Wow, a thread brought back from the dead.

After using the drum head for a while now I can say my mirror is much less dusty than without it and can go much longer between cleanings. I was using the Dave K. recommendation of the clean terry cloth towel draped directly on the mirror surface but never felt comfortable doing it.

I also made a cover out of Plexiglass, cut with a table saw & a router.
