That Golden Boa sure is nice!

That will make a very unique kit.

"That Golden Boa sure is nice!"


You know ... it was my first choice way back when I first looked at wraps.

Then I side-tracked myself (maybe) trying to not make a mistake ... now in the end I'm back to it again. And Queenie likes it a lot as well, so maybe it was meant to be all along.

JC likes any of them ... if it was his set it would be the Psyc-Mod Orange, which was certainly and seriously in the running for me, but there is a sort of Mauve tone built into it that turns me away a little ... I'm glad I got the sample to actually see that before I made a selection.

Finally picked up a couple of mufflers for drums that are missing them ;)

I also got my bass drum wrap removed and the hoops stripped, sanded and finished. On the hoops I went natural with just teak oil and wax. Should look dandy with the Golden Boa wrap.

Oooo!! Nice!!

How hard was the wrap to remove?

I have a 22" WFL shell that wrap came right off. My little Club Date shell was a pain in the arse. Once I figure out the right method it went pretty quick but it took almost an 1 1/2 hr to figure it out.

So you decided on the Golden Boa??


That should look killer!!

"So you decided on the Golden Boa??"

Well, I have not purchased it yet (saving up some cash) so considering you're never 100% certain until you spend the money, Ummm ...

Yes, I have decided ;)

Wrap came off the Bass pretty easy ... my 18" floor tom was a bit harder as was the 13" tom.

There is a five ply 14" rack tom shell on eBay I might snag as well ... we will see what my attitude is like at auction's end ;)

Also ... There is a guy selling reproduction 60s era Slingerland (brass and black) badges that look real nice. They have no serial numbers (would be considered counterfeit if they did) I am going to purchase a set of those for my kit. The brass will go real nice with the golden wraps. One of my snares is an authentic 60s piece with the same badge

I'm selling some small stuff on eBay now to scrounge up a positive PayPal account balance, hoping to get enough for the new badges at least. The wraps will run me about $400.00, I haven’t quite figured out how to swing that one yet ;)

Yeah drums are another money sucking hobby for me. Then factor in some nice sounding cymbals.

;~)


If you compare vintage drums to vintage guitars, drums really don't look that pricey. There are exceptions but in general vintage drums can be found fairly cheap.

I haven't posted much on this ... but I have been trudging along in my chase for parts.

I just (in the past couple of days) purchased some very nice claws and T-rods for my bass drum ... ... I am eyeing a very, very nice bass drum pedal for purchase as I type.

I'll be down to needing only wraps quite soon ...

Queenie said she would help me out on those ... that's very cool :)

Sounds like you've been busy with home projects to boot?

How's the outdoor kitchen coming along??

Mortar ... It's doing very well. I'll post to that thread again here soon.

I managed to win the bass pedal last night as the only bidder. It looks real nice and is described as *Perfect Condition* ... I think it will be a great addition to the kit.

As of now I have a complete set ... just need wraps so it can look the part :)

That will likely happen by Holiday Season.

News Flash ... JC is now in another band.

He will be doing some recording in November. It is occurring to him that my Kit is nearing completion ... He says, "will it be done by the middle of November?" I said, "Well if you pitch in it might be."

anyway this kit will be larger drums than his (which from the original post by me was the point here) ... He is getting all jazzed up wanting to see if this kit will sound better than his.

I have two wood snares and he really wants one of them, so that may be the enticement to get him helping out with the wraps.

We shall see ;)

I finally ordered some wraps.

I'll have everything I need to finish off the Bass drum and the two Snare drums.

I did order the Golden Boa wrap.

I also received my bass drum pedal today ... It looks super.

Next I'll have the 18" floor tom plus the 13 and 14 inch rack toms to order wraps for.

I think maybe so ... as in the thread title ... My *larger than usual* drum kit :)

I'll be adding more drums though as I go ... they will work toward the smaller end of the spectrum.

I'd love to have a big Bonham green sparkle kit, but I'm a little pressed for space in my room..

Maybe some day..

Very Cool!!

The wrap came from Jammin Sam's ? Did you use their tape or a contact cement??

Yes ... Jammin Sam's. And Yes the tape application, which worked very easily.

I'm doing the 7" snare next.

Late to this gig.

I like the later black oyster a little better then the original, IMO while not as vintage it looks a little better on stage. Both are cool I have an after after 80s kit with it.


You know that picture you posted Blondstart in the first post, If I,m not mistaken I think the Tom is the later wrap and the kick the original.

Blues Beat ... I believe you are correct on that observation ;)

I've been held up on progress with this project. I have the two snares finished and the wrap on the bass ... slow getting back to it and finishing up the hardware. :(

I'll get back to it though. Took five days off to go to Front Sight and now a back-log of work. It's nice for the bank account, but screws up my ability to spend time on the fun stuff :(
