    Default Pics of my kit and Gong cymbal and stand I made.

    Here's a few pics of my superstar kit and the gong cymbal and stand I made.. This was that Chinese serving tray I had bought a while back... I wore blisters on my hands but I beat that thing into submission and now it's a gong.. Not as loud as I would like it to be but a gong none the less..

    Thank you.. i have been buying different toms.. but I have sand them down and restain them to match the cherry wine.. the concert toms are imperial stars and I tore off the wrap but the wood underneath was never meant to see the light of day so lesson learned.. I'll redo them someday with a nice wood vineer and start over..Also I made a bracket coming off concert toms to support the legless hi hat stand.. I just started playing double bass and the pedal made me move the hi hats out further then what I like.. Not perfect but better now.

    Nice! Gong looks good and stand as well. I bet if you made more stands like that one they'd sell quick.

    Thanks Slinky.. Hope your doing good.. I remember you said you had some heart problems a few month back. My dad had a heart attack and had a stint put in.. I love blacksmithing work.. I make a lot of bowie knifes and sell them on ebay lol.. the twisted steel rope is pretty expensive.. couple of hundred dollars a stick. I would have to twisted it myself.. I guess i could come off a tractor pto or off of dad's old 54 ford pick up rear wheel lol.. takes some serious tork to twist 4 pieces of half inch round stock cold like that into a rope. If you were to try and heat it and then twist it would probably screw up, just not an easy task.. They got a monster machine that does that. gear reduction ect..But if anybody wants to make one or something similar you can go to Kings Supply and buy ready made scrolls and twisted everything.. Awesome store!
