I think you're nuts if you try anything that may damage that wrap. That's a nice kit, leave it alone.

Donít worry Iím being very careful and gradual. I love these drums and would do nothing to harm them. Iím using laser measurement equipment to ensure I donít go too far on the top surface. In real life it looks great. Itís just taken some of the yellow off and has brightened the wrap without using chemicals.

The drum from another angle. I think there was some blue in the light in the other pic. Definitely black oyster, even the lightly rubbed part.

Damn! That's a beautiful wrap! Gotta give Ringo a lotta credit--there were a bunch of choices, & he picked a beauty. Your kit's gonna look sweet....marko

Man, genuine first generation oyster black is absolutely magical. I never get tired of seeing it. I still remember looking at this photo below and being completely enamored with the finish as a kid. There's a nice version of it in the Anthology book where the silver really pops. I read that thing cover to cover.
