    Is the big drum supposed have the [email protected] name on one side?

    #58 54 days ago
    Quoted from bigd1979:

    Is the big drum supposed have the [email protected] name on one side?

    Yes because the back side isn't visible when installed

    Hmm..mine doesn't have anything..

    Quoted from bigd1979:

    Hmm..mine doesn't have anything..

    Ok I wasn't clear on what you're asking. I assumed yours had it on one side and what you were asking was if it should be on two sides.

    the emblem is optional. Mine doesn't have it either.
    I haven't decided what I'm going to put on mine. I'm leaning towards copying the same one you see But I'm also contemplating All my options.
    The pop bumper right next to it already has that same logo so part of me thinks something different would be a little more variety but I'd want it to integrate and blend blend. Two logos of the same thing right next to each other doesn't look bad to me at all.

    Welcome any suggestions!

    My set arrived today. Super fast shipment after payment. Looks to be great quality. Interestingly enough, also got an email today from my distributor on the exact same day as I received the stage mod set, that my LE would be shipping in 3 weeks or so. Everything seems to be aligning!!

    And yes... the Drum emblem was an extra option that I chose at the time of payment. I think it was pretty clear, but if you read the message quickly, you might have missed it.

    I'm happy about that, Tony

    Hello everyone, the last orders have been sent today. Since there were a few users who apparently changed their minds or did not respond to my email, a few upgrade kits are still available. If you are fast, you don't have to wait a long time

    #64 43 days ago

    Just wanted to update...The upgrade kit from SVEN was awesome!!!

    Everything fits perfectly and really brings the stage alive!

    Very very well sized...I mean mm perfection and tolerances and very strong rigid build quality. You won't be disappointed!!!

    Shipping was also fast and very secure all the way from Germany to Texas!

    You said it perfectly, the backstage just looks alive!!
    You'd never know it was a mod .. looks like it's from the designers of the pin. A very generous and complete set that is integrated intelligently with very little effort to install... well done, Sven.

    And excellent photography (as usual) from you fooflighter , clearly you have an eye for the right shot down to the detail... angle, focus, timing, logo on the monitor. Good stuff!

    Many thanks to you guys

    Just now got my Stage Kit and Drum kit from Sven. Very fast shipping from Germany. Very nice detail. Worth every dollar.

    Very nice looking mod. I already have Lior’s speaker mod, so this one would not work with the other. But…I do love the silver stage framing for the lights. If I could just buy the framing for the lights, I certainly would. If you ever decide to offer the silver framing for the lights by itself, please PM me. I am sure others that own Lior’s speakers would also like the silver lights framing.

    #72 42 days ago

    I am also +1 for a thumbs up on this mod. Very fast shipping to the USA and easy install. Looks great - Thanks!!

    #73 41 days ago

    So I had already purchased Liors stage/speaker kit but Sven covered areas Lior did not in the trelles kit around the lights and the speaker next to the screen is far more effective than Liors back speaker. Liors speakers are much nicer up close, but Sven does an amazing job for the price. Moreover, I love Sven’s drum kit mod more than Liors new pop bumper set. Accordingly, I cancelled the kit I had on order. This is Sven’s kit with Liors amp and side speaker mods. Best of both worlds.

    Most importantly, if you only buy one kit, get Sven’s. You won’t be sorry. Great look, design, value and craftsmanship. Don’t miss the drums.

    +1 for me. I also have Lior’s stage dress up kit and really would like to just buy the silver light surround/framing pieces if that were an option. Put me on that list if it becomes available!

    If all you want is the light surround framing you might also consider the Mezelmods stage dress up kit, which is cheaper than both Sven and Lior’s kits. It comes with the light framing that is identical to Sven’s other than it is grey instead of silver. The speakers are not as nice IMO. I have both and just waiting to get my pin (in 3 weeks!). Then I will choose which one I install and might sell the other one. I can post photos of both later if you are interested.

    #76 41 days ago

    Shipping alone from Germany to USA would be more than the mezel mods stage dress up kit scaffolding parts.. so maybe that is best solution if that's all you want.

    #77 41 days ago

    The silver frame will not fit with LIORs back speaker. You have to chose. While I think LIORs back speaker is beautiful, it’s kind of lost in the background. The silver Trellis and the speaker attached has far more presence for me. I like the additional speaker cover for the left spotlight as well.

    Will the speaker above the drumsticks work with pinstadiums??

    #79 39 days ago

    As everyone else’s said, easy install and great fitment. I have bought a lot of 3D printed parts over the years and these seems nicer than most. The design of this kit is the best of all the kits I considered. Also the packaging was very thoughtful to ensure it arrived from Germany to the US unbroken. That’s greatly appreciated.

    Ran across Moomert1 YouTube video on this... Thought it would be a nice addition to this thread..

    #81 36 days ago
    Quoted from Anubis330:

    Will the speaker above the drumsticks work with pinstadiums??

    Yes, it totally works with pin stadiums with Magna Mounts. LIORs works with pin stadiums as well but you cannot use the xeno mounts. You can with Svens kit however. My picture shows them with the pin stadium lights

    #82 36 days ago
    Quoted from Anubis330:

    Will the speaker above the drumsticks work with pinstadiums??

    Yes it will! I just installed and can confirm this kit works perfectly with Pinstadiums. I was even able to re-install the xeno mounts, which didn't work with Lior's setup. The trellis addition is a huge improvement as well and so far I haven't had any stuck balls coming out of the amp, which was another issue I was having with Lior's kit. For me this was the perfect setup, love it!

    Thanks Sven !! Great work to those following jump on what’s left !

    Just a quick note to say thank you so much! Easiest mods to install! They are great and my wife enjoyed looking at the foreign newspaper! Congratulations to Jrmgard and Rudolf, looks like a really nice couple. ❤️

    Awesome mod with some great follow up to those who have received and installed the kit! Can’t wait to get mine which should be here any day now! Will definitely follow up with another great testimonial I’m sure

    Very fast, well package. Everything perfect. Great communication with Sven.
    The kit fit perfectly even with the convolux set. Very easy to install (few minutes). I'm very happy with this mod.
    Thanks Sven for this perfect job.

    Thanks to everyone for the nice posts and pictures. I'm really happy that my MOD has now been installed in many Guns N Roses pinball machines all over the world. Have a lot of fun with it

    I don't know about you guys, but without this MOD something is really missing, right?
    So if you also want an "Ultimate Stage Kit" for your Guns N Roses LE / CE, just write to me via "PN" and give me your email address directly, thank you.

    FAQs
    I have already been asked a few times what the 2 small spacers are for.
    You simply swap these for the original when installing the Traverse. These are a little shorter,
    because otherwise the screws would be too short due to the construction of the traverse

    Here is the link to the installation again:

    Just a heads up for anyone ordering the drum kit; even though every picture shows the bass drum with the GnR logo, the actual mod does not include this and the bass drum is just white on the front. If requested, Sven will provide a pdf with the image so you can print it yourself. Not what I was expecting, but the mod is very nice otherwise.

    Yes, I found this DIY extremely simple. ANyone can do it and there are plenty of variations to accomplish it...

    I used some heavier Avery "Thank you" card stock by Avery I had lying around and printed out the PDF on my laserjet. No printer settings were needed and it came out exactly right.

    I took some scissors and carefully trimmed it around the black outer ring so it was a clean, pretty circle.
    Did a test fit on the drum, and then the method I used to adhere it was a basic Glue Stick pen and applied glue to both the back of the logo and the drum "skin" and fit the logo.

    Easy.
