Really hard to photograph the finish is so high gloss the pic doesn't do it justice but I have to say
it's quite beautiful. Thank you Mark and Ace and everyone else that put this together. It's a Party!

I'm glad everyone is happy with the results. Not sure I'd attempt such a thing again anytime soon, but in the end you guys pulled together (with a little help from Andrea) and made it happen...Congrats, and good luck with your builds !

Does anyone have a spare piece big enough to wrap a 13 X 9 Gretsch tom?

The wrap looks great! My shell arrived at PDC on Thursday. Can hardly wait to get it back! I'm thinking we should start another thread to post completed drums.

My shell is wrapped, but they are adding the butt plate, logo, and tone control today. I should get the drum about Wednesday. I love all of the little specks in the picture. I hope I have Rogers t-rods somewhere. Ace

Exactly!! You guys should have jumped on this like the rest of us!!


I did but I only got 2 sheets and should have got 3. Thinking about doing a 24 kick.

With this success, I wouldn't be surprised if they did a 2nd run sometime. Especially after we show pics of finished drums. Ace

P.S. Also, I wonder how this wrap will match with older drums? I just got a snare, so no problem. I bet they go fine though.

I would imagine it would match the later less busy version that Rogers had just fine which I actually like better than the first type . I wonder if they will do another run of this in the future or not .

I wanted to wait until I got the snare shell back and show the finished drum. I couldn't wait though. Smile from ear to ear. Ace

P.S. This shell looks more like maple than birch to me. Don't know though.
P.P.S. This picture makes the shell look darker. In the E-bay picture, the fade was much worse. Look how uneven the shell sits. It didn't even have the Script Logo.
