Finally we located a decently priced metal lathe, currently we are milling solid brass tube lugs for our future snares. We recently started building segmented wood hoops and I’ve been screen printing some new hoodies, Still not finished my kit but you know…. it takes time to make beautiful wood crafts.
This massive 20 x 20 kick drum will finish off our “rock fusion squared” kit, it was a bitch to glue up but we got it!! look for the completed kit featuring an orange finish in about a months time!! enjoy some pictures:
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:
Well after a successful CD Release party last night for False Flag, i got up bright and early to go help my dad with some stuff. In the process we rounded out the inside of the 12×12 rack tom looks like we are well on our way to completing the first kit!
Finally some more pics to post, today we finished rounding off our 12 x 12 rack tom for our first full kit hurrah! enjoy some more pictures:
More to come stay tuned. Nick
A gift from me to you, a drum layout mat that does drum sizes 8″ to 22″ and 6, 8, 10, lug patterns Free not 44.99 (please dont pay for one of these your better off making one with a protractor) but if you want a legit looking mat here you are. just save the image as and get it printed at a print shop, should only cost you $5
June in Calgary is usually some dirty form of summer, usually consisting of huge amounts of rain and low lame ammounts of sun I remember camping on June 5th about 5 years ago. 5 degrees Celsius… How horrible, but we toughed it out any ways. so needless to say my jam space got a little bit wet again, i installed some fresh carpet tile and ohhhh man i think it looks great! check it out:
PS more drum building will be commencing on Canada day July 1st!! stay tuned for pictures!
