Default Re: Music 4 Mutts raffle kit

Thank you everyone for your nice comments!

Wish I could post another picture but Im at a dead end with the tension rod problem. Problem is we have two maybe three different size threads on the rods Im using. I dont want to mix them up, they should all be the same on the kit so when you change heads it wont matter which rod you use. I did not think of this problem ahead of the project. So now I need to purchase new swivel nuts (inserts) and rods that all match, problem is I dont know which ones to get and whether or not all of my lugs are the same. Some of the swivel nuts have a hexagon shape at the base and some are square, and they dont seem to all work together. So now I am considering on purchasing all new lugs, (the Slingerland reproduction ones) and new rods to solve the problem, another 108.00. And now I can see wanting new hoops next, geez what did I get myself into LOL!

PS, the base drum is fine, all tension rods work with the lugs perfectly!

Well, since work is slow I dont have cash for drums at the moment. So I took all the lugs off and figured out which rods went with each lug. I ended up short by seven matched lugs/rods so the 13 has one size and the 16 has the other. I figured heads are usually replaced one at a time so mixing up the rods should not be an issue.
Sorry for the poor quality picture, my digital camera took a dump on me so I am forced to use my phone to take pictures. But, here they are with all the hardware that I have bolted on them. I hope I can get my music store to donate or discount some new heads for the kit, I need to pay them a visit. Next, I can work on some inlays for the bass drum hoops but until I get the rest of the parts and heads Im at a dead end. I am looking at having some badges made for the kit, they would have the Music 4 Mutts logo but I dont want the grommet to interfere.

Jeff, are you talking rod length or thread count ?

How about a tack on strip badge ?

Jeff,

If you do get some badges made, any chance of getting an extra one made for my badge collection? I will pay for it of course...

Cheers

Rod, I sure will send you one. I have a couple others you can have if you want them, I can send those regardless if I get ones made or not.

One is an Apollo, oval shape that says Worlds Supreme Quality Made in Japan, black with gold print.
The other is a Pearl Professional DX Series rectangular badge, silver with black print.
Those and the M4M badge will be free for you, no exceptions. I called a trophy shop and talked about making a badge. I also sent a jpeg of the logo and she said no problem, estimated about 5.00 each.
