Hey guys, inspired by my desire for a cool, period correct finish for my new 62' Slingerland bop kit, I have negotiated a deal with the wonderful folks over at Precision Drum to do a short run of "Mardis Gras Pearl". Despite the fact that Delmar was pushing for 60 sheets, Precision convinced them to run as few as 20. However, the 20 will need to be presold before Precision will place the order, so as not to get stuck with them. While the modern materials are a LITTLE different, it's VERY close to the original Slingerland/Gretsch/Rogers wrap. I've seen the short run they did for Steve Maxwell, and the wrap is beautiful. Andrea at Precision told me the cost will be $160 per sheet , (same as their Capri pearl), and once we have 20 (or more) sheets sold, they'll place the order. For reference, a 12/14/18 bop kit can be done with 2 sheets (24x54), and a 22" or 24" bass drum will require a sheet and a half. Additional sizing info can be found on Precision's web site. So, whatcha think ? Anybody in ?
