Zickos Supersonic Refinish Last viewed: 7 minutes ago

I posted a thread a short while back about this kit when I bought it. It was originally white, hand painted with some awful flames and flowers like a prison tattoo. But it was complete, and all original except for the tom arms.

I plugged a few small holes and refinished the kit with malachite turquoise from Montana Gold, and sealed it. I also took the liberty of putting bearing edges on it by hand, with sandpaper. It came to me with pancake edges, no cut at all, and I was nervous to put the shells on a router table.

They came out sounding real nice. Here's a video I made of them: [ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmGE7d-vcas"]Zickos Supersonic Demo - Rare Prototype Drum Set - YouTube[/ame] made with a single overhead dynamic, no processing.

Ha, thanks! The shirt was an accident, I happened to wear that one the day I brought my camera to the studio.

again: COOOOOOOOL!

Also kind of confirms my "theory": There are many many ways to make good sounding drums.
