Default Re: Slingerland Cordova

I wonder what wrapping a drum in leatherette (or whatever that Cordova finish really is) does to the resonant qualities of the wood shell. It seems like it's a relatively soft material that would act as a muffler. But, heck, in those days, everyone wanted to muffle their drums, anyway....or take the bottom heads off altogether!

I do remember one finish that Slingerland had that I really liked....the COPPER finish! I'm sure all of you remember that mega-kit in the old Slingerland catalog....yeah
