What's up with Up-Cycled drums? As TreeHouse Drums' owner owns a drum-n-guitar store, sometimes used pieces come in or he gets partial sets from damaged freight claims. Sometimes new drums' shells are damaged but the hardware is 100%; sometimes clean used hardware just gets lonely sleeping in parts bins. This kind of drumset has the same attention to detail and 100% quality guarantee like normal for typical new TreeHouse Drumsets but with a few parts from random sources. We're not talking about the broken toys crawling out from under Sid's bed, but A-Quality stuff that ought to be out there in the world; pay less for great one-of-a-kind drums!
Oh, and what's going on with "Starter Dough" as a color? The term comes from pulling aside a bit of dough for later or for your neighbor when you're making sourdough bread. This bread uses the goodies building up in the starter lump instead of new yeast to rise the new bread. Over time, the starter might take on a local flavor. Over the years, there would sometimes be a bit of quality expensive aniline dye in the bottom of the jar after coloring a drumset. Kept "just in case, some day," these remnants aren't enough for a full project, but mixed together, they make the same high-quality colorings TreeHouse is known for, but with recipes and proportions that can never be reproduced. Like a starter dough, these remnants get tossed in a jar and can be used for future projects. Instead of wasting this stuff down the drain, how's about a unique one-of-a-kind color for your bargain drumset? 7x10, 13x13, 7⅞x18, 5½x12; plied maple; satin wax.
