If you cannot find matching wrap try Bumwrap they make scans and reproduce wrap > A quick google search should put you in touch with them

Ok, Great! I will give them a shout. Thanks for the heads up on the kinky guy. As for the other drums... They do have shrinkage and cracks in them however, have not accelerated in deterioration like the kick drum. Zero reason or guess why. Maybe all drums were in case's except the kick? Who knows... I will ask the original owner tonight.
If I'm lucky, I will find a good solution... Maybe Bumwrap. If I do find the correct material you can bet I will procure enough material to wrap the entire kit even though I would not wrap the other drums at this time. I will actually play this kit regularly. So if the wrap starts to come apart on the other drums I will be ready.
Thank you for the Tip!!!
Cheers.

Funny, I thought it was all a bit too familiar... Glad it worked out for you! Nice one, Coffeeman!

Q: What makes this particular wrap rare... when, I can't even find a basic red, champagne or gold sparkle Oaklawn 12x8 tom to complete a few sets I have... Gee, I'm starting to think pretty much all Oaklawn Camco Aristocrat drums are rare regardless of wrap color/type.

Congrats and good luck on your kit...

Is that the extent of the damage to the shells? I was told the 13" has a cracked re-ring - not just separating from the shell but was cracked all the way through. Also was told the muffler screw on the 16" has been pushed through into the shell damaging the outer plies.

Regardless, you got them for a decent price and the issues should not be difficult to repair by any means. I personally would rewrap them either in a period correct wrap or perhaps try the method of getting some custom wrap made just for the bass drum. If you can get close, that would keep most of the drums original and should give a decent result. Due to the process used, the digital wraps never give the depth on these types of finishes that the original wraps had. They can get close though and it is worth exploring. Good luck and thanks for sharing!

I'm slightly intrigued by the Bumwrap idea. If clothes can have perfect photographic repros in them then copying drum wrap should easy. And you'll only to tart one drum not four. Even if Bumwrap are outrageous still probably cheaper. Or salvage some original wrap for the top and repair with the digitally scanned stuff (can't see enough to judge if that's possible). Failing that, burgundy sparkle is cool.

Is this the original set offered by Camco?

Yes. I was told that it was. The reason I think this may be plausible, Eddie Knight was the drum instructor for the original owner of this Camco set. Eddie was affiliated with Camco at the time. Eddie was the person who said to the original owner of the set of drums that was indeed the same set on the cover.
