    Pink Oyster Pearl Wrap

    I agree! If I produced drum wrap, I'd totally try to be the first one to supply accurate pink oyster pearl. I'll share pics of the Walopus wrap when I have it. I sent him pictures of original pink oyster pearl drums and he agreed to make it as close as possible to the pics. Really impressive...

    1960s Ludwig Bearing Edges???

    Update: I measured incorrectly. My bearing edges are 30 degree round overs which is consistent with what I have read. Just finished re-doing the rack tom edges and they are much better.

    1960s Ludwig Bearing Edges???

    I have already trued the rack tom edge on a sanding table. The issue was not really visible in pictures, but there were some low spots on the rack tom. I couldn't tune wrinkles out of the head unless I choked it. Floor tom is less severe so it wouldn't be the end of the world to keep it as is...

    1960s Ludwig Bearing Edges???

    I posted about my Super Classic recently. Basically a 1959 with a 1962 bass drum. I am recutting the bearing edges because they really need it. Especially the rack tom. Currently, all of the edges are 45 degree roundovers. -Would those be original or would these drums have come with 30 degree...

    Pink Oyster Pearl Wrap

    Sure thing! I did look around before deciding on this one. Bum Wrap and Precision both have Pink Oyster, but theirs are scans. I got a free sample from Precision and it basically looks good from a distance. Ordered a sample from Bum Wrap and never received it. To my understanding, Walopus is...

    Pink Oyster Pearl Wrap

    I ended up ordering from Walopus drum wrap. I sent pictures of the one I was looking for and asked him if he could try and make it as close as possible to the picture and he said yes. Maybe I'll post it when I receive it.

    Info on my Ludwig Super Classic?

    Thanks Mike! I was able to find him by searching for him in the Ludwig Vintage Snares and Drums group. Just messaged him on facebook to see if he is willing to help.

    Info on my Ludwig Super Classic?

    The wrap does not go inside of the plies. When I take the heads off of all of the drums, they all have remanence or the original wrap inside of the shell seam.

    Info on my Ludwig Super Classic?

    You are one of two people to mention the grommet. I would not have thought to look for that, but definitely makes sense.

    Info on my Ludwig Super Classic?

    The seller did specify that the drums were re-wrapped and you can tell that they were in person. When you take off the heads the remanence of the original wrap is visible inside of the shell seams. The re-wrap job is not the best, but not terrible.

    Info on my Ludwig Super Classic?

    The text post is under the pic of the full kit. Wasn't sure how to get text and pics in the same post.

    Info on my Ludwig Super Classic?

    I purchased this "1959 Super Classic" on Reverb not too long ago (I won't name the seller before giving them a chance to correct their mistakes). I've owned it for a couple of months and have FINALLY gotten the time to inspect it more thoroughly. My main source of confusion is the bass drum...

    How is drum wrap produced?

    Does anyone know of any videos or pictures or detailed written explanations of how drum wrap is made? I've always wondered, but I cannot seem to find anything online. Especially curious about the oyster pearl and sparkle finishes. If anyone has the answer I'd be interested to hear.

    Live performance of my band with "Fudwig" drums

    Below is a link to a performance of an original tune by the leader of my band. I'm playing what I call "Fudwig" (fake Ludwig) drums which are just Pearl Maxwins wrapped in black oyster Pearl with a Ludwig Rail consolette. Snare is a Ludwig 1959 COB supraphonic. Tosco 18" crash as my main ride...

    The Drum Mystery in The Beatles' Most Beautiful Song

    I heard/read that it was Paul. It does sound a lot like Ringo, but I think that Paul took a lot of inspiration from Ringo. Paul is also a lefty playing a righty kit just like Ringo which could also contribute to a very similar approach to the drums. Also, the drums sound like the black oyster...

    Pink Oyster Pearl Wrap

    I recently purchased a 1959-1960 transition badge Ludwig kit. It had been re-wrapped in black gloss by a previous owner and I don't love the look so I am going to re-wrap it again. I would like to wrap it in Pink Oyster Pearl, but different wrap maker's/sellers seem to have different versions...
