    Show me your 18” floor to kick conversions.

    I’ve got a 16x18 6ply Ludwig I’m going to convert, it’s got extra holes from something earlier done to it so it’s not a loss of a original shell. Just wanted to see how any others have turned out.

    Jammin Sam and Precision, same wrap supplier?

    I recovered a kit about 6 years ago with a wrap from JS. I'm adding a few new drums in the same color and would like to use Precision (not sold on the tape option).
