  • Shell Pack offers?

    I am a custom shell builder in the making. If I were to sell a couple of shell packs on this forum for DIY e-drum use, what would be the most popular shell sizes? I was thinking (depth x diametre) 12x14 w/ hoops for the bass, 4-6x12 (2-3) for snare and larger toms and 4-6x10 (2) for smaller toms. This is going by roland specs here. Don't ask me for shells now. It'll be a month or two before I consider doing this. I might pop up and sell an odd shell here and there. The wood will probably be birch if it matters. Pricing, I don't know yet as I'm looking for a cheaper source of veneer.

    Popular sizes would probably be the sizes of mesh heads readily available.
    Wood doesn't really matter with E-drums but a nice finish (different from the boring Roland) or custom finishes probably would be a hit.

      Yeah. I was thinking more just the bare shells and leave the finishing, drilling and edges to the builder, maybe sell a shell pack with exotic veneer as well. I could also finish the shells myself too and sell them.

        how much would you charge? though any shells for a v-drum conversion project will do, even those cheap imported ones. they're easy to saw in half if required, popular sizes for v-drums are 8", 10" and 12" it doesn't really matter, i recently bought complete a set of shells which included these sizes including rims for about £80.00, leaving me with two oversized ones i sold.

          Ok

          Yeah sounds good but i can get a 2nd hand tom for £10 and i've got the shell, hoops, lugs, lug pins and maybe even the wrap can be re used ... oh! also the bottom head can be re used and maybe t -cut.

          Buying seperate costs a fortune and we are all for saving money on a diy unless it's a special project. any shell is good enough cos we are not looking for resonance etc.

          Also we are saving trees by recycling but good luck anyway.

              It's not going to be a regular thing; I might just pop up with one or two kits and various shells.
