Recommendations please
Would you put in the cost and effort to repair this wrap crack under one BD spur?
It appears to be stable, and is not getting worse.
Otherwise the drums are perfect.
It can not be seen while set up.
The drums are used in home only. I have other sets to play out.
I’m in driving distance to a few very high level people that could do the work.
I’m guessing the cost would be $150-200
I was told by one that the split would have to be filled, and color matched to the wrap, but would not make it perfect.
So keep them original, or do a repair ?

Leave it alone. If it's stable, there's no point in a repair, as it would still be evident to a keen eye. Wrap cracks at the spurs are pretty common with those thin ripple wraps. Beautiful kit, enjoy!

I had something similar with a Gretsch floor tom in champagne sparkle. I took it to Jack Lawton and his repair was so good, I had a hard time finding where he did the work.

I'd fix it with some wood glue and a toothpick and just fill glue under there and then fill the top crack as well. I'm no professional though.... I'm curious to know what a real repair job would cost.

Have it repaired correctly and know that it is solid and stabilized . Jack Lawton would for sure be the guy I'd take it to .
