#ThePlatinumProject Exes For Eye’s

I feel the need to share this bands recent venture because what they are doing is revolutionary, not only are they an amazing group of guys and not only does this album rock!! These guys are trying to cut out the middle men from the music industry and do it them selves. Basically what your getting is an amazing album and the knowledge that your actually supporting the people that gave up their personal time with wives and kids and friends and jobs to produce this beautiful labor of love. For one dollar ( Count em one dollar) You could own this Gem!! Ill let them further explain the details:

You can purchase the album here

16 x 16 floor tom progress!

Well, the snow has fallen and winter is officially here so drum building is in full swing again. Today we made more progress on the floor tom and we are starting to really think hard about our milling jig, we’re going to get a proper jig welded up with dials and fancy knobs, so today we milled the drum down with the router on top and i must say this is the way to do it. I have been fooling around with “mirror” finishes and that’s coming along nicely also been messing about with wood dye that is some potent stuff!! Got a nice pie of Purple Heart for a future snare drum and finally organized our drum parts. All in all it was a good productive day, enjoy some photos:

Time

Being a new father i have seen my time disappear, between finding time to get into the studio with the band and playing show’s and actually practicing drums, working on basic drum things that i need to work on.. Time has been running out, lately im only getting about a half hour a day to play drums and then 2 hours with my son then hes in bed. CANADA DAY oh sweet Canada day i have a day off work and you know what, i think its time to start building that jazz kit. seeing how we already have the measurements and angles dialed up for the 14 snare, it seems like a 14” floor tom is a good place to start, im hoping to glue a 12″ rack tom as well.. oh yeah and happy birthday to my son who has been the most amazing person i have ever met, i cannot begin to put into words the joy he brings to my life. So i did what and music loving drum playing father would do… i bought Jack a mini drum kit (used) its some Chinese built ludwig kit but its the right size for him!

happy birthday Jackson, love dad
