The fellow says he can't do it because the metal is to thin (16 gauge) and because it only has one opened end, which would cause "blowback". Is this guy yanking my chain because he doesn't want to do it...or is he being straight up with me? The reason I ask, is because, "somewhere", on one of these 500+ pages I thought I read where someone had their drum sandblasted.
Thanx for any feedback.....
I had my drum sandblasted and it turned out great. Paid $40 to have it done but it saved me a lot of headache.
