Hey guys... thanks for such a great thread. I joined this forum because of this thread and a couple others on making/fine tuning a UDS. I've been thinking about this for a while... finally bought a molasses drum for $25. A friend is taking the top off for me and I'll finish it up over the next couple of weeks.
Looking forward to asking questions as they come up during my project... we're also doing our first MOINK balls this weekend... :) Can't wait!
