I posted something about this in the "Dream Drum Kit" thread, but I'd like to get as much input as possible on it. http://portplastics.com/plastics/Tubing/ClearCastAcrylicTubiSPA.html This company sells cast acrylic tubing, to exacting specs according to the web site. You can get wall thicknesses at .25" and .375" (and even thicker), with outer diameters up to 27". Just think, a DIY acrylic kit with no heating and forming of acrylic sheets. I put in a query some time ago about costs and to see if they have an remnants, but I have not received a reply so far. I think I'll just give them a call directly (they have a warehouse in Denver, about an hour north of me) when my patience grows thin. My thought was to use the .25" wall thickness for all drums, and to get 10", 12", 14", and 20" tubes. I could make a snare with the 14" tubing. They come in 6" lengths, so there would be plenty of material to work with. But what I'd like to do right now is to get a remnant, say a 12" OD tube, and make a single drum out of it using some good lugs (I was looking at using Adonis lugs) and heads to see if they would sound good.
