Default Wrap Connection

Hi All,

I just discovered these guys and I wanted to share it with other drum builders/restorers in the forum. Excellent prices on wrap. Pre-cut if you want it. Delmar stuff, no junk wraps.

Yep, I wanted to share it because he gave me an outstanding price on wrap that Precision and Jammin' Sam are charging almost $75. more for the same wrap.

I'll be going back to him for sure.

Their 3 point strainer does look nice, I agree. I just wish it was a 4 point strainer that would exactly replace the old Gretsch 4 point without having to drill new holes, but it doesnt.

I've always had this idea stuck in the back of my head about reproducing old parts. Things like rail mounts, strainers, butt plates. I honestly think a small business like that would go broke in 6 months. but damn, it's such a good idea and something that drummers who restore old tubs would love.

Yep, we need a good repro four-point strainer along with about 100 other vintage parts that are impossible to find.

And this particular 3 point is not an exact exchange for the Slingerland. Te note at the bottom of the page says they are working to resolve that issue.

Retro - there's a phone number at the website. I called the guy and he got right back to me. Try phoning him...
