I've had a busy old couple of months - loads of heads & drum stuff. One of my projects was a tom conversion for a producer friend of mine.
Steve, had this late 70's 14x10" tom hanging around and had not being used for years. He wondered if I could turn it in to a monster snare.
When doing restorations or custom work, such as this I don't like to buy cheap crappy parts - especially when drilling into an old drum - I want something that will be able to be on there for decades to come - both in playability and look.
I sourced period correct COB Slingerland Stickchopper Snare hoops from the states, and I did a good amount of searching for a similar era Slingerland throw - to no avail, so I decided to go with a modern and excellent Trick.
Hi there, James here. In this blog I'm going to look at all the stuff I'm working on. Expect drums, diy and audio nerdiness.
