FDP Forum / I'd Hit It! - Drums and Percussion / Drum Wrap

I'm thinking about buying some pre cut drum wrap and recovering my kit. I have to admit, I'm a little skeered!

Anybody here ever tackled this before? And, where is the best place to buy good quality, precut wrap?

Anyone have any idea of what it will cost? Current set up is 14 x 5 (or maybe 5 1/2" SD, 22 X 18 BD, 16X16 FT and 8, 12 and 13 inch rack toms.

I love that Slingerland white pearl, that they had out, around 2007ish?? (It may have been white marine pearl, I dunno? And, it may be the exact same white pearl they've used for years and years?) I've seen other white pearl that I do not like at all. So, I'll admit, I am very picky.

Any help, will be very much appreciated!

It’s good to be skeered.

Many moons ago, I attempted recovering 8" and 10" rack toms. Unfortunately, in my haste, I didn’t do a good enough job preparing the shells, and ended up with some minor imperfections — they weren’t really noticeable to anyone except me, but it *still* bugged me. I don’t have the patience for sanding.

My only advice is to take your time and to consult FDPer BlondeStrat, who did an admirable wrapping job

Thanks garp! You're right, BlondeStrat does excellent work!! After seeing his work and hearing about your experience, I'm even more skeered! Not sure I've got the guts for this task?

I think you should try it at least once — as long as you’re not experimenting on a truly vintage kit that you might accidentally devalue.

For the record, I also tried my hand and guitar refinishing in the past, and ultimately realized that there are others out there who do it much better than me. But I’m glad that I learned about filling, priming, wet sanding, etc.
