DRUMS REPAIRED FOR QUAY

altTHIS SET WAS MISSING LOTS OF PARTS AND THE OLD WRAP WAS ALREADY REMOVED. SO I SANDED IT, PUT TWO COATS OF STAIN ON IT, PUT TWO COATS OF CLEAR ON IT. GOT SOME NEW EVANS HYDRAULIC HEADS AND SOME USED BASS DRUM HEADS, THEN PUT IT BACK TOGETHER WITH THE PARTS THAT WERE AVAILABLE. GOT ABOUT $300 TOTAL IN PARTS AND LABOR IN IT BUT I MUST SAY IT LOOKS GOOD AND SOUNDS GREAT.

Prompt responses, free shipping I couldn't ask for more. Not only did Wild Bills take care of the shipping. I was on eBay and found the same sized gothic radius for 60 dollars more. Can't beat that!
Thanks Bill

STARCASTER/PULSE SET

 I BOUGHT THIS DRUM SET FROM WILD BILL AND AM COMPLETELY SATISFIED. THIS WAS A 6 PIECE SET THAT WILD BILL KEPT WITHIN MY BUDGET. SOME OF THE HARDWARE WAS LIGHT DUTY AND THE CYMBALS WERE BEGINNER LEVEL, BUT I WILL UPGRADE THESE LATER. I AM A 50 YEAR OLD WHO HAS NEVER OWNED OR PLAYED A DRUMSET, BUT I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO. I HAVE ALWAYS FOUND MYSELF KEEPING TIME WITH THE MUSIC ON TABLE TOPS OR WHEREVER. I AM NOW IN THE POSTION TO BUY A SET AND SO THAT IS WHAT I DID. WILD BILL SPENT ALOT OF TIME WITH ME SHOWING HOW TO SET UP THE DRUMS AND TAKE THEM DOWN. HE EVEN THREW IN 2 PAIRS OF STICKS AND A DRUM KEY. I WILL GO BACK TO SEE WILD BILL WHEN I AM READY TO UPGRADE, BUT FOR NOW I AM HAPPY LEARNING HOW TO PLAY ON THIS GREAT SOUNDING DRUM SET. THANKS, WILD BILL.

LUDWIG DRUMSET RESTORATION

altI TOOK AN OLD 80'S LUDWIG ROCKERS DRUMSET TO WILD BILL FOR A COMPLETE RESTORATION. THIS DRUMSET BELONGED TO MY SON AND HE PLAYED THEM WHILE AT PERMIAN HIGH. WHEN HE WENT INTO THE ARMY HE LEFT THE DRUMS AT MY HOME. WELL AS THE YEARS PASSED THE DRUMS SAT IN THE BARN AND THE RATS HAD THIER WAY WITH THEM. SOME NEIGHBOR KIDS SAW THE DRUMS AND ASKED IF THEY COULD BORROW THEM AND THEY GOT TORN UP EVEN MORE. THESE DRUMS WERE ARE RUSTY AND GRIMMY AND THE WRAP WAS TORN OFF IN PARTS ON SEVERAL OF THE DRUMS. THE HEADS WERE ALL BEAT TO HECK. I TOLD BILL THAT I WANTED HIM TO RESTORE THESE DRUMS LIKE NEW. WELL HE DID JUST THAT AND TOOK ALL THE PARTS OFF THE DRUMS, REMOVED THE OLD WRAP FROM ALL 8 DRUMS AND GLUED NEW WRAP ON THEM, BONDING THE WRAP TO THE SHELLS CREATING RESONANCE IN THE WRAP AS WELL. HE WAS ABLE TO MATCH THE ORIGINAL COLOR. HE POLISHED ALL THE LUGS, REMOVED RUST AND POLISHED THE RIMS, REPLACED PARTS AS NEEDED AND PUT ON NEW REMO BLACK SATIN HEADS. THE DRUMS CAME OUT LOOKING GREAT AND SOUNDING FANTASTIC. HE POLISHED OUT ALL THE ZILDJIAN CYMBALS THAT HAD BADLY TARNISHED TO A BLACK COLOR AND MADE THEM BRIGHT AND SHINY. HE GOT ALL THE RUST AND GRIME OFF THE STANDS AND OTHER HARDWARE.

I WILL BE GIVING THESE DRUMS BACK TO MY SON, SOON. AND THIS WILL BE AN EMOTIONAL EVENT THAT NEITHER ONE OF US WILL EVER FORGET. THANKS, WILD BILL FOR DOING SUCH A GREAT JOB ON THIS MONSTER SET, IT WAS WORTH EVER PENNY.
