Super restoration example:
The owner of this bass drum faced a big problem. The bass drum had water damage. As a result, it could not be played. One of the reinforcing rings had rotted, and the bearing edge was – well, see the pictures. However, it’s vintage wrap finish matches the rest of the kit. Replacing the bass drum would result in the new wrap finish not matching the other drums.
The craftsman at Precision Drum Company custom fit a notched shell segment on which a new bearing edge could be cut. The segment was glued in place, then further reinforced with a conventional reinforcing ring. When a drum head is installed, the repair cannot be seen.
The broken inner linkage of this old Gretsch strainer rendered it useless. The expert machinist at Precision Drum Company fabricated a replacement part to save this strainer!
