    Maybe, although staining it myself would be a whole lot cheaper I want to focus the little amoumt of money I can spend each month on actual upgrades.. The next things I have my sights on is: - New ride cymbal (want a 3-zone one and at least as quiet as a pcy-155 but bigger than 15") - New crash cymbal x2 (will probably be a couple of pcy-155 if I can find a ride I like) - Custom bassdrum reso head (wanted one ever since I got into drumming) Then I'll keep my current mono Alesis DM5-cymbals as effect cymbals like splash, china and such, just because I can.

    Why not just order a dark wood wrap? Check out Bumwrap drums as they have many on their site to choose from plus they can do custom wraps for no extra cost. I got my American walnut dark wood wr from there and it's superb quality.

    Yeah just the hoops looked weird. I hate having this feeling that I want to do something with my drums but I don't know what! I don't need any more toms,I habe already planned to upgrade the cymbals as the next purchase for the kit. I just want to do... Something to make it unique, the current finish is still great and I'm sure that if I would go and change it I would probably regret it. I still have that bassdrum-mounted cymbal arm to attach though, with a little luck it'll be enough to satisfy my need for modding..

    My vote is for all stain. Just the hoops looks pretty gross. But it could just be the god awful white balance of the original photo that's throwing it off.

    Mike, sorry to read that you are spending some time at the hospital. I know time passes so slowly there.... Wish you a quick recovery.

    Here's a quick render from your picture. Forgive the crudeness ... I didn't spend much time on this, but it should help a little.

    I'm still curious about how the bassdrum would look with dark stained hoops. With a little luck I could unwrap the hoops without ruining the wrap so that I could re-attach the wrap if I would be disappointed with the outcome.

    Well the only pics I find of finishes in darker wood tones are pics of the "walnut glaze" finish, and that basically exactly what I had in mind! Although I always have such a hard time making decisions. The Satin Natural looks great, Walnut Glaze looks great, and Copper Sparkle looks great. I would also love to design some personal, vintage-looking badges and a custom reso head for my bassdrum, but I've got the bassdrum head covered already

    Here's the link to a bunch of photos: http://tinypic.com/useralbum.php?ua=...EMt5ojOw%3D%3D I'm not completely done with the A2E conversion yet so there's no pics with the kit all set up unfortunately.

    I'm hospitalized at the time being. But I have a TinyPic-album with a bunch of pictures of the kot, I donno if any of them is good enough, but I'll try to find the link. You prefer the Satin Natural wrap? It is indeed a lovely finish, I was just toying with the idea of staining the drums to make them more unique and staining is probably one of not many things I could pull off, haha
