Default Oyster black pearl from Walopus looks GREAT!

A big THANK YOU to Magnus of Walopus Drum Wrap! He wrapped a 80's Ludwig Rocker snare for me in Oyster Black Pearl and did a great job. Although it doesn't match exactly the 52 year OBP rack tom and floor tom I have (which I didn't expect it to), it looks fantastic beside them.
Quick professional service with a quality product plus I am able to support a fellow VDF member.
For me, it is a great alternative to the real thing which I'm afraid I will never afford to purchase; it looks great with the black/white Ludwig badge.
I still have some clean-up on the chrome but wanted to share with the Forum in case others are looking to do the same.
These Rocker snares sound great!
Keep up the good work, Magnus!
Chris

Looks great. It kinda looks aged, which looks more authentic.

Thanks! I may just leave it looking aged for the look ; rust and dust!
