At the present, there's only one manufacturer of this finish...Delmar. You can purchase from sellers such as Precision Drum and Jammin' Sam. Just like the original, each batch is different.

Yeah, only one source for this stuff. Batches differ so you might get a different variation from a different distributor and some batches might be closer to the old stuff but I have yet to see any that were spot on. Nearly impossible to seamlessly match old with new, although a whole set rewrapped together generally will look fine if it is a decent looking batch of wrap.

The other option are the scanned versions by Bumwrap and Walopus. I've only seen the Bumwrap version in person but it struck me as being a closer match to vintage than any recent batches of the 60s style OBP.
