    Default drum wrap?

    Iím new to this forum so if this has been covered before I apologize. I have a vintage 1965 Ludwig kit with a Black Diamond Pearl wrap that I love. The wrap is original and while it isnít completely shot, it isnít pretty. Iím tempted to recover it and have been looking at ďJammin SammyísĒ. Any opinions on the quality of their product there would be appreciated. Suggestions for other suppliers also appreciated. Tape or Glue? I need to do this myself and would like to avoid glue unless necessary. I am not looking for a cheap wrap. Also, not that I will ever sell this kit, but does replacing the wrap have a negative impact on re-sale? Maybe Iím watching too much Antiques Road ShowÖ
    Thanks, MichaelJ

    The wrap quality won't take away any value from the resale, unless you get a custom wrap done they go for pretty cheap. You should try to stay away from doing it yourself unless you know how to wrap a set well. If anything goes wrong during the process, air bubbles, loose pieces, and wads of glue could really effect the sound of your drums. I suggest you take it to a music store and get it done professionally. Don't know about yours, but my local Guitar Center does custom set wraps for about $140, customs for $300-$500.

    if you are NEVER going to sell the kit, then go ahead and re wrap it. if you want the value to stay up i would keep it original. the ringo kits are worth quite a bit to the right people.

    Cool, Guitar Center can put on new wraps? Do they have a good selection or is it better to find your own for them to do? Do they do drum restoration as well? I would think so but I'm not sure. Thanks for the advice! Blessings.....

    Not sure about restoration, but they do clean pieces for you and such for a price. As a matter of fact, I had gotten my snare a little beat up and took it in, my buddy there filled the dented and damaged area with some product and sanded it, I got it the next day. As for wraps, they have somewhat of a selection, all I saw were pearl, satin, plaid, and multicolor at mine.
