Default Wrap Reproduction Experiences??

Hi Guys,

I'm wondering if someone here ever tried to reproduce a special vintage Wrap via custom order (Print).
And tried to fit a (like so) rewrapped Drum into an existing (vintage) Kit.

If so, how did it turn out?

Is it possible to print on Wrap like Delmar if I order a plain glossy white sheet?

Experiences highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Lars

I re-wrapped a rack tom with blue sparkle from Jammin' Sam's. It matched my 60's Ludwig set perfectly.

Like Jerry, I have seen that some match up pretty well with historical wraps in Sparkle and Oyster Pearls. I would recommend asking for a sample from the various suppliers to compare and make sure. Precision's wraps are really really close to the originals. A lot of the companies like Walopus, Bum, etc will take your print and make a wrap for you.
Let us know how this works out,

Thanks,

I just ordered samples of white (Delmar and another) Wrap in order to make test prints. The biggest Challenge its to create the perfect layout/ template Photo of my Premier's Silver Starů

I'll report how it works out.

That wrap wouldn't just be a "print". It actually has depth/surface features. Like you should be looking for textured aluminum sheets.

You're right, good point I also thought about a lot. That structure/ texture is very hard to imitate successfully by printing.

I'll research for aluminum sheets/ textured wraps.
