Bearing Edges: I offer a variety
of different edges depending on the sound the drummer is going for. Example: 45 degree, 30 degree, round over edge, are just
a few. Couple of other important factors are placement of the edge on the drum, and the softness or sharpness of the edge.
These are critical elements of the overall sound of your drums. If you have any questions about bearing edges for your sound
please contact me I would love to hear from you. I have cut many edges over the years and I take great pride in my work. Ask
anyone who has ever had work done by me. Clients include, Curt Bisquera, Vinnie Colaiuta, Simon Phillips, Brendan Buckley,
Drum Paradise Rental kits, Matt Chamberlain, Kenny Aronoff, John "JR" Robinson, Joe Porcaro,
David Silveria, Gene Trautmann, John Dolmayan, and so on.
Painting: I can take care of your drum wrap needs as well as a custom paint finish. For wrap
jobs I do glue the wrap to the whole shell to keep a solid tone in the drum. I recommend doing this over just wraping around
the drum and taping the seam, that will lose some of the drums projection and sustain. As for painting and stains, I offer
several types of finishes. High Gloss, Satin, Oil Finish, and Staining. I will come as close as humanly possible to match
a piece to your existing set, of course there is variables to consider, fading of original color and normal aging of lacquer
and wood.. I will be posting some pics of these services in the very near future, so please check back soon.. Again
if you have any questions on these services please contact me.
