Today I’ve spent the day in the workshop dismantling, cleaning, grinding, corrosion-removing, re-heading and re-tuning a kit belonging to a lovely guy who inherited it from his grandfather.
It’s been a total pleasure to work on a kit that obviously means so much to its owner. Although I quote timescales for my various levels of drum servicing, realistically I take as long as necessary at each level to give the best finish possible (in this case 10am-6pm so far!)
The time I take is one very good reason why I do pretty much all of my servicing work here, not to mention the mess and noise that comes from a thorough clean-up job.
Drummer, drum geek, reluctant blogger and eater of cheese!
