Default Oversized drum head

Im about to embark on converting a 1940s Slingerland 15 duco marching snare to. 7 regualr snare which I want wrap in marine pearl to match my Slingerland kit. Ive noticed that even an American vintage Aquarian head is tight on the shell so with the additional thickness of a wrap, itll be almost impossible. Does anyone know of any other oversized heads I could try? Dont really want to have to cut the wrap back as it never looks 100%.

...plus a bunch of mismatched Slingerlands that collectively make a pleasing noise.

Default Re: Oversized drum head

I would also add that I don't think that Remo Classic Fit comes in a 15". Hard to find 15" heads in any make!
