Similar to some batches of Ruby Strata.

BTW here is the "Element/Jammin Sam" version of Psychedelic Red...since we're showing them all.

The top one is just a finish Ludwig had for a short while a few years ago. Unfortunately my years are starting to run together so i don't know exactly when.

The bottom drum is a 50's WFL that someone wrapped in Bumwrap faded psych red. Bumwrap sells a few different versions of psych red including this one, which is a faded version of the original. Bumwrap scans original finishes into a computer to create their wrap. They must have borrowed a pretty faded drum to make that version.

When I re-wrapped my tenors, I went with Jammin Sam's Psych red. Not "bowling ball" in pattern.
