I didn’t vote as I’d be happy with all those. I guess the gold sparkle is my least fav by a hair...

Oh, to answer the original question: I personally think the gold sparkle out of the listed colors. It's a wrap that has been offered by Ludwig for ages, more timeless than the modern WMP and will shine both on stage and in the studio. IMHO.

I'm sorry, but in that video Charlie's drums look like someone spilled mustard all over them. At least a sparkle pearl would reflect some of the paltry amount of light that's falling on the drums there.
Great point! But then: who doesn't like mustard?! ;)

They are all beautiful. Each one. I guess WMP from the given selections, but I actually really liked the turquoise glitter, too.

Edit: yeah, turquoise glitter for me.

Edit 2: No, maybe the gold sparkle after all? hm, I might lose sleep, over this..

If you want you and your kit to blend into the background get a natural wood finish. As for me, I want something with more POP!

Sorry to throw more confusion into the mix but if you're a fan of sparkle (as it would appear you are), might I suggest the champagne sparkle? I have Ludwig CMs in champagne sparkle and believe it's a particularly nice version of that wrap.

I think the question has to be asked - what would that mediocre half ass non musical gymnastic chop freak no swing not a jazz drummer named Buddy Rich choose? Or maybe I should ask, what would the 80/20 hipster jazz master Nate Smith choose?

Hey, just keeping with the Buddy Rich theme lately!
Who's Nate Smith?

Oh yes, I'm a big fan of the champagne sparkle as well! But, like the turquoise, it doesn't seem to be a currently available option from Ludwig. I was picking colors from their site for the Classic Maple line.

Hes the YouTube guy that does the 80/20 videos. He started all of this Buddy Rich hate with one of his videos where he denigrated Rich to push a bunch of newbie jazzers he feels are much better.

Normally, I kind of enjoy the Nates videos, but this was click bait IMHO...
