If thats a 26" its the only pic Ive seen on this site of a 26". I was told they even made a 28" which Ive never even seen one. The new drum head graphics are way cool. Never saw that one.

Probably the coolest bass drum there ever was! John C, who did the artwork?

The Most Unique 26" Bass Drum - artwork


The "57 Chevy" head was custom made by Vintage Logos in Cincinnati, OH. It was made in 2004. I worked with Shawn, and I encourage anyone and everyone to go to him for a bass drum head, either custom or one of his stock models. The last contact info I have for him is 513-351-0075. email: sales@[sign in to see URL].

We searched around until we found a photograph of a 57 Chevy looking straight into the front of it. I wanted it to look like the car is coming at you. Shawn changed the color to green to nearly match the green sparkle pearl on the drum (he says he can make the car any color). We sized the car so that the headlight was an exact fit for a 4" chrome Holz. I found a small battery powered flourescent light that I could lay inside the drum so the headlight would look like it was on!

As you can see, it looks incredible.

Yep, great story, great drum. I especially like the 3-D Chevy badge on the side.

Super cool John! I have used VintageLogo for a Journey tribute band bass head. Shawn is great to work with & has a super fast turn around. Recommended! emoticon

Not to take the thread off topic, but my nomination for "best use of a firebell" [sign in to see URL]

audio is not so great, but the best clip I could find.
