Rewrapping new drums

Discussion in 'rec.music.percussion' started by Karl A. Røsth, Aug 28, 2003.

  1. Hi all,

    I have a small and really nice Yam Hipgig jr. kit, that I've just completely
    fallen in love with. I am able to travel to rehersals with my entire kit on
    the subway - beat that!

    Hovewer, I don't fancy the wrap-finish that these kits are delivered with. I
    just find them a tad ugly - not typical drum colours. I'm concidering buying
    some HQ White Marine Pearl wrap sheets, and re-wrap the toms and
    "bass"-drum, but I'm not sure how well the wrap on a modern kit is glued to
    the shell. I've removed the wrap of old drums before, but I know that
    drum-makers today use better glue, makes the wraps sit tighter etc. Any one
    here who has any experience with this? I know those hipgig jrs. are of the
    same shell and wrap-process as the DP / YD / Rydeen-series...

    Thanx

    Karl.
  2. You can buy the wrap through me at the same price as any of the other
    internet sites and I send you full instructions that I wrote myself. You
    don't want to use Precision drum's instructions or Sam Barnard's tape
    method.
    The glue you use is water based contact cement and I suggest buying in
    precut sheets.

  3. I work in a drum-store, get them at cost-price from the distributor...
    Sorry. Thanks for the advices though! I talked to another drumgur here in my
    country, and made it clear that the low-end drums use just a piece of
    double-sided tape at the end of the wrap-sheet, so removing it shouldn't be
    any big problem!
