Default Who (or is it "whom") do you trust?

So, having experienced some good and some freekin' horrible business deals with the big name drum work shops ... I have one question:

Who do you recommend to do your color matching rewraps on your vintage drums???

I realize most of us do it ourselves. Heck, I have done lots of rewraps. But, I have a 14 floor that really needs to be color matched and wrapped. I would like for a seriously good company to pull that one off.

Please weigh in on this as I need some advice.

Subscribing to this one... if I can't find (or afford) the Champagne Sparkle pieces to match my Downbeat snare, I'll be looking for someone that can pull it off. It's aged gently, but still aged, and new wrap just wouldn't look right along side it.

Good choice of topics...

Default Re: Who (or is it "whom") do you trust?

When it comes to "Who vs Whom" think of the the pronouns "him and her" for "whom" and "he and she" for "who"

So...."Whom do you trust?" = "Do you trust him/her"?

Or:

"Who is trustworthy?" = "Is she/he trustworthy?"

Consequently, most people use the phrase (incorrectly) "Who do you trust?"...which equates to "Do you you trust she/he?"



P.S. I have heard many good things said for Precision Drums ability to computer match colors -EXACTLY....but, of course, you pay a higher price. I have had no personal experience in this or with Precision Drums, btw.....to whom it may concern!

Olugger, my man. I sincerely appreciate the tongue in cheek response. I have put in an easy chair in the side of my mouth just to ensure my tongue is comfy there.

I must concur with Precision as the guys to go to if you're not going to do it yourself.

If it's strictly an issue of color matching, you might check out the custom ColorWraps from drummaker.com. They have a vast spectrum of shades. They'll lend you a set of swatches (with a $100 deposit) and you can try to find a perfect match. I've never used them, but I know Jaye has raved about them.
