    I thought it looked like letters, but I couldn't see enough to tell what it said. Those look awesome. What type of paint was used?

    I usually prefer natural wood finishes (or black), but that paintjob is badass! Can't wait to see the whole set!

    thanks! i can't wait to see it all done too. my friend who is doing all the painting can only work on it one day a week for like 4 hours and there was 2 months where he could only do once a month, so its been agonizingly slow but i think the result is worthwhile. the lightest green is spraypainted on, and we did all the drums pretty quick but the other 2 colors are hand painted on and that takes a lot longer.

    if i had to choose a favorite drum finish, it would be natural woodgrain fades but since that wasn't gonna happen with this kit, i wanted something wild.

    i'll keep posting pictures as i make progress!

    Well I've been gone for a lot longer than I thought I would be... Life really got in the way of my drumming for a year or so :/ but I'm back with a big update on my project! My friend who was doing the painting flaked out after my last update here, so with 2/3 of the kit left I went my own direction and finished it out. I still have the graffiti painted kit posted here but the rest of the drums were left half painted :(. I sanded them back down and went with a solid color. So now my 9 piece double bass kit is now 2 separate kits. The new configuration is a bit odd with a 10,13,14 toms but I'm absolutely loving the sound! Hope you guys like it, and I'm glad to be back!




    Also rearranged the practice area a bit.
