[Nov 2017 KOTM] My current kit I built/assembled myself.

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

Here is my current kit. 

Kick is a 24x14 70's Tama Imperial shell star that I salvaged. 

10" Rack and 16" Floor I made from Keller shells. 

14" x 5.5" Stave Red Oak snare I made myself from a red oak plank.

Beavertail lugs, 2.3 mm tiple flange hoops.

The 2nd pic (brown kick drum) is with a 70's 26x14 Imperialstar kick that I also salvaged. 

2nd snare is a 14x10 stage snare also made from a red oak plank.

Great job, man. Do you like the 40 strand? I tried it on some staves I made and it just seemed off somehow, plus the sympathetic snare buzz was insane. You have to make such a sweeping bed for those wires. Did you create that snare with 40 strand in mind?

The really deep bass drums have become common now but, I really like the feel and tone of shallow kicks.

Now, of course, the builder's question - how did you round your snare shell? Do you have a shop with a lathe, or use one of the other methods out there?

The jelly bean style is killing my OCD

I used to be the same way until I assembled a "jelly bean" kit based on sizes.  I almost like it more than my black kit now.
