    Hi, I am about to attach an inlay to an 20'' 70s Ludwig bass drum hoop. Do I need to use contact cement, or will a regular super glue type (Loctite etc.) be enough for such a thin strip of wrap?

    Thanks in advance.

    + 1 for contact cement.

    Is contact cement the standard drum wrap cement (3M), or something else? Thanks for clarification......

    Yes that's the one.
    I finally opted for the 3M Fastbond 30, as it seems that it's the most recommended for this type of work.
    I suppose that any good, water-based contact adhesive would do the job fine though.
    I also used a staple gun on the seams.
