Do any of these questions sound familiar:

  • Should I restore my drum even though it would alter the drum’s originality or should I leave it as is?
  • I’m not getting the sound I want from my vintage drum. Should I have the bearing edges recut?
  • What are the best materials and techniques to use in restoring my drums?
  • Should I try to do the restoration myself or have a professional do it?
  • How do I glue down the seam that’s coming up on the wrap finish of my drum?
  • There are hairline gaps between the reinforcement hoops and shell of my Radio King snare drum. Should I glue and clamp, use a wood filler, or leave it alone?

I can help you answer these and other questions concerning your next restoration project.

As a restoration technician for 20 years, I have repaired thousands of vintage drums and offer you extensive, expert experience. To view a sample of articles that I have written about vintage drum restoration click here. These articles also appear in the “Collectors’ Corner” column of Modern Drummer magazine.

The fee structure for a telephone consultation is $25 for the first 15 minutes. Additional 5 minute blocks are $5 each. Longer consultations are also available. The cost of one consultation is small compared to the possible loss of your time and money due to mistakes and miscalculations. Getting the right advice is a smart investment. Your drums are worth it. Call today to schedule an appointment: toll free (800)729-3111 or (641)693-8691

Wishing you all the best,
