all know the old saying, "If you want something
done right, do it yourself." Well, that only applies
if you're making an omelet. Drums on the other hand
are a totally different story. I first entertained the
idea of refinishing my drums about 7 years ago. I got
frustrated with having the ugliest kit on stage.This
Ludwig double-bass kit was purchased by my parents over
27 years ago with no cases. Needless to say they took
a real beating on the heads & the shells. One of
them even tried to escape by jumping out on the highway
from the back of my truck while leaving a gig. Memorial
weekend 2005, I decided to take a chance & do a
Google search on drum recovery. I had concert toms I
wanted to convert to double-headed toms & the 14"
had a serious gash on the bottom where it had hit the
highway. Well, I found 4 different web sites. After
speaking with them they either left me with a bad vibe
or I felt the customer service was lacking something.
The other choice was to buy something new that would
probably not be what I really wanted. I was so frustrated.
