    Alreet folks. I’ve got a set (2 actually but that’s another story) of these that had a hard life before I got them. All of the toms have got either holes punched in or cracks in the shells. Can anyone recommend a place that can remove the old shells from the radial bridges (which are like a stave constructed ring with the mounting threads for the t rods in,) and replace the shells with something nice again, and perhaps refurbish the bridges a bit, some TLC needed there as well with all the dings and scrapes on them.
    TIA

    When the great Dave Carrera had to retire from drum making he sold his tooling etc to North drum company who seem to be doing some nice work, perhaps worth contacting them!

    Great drums those Peaveys, not all that popular because many hated the look, but we are supposed to judge by how it sounds, and they do make a good sound!

    Oddly enough I contacted North through Facebook and although they were interested in the project, were reluctant to take it on due to the fact that they wouldn’t be able to rejig the bridges if they knadged one removing it fro the current shell.
    And yes, you’re right, they do sound really, really good. I just wish the studio I got them from had looked after them a bit more then they’d not look quite so tired! I’ll keep looking, there might be a builder out there or a furniture repair shop might be able to do something?

    Try Highwood Drums and percussion , they do repairs as well as their own drums. I have one of their kits and I’m unbelievably happy with it.

    I believe the Radial Pros had plywood edges and their cheaper range had moulded synthetic ones. New wood ones could possibly be made by any company with a big enough wood turning lathe, and this could include companies which make solid / stave drum shells.
