Camco Project Last viewed: 34 minutes ago

I went to a local Sherwin Williams Paint store and had them mix a can of Minwax water-based stain. The color is called "Green Tea." Unfortunately they only mix a minimum of one quart so I have enough to stain another 100 drums. The whole can was about $12. Maybe I'll build a Keller/DW 12" clone to match...

Great call on the that recipe. Man, it looks awesome.

Here are the completed drums. These sound incredible! This is by far the best sounding 20" bass drum I've ever played. I'm hooked. Now, to find a 12" tom...

Late in on this one but colour in the lacquer was how they were done (as Stedi points out). I've got a similar potential project but just one moss green Oaklawn bass drum and a lot of odd formerly lacquered drums that may one day go green.

I've seen the occasional lacquered kit with an inlay. Certainly remember a black lacquer kit with a similar silver sparkle inlay. Probably just an ordering option. I wouldn't overthink it.

What's with the Camco inner shells painted black thing? Mine are afflicted with the same disease. Where can we find the person responsible for this atrocity? :)

Larryz, The black painted interior had me baffled too. I''ve got most of it off using a super sharp chisel (from new), very gently scraping it off. Clear lacquer underneath virtually untouched.

I guess it could be a throwback to when a lot of people were playing bottom head off and they thought black was more aesthetically pleasing. There were also a lot of drugs around at the time, I've heard.

I, too, have a Camco kit with the bass drum interior painted black. I'm not sure if the previous owner was stoned.....or just stupid.

A white moire kit I owned in the mid 1980's had interiors painted beige, ala Slingerland. That still baffles me, since the kit was in excellent condition at the time.
