Post Painted Drums

Sorry for hogging up this board today.

For those of you in drum groups, are any of your drums painted with something on them? If so, why or why not?

I have numerous photos of old drum painted half blue and half red with a small yellow stripe down the center. Some of the drums have even got a "skirt" thing going around the drum hanging down. Does any body out there have in info on those type drums?

Really? Phrenology...that explains a lot.

For more on the red and blue painted drums check out Thos. Venum book, "The Chippewa Dance Drum"
