I finally found some drums that (kind of) match the dreadnought!

11/13/26" from the late 1940s. It'll do... For now.

Love that Dreadnought FT. I have a similar Leedy FT, but mine must have been made just after the war when they went back to the metal rims...

Just two questions: What are you soaking your parts in, and what's the name of your cat?

Nice, that's a cool drum!

I soaked the parts in vinegar for a while, and then scrubbed them. I think I then polished with MAAS polish. Her name is Kastrina.

Isn't that what they do to male cats?
