custom canister throne


I was thinking of building a custom throne since they are so pricey and rare. Jake Cardwell of C&C Drums offered to make the shell and handle the wrap for me (blue glass from precision). I would love to make it in the likeness of a rogers throne. I plan to use the "recipe for grey" for the inside. Does Anyone have any info on the bearing edge used? Or specific height width depth of these thrones? Also, this is a long shot, but my plan/idea is to fabricate a b&b lug into a hinge somehow. I asked Jim Petty if he was interested in doing this and I got a quick no. I don't think it is impossible and think it would be super cool. Somehow using the mounting tabs or tension rod hole/s for a standard hinge or possibly a magnetic hinge. Like I said this is completely a custom job. Unless I can find a cheap lean throne for around 600 shipped.

Re: custom canister throne


There is a gold sparkle one on ebay right now. Looking at the pictures it doesn't have a hinge, but it has two latches like on guitar cases. Bearing edge? The throne is 12" in diameter and 24" high.

Re: custom canister throne


No hinges on a cannister throne, just 2 latches to hold the top on.
No bearing edges on it either, the tube is just cut flat top and bottom.
There is a re-ring on the bottom, around 2" wide. A round piece of plywood sits on top of the rering (inside the tube) to form a bottom for the unit. It is inserted from the top and rests on the bottom rering. I think it's glued in place.
There is another rering at the top of the tube, recessed around 1/2". The top is made from a solid piece of wood, cut in a 12" circle. it has a piece of 3/8" (I think) plywood of smaller (11 1/4"?) diameter screwed to the bottom. This hides the folds and staples of the vinyl. Around an inch of dense foam for the padding.
This piece of plywood also keeps the top in place and not sliding off the tube.
There are 2 (1 1/2" wide) chrome-plated steel strips wrapped around the top and bottom as trim.

The throne tube itself is 22" high.
Good luck.

Thanks so much for the specs! Love the ROF because of you guys! Oh yeah, and the drums. I will most likely have C&C build me one. 450$ I provide the wrap.

Thanks again!

This is cool stuff. I've been thinking about getting one made, too, also in blue sparkle.
