I am partial to the Silver. Classy look and really nice under stage lights.

I would have someone like Precision do the job if you choose a glass glitter, and have never wrapped a drum.

Yeah, glass glitter is the hardest wrap to deal with. I've used it several times and it's a pain to work with. The end results are worth the extra effort but if you don't have some rewrapping experience under your belt it's a tricky way to start.

One of the most stunningly beautiful wraps for a Rogers Swivomatic set is Gold Glass Glitter. For some reason, that was not a big seller for Rogers back in the era when sparkle and glitter wraps were all the rage. Another thing that I would consider if the drums were mine would be to wrap them in a period-correct White Marine Pearl. The older I get, the more WMP appeals to me. I applaud your decision to spiff up the great drum set that you like.

As to a glass glitter wrap, I would not go with Silver, as it just is not "silvery" any more...unless the batch has changed. It has been more of a ginger-aled tone for many years now. Not sure why they can't get it to be silver, like the sparkle finish!

Gold looks great, but my vote would also be for green. A very stunning finish!

May I suggest that you take a step back, take a deep breath, and rethink your decision. Your post history suggests that you like changing kits on a regular basis. I would guess that no matter what wrap you use and how the project turns out you will soon be looking to make another change .... but then you will have a lot more skin (money) in the game with a rewrapped kit to boot. My 2 cents suggests that you be a little patient, reduce the price if required, sell the kit, and move on. Respectfully - Drum Doug

Very good advice!

I hear ya DD and I think you're right, since buying a Ludwig Classic Maple, I haven't been gigging the Rogers, but I just can't see selling it for less than $500, despite the cracks, it's a great sounding kit that looks nice on stage. There's nothing else wrong with it.

Really good advice from Drum Doug. Restoring, re-wrapping kits is something you do because you enjoy working on drums, its not for everyone. Its almost impossible to recover the expenses that it takes to get them done. I f you cant sell them for 500 the way they are Im doubtful you will get 8 or 9 hundred with the re-wrap. Most of the drums that I have redone cost me more to refurbish than what I sold them for, not all of them but most of them. But I like doing it, keeps me off the couch! I would say hang on for a while, they should sell for your price.

I'd like some opinions on what finish, I've narrowed it down to silver glass glitter, gold glass glitter, green glass glitter or blue glass glitter. Thanks in advance!

Jammin' Sam's green sparkle is bang on...
