It's all of the small things!
Welcome to the "All the Small Things" Addition of Indoor Storm News
We get to see tons of the best made instruments in the world each day. You might say "Well, that could get old pretty fast". Yeah, right... but here is the thing. IT, the big IT that keeps us looking. IT keeps us interested, IT keeps us going. IT, is the small things, the details. Things only special builders think of, IT and their unrelenting pursuit of IT just keeps us in amazement. Every single piece we carry has something special about it, no doubt - heck that is why this newsletter exists! But this newsletter is focused on a few small things that equal = IT. And in fact, this is just TODAYS' List of IT items we have to share. Check back regularly and we are happy to tell you about the numerous items and builders with IT!

John Suhr's Fret Work

John has IT, when it comes to fret work he is an IT guy. Absolutely stunning and clean. Uncompromised craftsmanship with feel and quality in that top notch. The frets are always inset proper, the edges are more comfortable than your favorite pair of blue jeans and placed just right for the best playing you have done in some time. You just can't deny it.

Spaun Drum Co and Vinyl Washers

Way down here in the weeds of detail land is a small hardly noticeable detail that makes me smile from ear to ear. Brain at Spaun Drum Co wanted to make sure all of the lugs turned extremely smoothly and that the metal lugs would not rub off any of the fantastic powder coating on his custom drums. Enter the vinyl washer... Tiny detail, huge improvement. Click here to see our inventory of Spaun Drums!

New Orleans Guitar Matched Wood Covers

When building a guitar body, things you are obsessed about are; where will the electronics cavity be, to body rout or not and tons of little details. The builders at New Orleans have raised the bar by removing and using the same body wood as the electronics cover. I have it on very good authority that this is NOT easy. So excuse me while I bask in the glory of this fine woodworking. Click here to see our full inventory of New Orleans Guitars!

Brady Wood Grain

You can't mention fine instruments without giving praise to Mother Nature and the craftsmen who capture her intrinsic beauty in instrument. One of my new favorite capturers of this beauty is the Brady Drum Company from Australia. This wood shown above is Black Heart, the finish and wood work from Brady has made the hair stand up on the back of my neck more than once, today, while shooting these pictures...

Moon Drum's Wrap Technique

I will admit that I get tweaked out about my drum wraps. So there, I just like them special, every time. Isaac at Moon Drum uses a technique to minimize the amount of wrap at the over lap. He simply removes a slight edge (about a half an inch) so that there is never more than one ply of wrap beneath the drum head when it seats into the drum. This subtle difference makes Moon Drum an IT company. Click here to see our inventory of Moon Drums!

Briggs' Matched Maple

If the name Jack Briggs is not familiar to you now, it is only a matter of time. Jack is a North Carolina builder we have been watching for a long time and he is minding his details like few others. Again it is the small things that get our blood pumping. Like on the newest Avatar Special in Aqua. Behind the neck joint where the neck meets the bridge, notice the color and wood match quoting the beauty of the top to back tying it in making it one complete work of art.

Pork Pie, a little Extra Cushion

When it comes to a subject that is absolutely connected to me, a good place to sit while playing drums is of vital importance. The folks at Pork Pie have designed what is known as the "Big Boy" throne. It features a backside friendly contour and two extra inches of foam packed into what I can only describe as the friendliest seat this "Big Boy" has sat upon. Small detail, TONS OF EXTRA comfort!

Matched Headstocks

I am all about a matched headstock. True it is just a simple detail, paint the headstock the same color. What an impact that one simple detail can make. It just pulls the whole guitar together visually. A good friend of mine who is a matched convert describes the guitar as "incomplete" without the matching stock. Here in this example is a Fender Custom Shop Strat, Sonic Blue. The matching headstock immediately makes this Strat stand out from the pack and let everyone know that it is special.

All of our IT Builders
We at Indoor Storm see all of our builders as IT Builders. Frankly we wouldn't carry the products if we immediately didn't see IT. If we were to include all of the special features we see in our inventory, this newsletter would be a vast web site with tons of audio samples, video clips, and tons of amazing still photographs with full product descriptions; which makes me think to mention our web site where you can find all of the aforementioned items... http://www.indoorstorm.com/
