Thumbs up

If you guys have any questions for Jeff,Drop them here.
Picked him up at the airport last night, he will be here for a month.

We are almost to market with the next generation of the BRONZE
drums!
These will be completely different than the "spirit 0f 2002" drums.

Like I said,I'll have photos for you guys FIRST.
These will have Hand rubbed oil finnishes, a silver like finnish, and a black.
These finnishes will change over time and can be mixed and mached.

I'll post more about the project and what its been like working w/ Jeff.

Time to make drums..........

Hey, Charles.

Hey, Charles.


Pete,

Can you explain what you mean by "these finishes will change over time", do you have other finishes planned besides those?

-Charles

P.S. Be sure to post PICS =D

Those are the colors we will start with.
There will be some finnish options that
like a bronze statue, can change depending on
how its handled, oxidaton, weather where you live,
like a statue.
Statues and other bonze work are "sealed" in different ways.
Most of the drums will have this treatment and will not change
overe time.
options are good.
I would love one of these that changed as it ages,
a real work of art.
Very old world meets the newest technology.
These shells ring with such a pure tone, no funky overtones or harmonics.

I can't wait for you guys to hear them!!

The site has some pics now, I'll have more pics here soon.
