Default ASBA 70s Starlet 22" 13" 16"

Hey Guys,

EDTIT:

sorry! I just saw i posted it in the wrong section! Sorry about that. But thanks for helping me out with the questions from other members of the forum!

The Wrap should not look like this. This was original a pink glitter wrap that faded heavy. I don't like to rewrap drums if the wrap is still on the shell. So i kept it as it was (see pictures).

ASBA drums are amazing set. The hardware is really cool an does work very well - an I am a Sonor guy saying this. The French guys are loving the mojo of these sets and as you can see in the Philly Joe Jones video down in the thread they sound huge.

I played them in my Bigband and loved how they sounded!!!!

Just curious: Is the wrap supposed to look like that, or is it discolored?

He mentioned in his original post that the wrap is badly faded.

I'm not familiar with these. Are they a German brand? And are they worth that kind of money?

I can see they're faded, but I was asking about the discoloration; the black stuff you see.
