and where and how you learned? did you do a course on joinery or carpentary? me and my brother are starting to 'taylor' our first drum set next month but its always been a dream to actually learn how to build drums, not nessesarely building the shell, but cutting my own bearing edge and doing my own drilling. if theres any books or tips on how to get into it id very much appreciate it.
