Anyone have any recomendations?

I have a Manu Katche junior kit, the discontinued model Made In Japan, in a Silver wrap.

It's a special kit to me and the floor tom wrap cracked.

It's this kit here...


I'm a newbie to this type of a search, I tried Yamaha's "live chat" but the person seemed, confused haha.


Any help is appreciated, if this is even possible.

I would start by contacting Precision Drum Company. They handle a lot of different wraps and are probably familiar with the silver wrap used on the old Manu Katche kits. They can let you know of there's a comparable wrap available today. Yamaha later went to a silver lacquer finish on these 4 piece kits in place of the silver wrap. I may be wrong but to my eye, it looks like the photo in your post is one of the lacquer kits. The wraps had more of a brushed aluminum look from what I remember.

Pretty sure that's not lacquer, at least my kit wasn't (it was ugly blue cobalt wrap). It is that thinner cheap wrap with "sparkles" but not really - more of a pearly silver. As much as I love Precision, I don't think they stock that lower quality wrap.

I think it is silver mist. Try this guy:
