Bass drum rebuild for the Cambridge Symphony Orchestra

Just finished up rebuilding this old bass drum for the Cambridge Symphony.  This 16″x32″ Ludwig began it’s life as a big marching bass drum, built in 1961 and had definitely seen plenty of miles.  To fix it up for orchestral use, we stripped the old finish, repaired a lot of damage to the shell, hoops and lugs, gave it a mahogany veneer, cut new bearing edges and added some custom mounting hardware for the CSO’s new stand.  It looks and sounds fantastic!

A new take on an old design

Check out this acrylic rope-tension field snare we’re working on!  This is our prototype, and there is still some more work to do, but we’re really excited about how it’s progressing (particularly with the strand of blue LEDs we mounted under the batter side bearing edge).
