    Default Premier Resto-mod using Rockenwraps

    Some folks here have seen some of my resto-mod handiwork. If not, here's a peek at my last project:



    Anyway, I just finished my latest project - a Premier Artist Birch kit. This is how it started life:


    • 1966 4-piece Ludwig Black Oyster Pearl
    • 2000 8-piece DW Collector's Grey Swirl
    • 2002 8-piece Pearl Masterworks GB Packer Gold
    • 2008 8-piece Tama B&B Lava Glass Glitter
    • Paiste Signature 12, 14, 14, 16, 16, 17, 18, 18, 20, 20, 22
    • Paiste Formula 602 14, 14, 16, 18, 20

    Step 1. Disassemble the drums and give them a good cleaning. Lay out all your parts in a good work space.

    Step 2. Wrap the drums. I added some Scotch permanent double-sided tape, as the Rockenwraps only use one strip of high-bond tape.

    Here you can see the tape strip. Very important to keep things square here!



    Step 3. drill/cut all the little holes. I drilled first, then cleaned up all the holes with a knife.

    Step 4. Reassemble the drums. I carefully trimmed some of the wrap to make sure it doesn't interfere with the head. I had to drill out the vent holes a little in order to fit 1/2" screw-type grommets.

    Step 5. Put the heads on and tune up. I like to use the Tama washers - they hold tuning so well. As you can see, I always press on the center of the head and tune out the wrinkles. That's always a great starting point for tuning.

    Impressive Scooter. You assure us that anyone can do it. Thanks! Let's hope the money set brings you lots of money. LOL

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    Yeah, well, uh...

    I kinda sorta cut my finger when doing this resto. 6 stitches. Dumbass move while drilling out the name badges. Remember to REALLY clamp those badges down when drilling - the drill bit can bite in and spin the badge right into your flesh...





    Oh, and here's the Carvin.
