Oyster black pearl from Walopus looks GREAT!

A big THANK YOU to Magnus of Walopus Drum Wrap! He wrapped a 80's Ludwig Rocker snare for me in Oyster Black Pearl and did a great job. Although it doesn't match exactly the 52 year OBP rack tom and floor tom I have (which I didn't expect it to), it looks fantastic beside them.
Quick professional service with a quality product plus I am able to support a fellow VDF member.
For me, it is a great alternative to the real thing which I'm afraid I will never afford to purchase; it looks great with the black/white Ludwig badge.
I still have some clean-up on the chrome but wanted to share with the Forum in case others are looking to do the same.
These Rocker snares sound great!
Keep up the good work, Magnus!

Looks great. It kinda looks aged, which looks more authentic.

Thanks! I may just leave it looking aged for the look ; rust and dust!

Is it just the lighting, or do I see some hints of purple in there?

I think that's the lighting. I don't see any purple in the actual product.

We have sample available to order on the website if you'd like to confirm.

I stand corrected! After the OP also mentioned seeing purple, I took another look under some different lighting and there is indeed some subtle purple tones as well as a couple of shades of blue I hadn't noticed before.

I like it personally but we can adjust the color tones if required.

Yes, I do see some subtle purple but personally I like it too.
