Drum Making DVD Review:
Guerrilla Drum Making DVD review...
you probably may have discovered, building drums is no easy
task. But it is a very rewarding building experience. How
much better does it get when you finally get to hear the beautiful
drums you built? It's hard to put into words. You have to
do it yourself...you'll see.
reason I created Drum
Building Secrets is because there is no comprehensive
home builders guide on the market. The forums on the subject
are ok for some areas of custom drum building, but you are
still at a loss most of the time. Because when you need a
solution to: bearing edges, snare beds, vendors for drum supplies,
stain, tools etc. etc. it's a massive time drain, and not
to mention, you will get conflicting advice. Even damaging
I went to work and after many months of interviews and building
custom drums. And soon enough, Drum Building Secrets was created.
then the Guerrilla Drum Making DVD comes along...
Guerrilla Drum Making DVD fills a void that needed to be filled.
A DVD version of how to build a custom made drum set.
pro's of this DVD:
covers a diverse range of drum building ideas, tips, and alternatives.
For example, you'll learn how to work with new or used wood
and acrylic drum shells. I haven't worked with acrylic before,
so this was really helpful. The sections on veneer drums and
exotic woods is excellent as well.
that's just the beginning. In addition I learned things about
how to wrap drums with striped wrap laminates, how to shoot
sunburst, and how to color-fade with aerosol.
section on how to create mirror high gloss finishes was really
good as well.
there were a lot of excellent tips and directions on how to
build with triple flanged, die cast, and wood tom and snare
found the guides to working with custom lugs, how to alternate
tension rod length for a unique customized look, and how to
design drums with multiple hardware options to be really helpful
Some of the directions are communicated very quickly so you'll
want to have a notepad and remote control handy to go back
over areas you weren't sure about.
DVD could have been organized a little bit better in terms
of sections. For example, if I wanted to find the section
on how to work with wood tom and snare drum hoops, it's not
on the menu. You have to remember what section it's under.
But that's nit picking.
actually picked up this DVD a couple of months ago following
a recommendation from a poster on a forum. Only managed
to watch it through once, but I think it's a great addition
to any builders library. Along with your information,
it's served to re-whet my appetite for doing something
on the building front. I've already refurbed a couple
of sets, but I like the idea of going a bit more custom
in the finish department instead of using wraps. When
I get round to it, I'll drop you some pics ...could
be a while yet though! All the best,
Guerilla Drum Making DVD brings a ton of ideas and alternatives
to use in your drum building projects. Most of them I hadn't
considered or even heard of until I saw the DVD.
a perfect companion DVD to Drum
Building Secrets. We have some detailed sections on things
like lug placement, bearing edges, and snare bed creation
in written form, and with detailed directions. And then you
can use some of the more creative ideas in the DVD on using
wrap, stain, or other finishing ideas to bring your kit up
a couple of notches.
the bottom line is this: If you want to bring your drum
building efforts to a whole new level and build an army of
raving fans, you should run, don't walk to get the Guerilla
Drum Making DVD.
is so much on this DVD that it will be used for many years
to come. And at $39.95, it's a bargain considering how much
information, tips, and advice you get on it.
like it so much I got them to give you a small discount. A
discount you can't find anywhere else...
