A freshly baked suitcase bass drum by 'Reclaimed by 55DC'. Dated at 70 - 90 years old, back before the advent of postcodes (and GDPR), a young Miss Edgar toted this suitcase for many years. With original baggage lables, we can say that she lived in Motherwell, known as Funkytown in these parts. As such, we just had to allow for more cowbell...
Features as follows...
-Reclaimed vintage brown hard style suitcase.
-Reclaimed and cut-down 13 inch, 5 lug shell for easy tuning, with new bearing edges cut at a sharp 45 degrees for maximum punch, finished with orange semi gloss.
-Low mass lugs and extended tension rods to allow full tunability.
-12mm plywood internal hidden casing for full solidity.
-Tried and tested floor tom legs to front to eliminate bass drum creep, because nobody likes a creep...
-Cowbell and percussion holder insert, for those early 20th century vibes.
-Ported to front with 4 inch Code port hole for extra protection.
-Used Evans HD Dry 13 inch head.
- Percussion and pedal not included.
Get in touch if you like what you see, plenty more to come!
All the love from 55DC.xxx
