I know I’m going to get some “interesting” input over this “vintage” snare… B/O Badge, probably early 70’s, picked up for a song badly corroded, so I decided to experiment… Can you tell which football teams I’m a fan of?
Had this done at a local (but large) shop in West Palm Beach (Tolliver’s). In one pic you can see the board I mounted the lugs on… $80 and a couple weeks to a month turnaround. It was an experiment, and I would give them more guidance next time. They bead blast the shell and parts, then bake on a coating. There’s a couple small bubbles on the bearing edge but I didn’t bother to sand it.
I picked up a power coated supra (shell only) for parts a few years back… which gave me the idea. I’ve seen a couple but none with the lugs and rims, though. Time will tell how long the coating with withstand rim shots….
