Doing research on bathroom fixture colors, I came across this tidbit: Colors for Kohler toilet seats in 1929. Be still my heart. Plastic so beautiful — I should go into business. Alas, I think it would be a good way to lose a lot of money. Source: The Building Technology Heritage Library. These...
I like WMP in a snare up against a wood finish any stain color. That way... it looks 1) vintage and 2) like 'at one time I had the rest of the set. "All that was left was the snare" Lost it in the Great Fire of 1902 off the Steel Pier.."
Has a story then/
An all white marine pearl everything set sometimes looks "hey, How far Is Vegas from here?"
but just in the Snare looks sweet against a wood stain set I THINK
Yellowed WMP is one of my FAVORITE finishes ever! I would have recovered an old RB kit in a yellowed WMP instead of burgundy sparkle (I think!?) if antique WMP was yellower (and with the larger chip pattern).
There is no need to re-wrap or put up with yellowed pearl wrap.
The solution is very simple: clean with S C Johnson Paste Wax.
That stuff that comes in a round yellow can; you pry the top off with a quarter and it smells like a leaking gas tank.
I was skeptical the first time I applied some to a small patch on the yellowed blue marine pearl covering on my 1958 or 1960 Ludwig Classic Snare Drum.
But, it works like a charm and doesn't harm the wrap one bit.
The yellow disappears like magic and the drum sparkles like new; chrome and all.
