  • Black is the new White - I blame Herl

    In the thread about black and white kits, Herl mentioned painting shells. I have a PD-100 and some PD-120s that are white, so I decided to give it a try. It came out really nice and matches the rest of the kit well.

    It took me longer to get the hardware on and off than it did to do the actual painting. I used some blue tape to mask the trim and badge and all it took was a single coat.

    And while I had it apart, I added a rim trigger to the PD-100!

    The picture does not do justice to how shiny and sexy this looks now. Bothe the shell and the mount took the color great. Try this at home kids and post your results!

    I think the picture looks pretty good. I bet it is like getting a new drum trigger all over again.

            Stay tuned for scenes from the next episode of "This Old Drum Kit," starring Michael Render.

            Looks great. It's no revolving blossom of vintage e-drum triggers, but it's nice.

                    I don't think Superman will like the green very much - pretty damn slick looking if you ask me. Nice job.

                            After removing the head and basket i pushed the badge a little from the inside hole to make a gap and then inserted a small flatblade screwdriver wrapped in a thin cloth and just prised carefully little by little from the top getting deeper under until i could get the fingers behind and pull, then peel off the remaining sticky foam by pushing with the thumb and restick with strong double sided tape.

                            Bottom trim stays on.

                            Get the wrap join behind the bracket.

                            Took 20 mins. The badge is thin and bendy so u have to be V carefull.

                            The green pearl is a rich deep colour (not flashy) not everyones choice but i like it. Burnt burl and black glitter are nice too, i'm doing the whole kit, all my diy pads took the wrap with no probs. Works out &#163;10 a drum. Changing the colour does give you a different feel to the kit.
