Default Re: Ludwig Standards Recovered in Burgundy Oyster

Hi DrumBob, great job, can you please let me know where you bought this wrap. I would like to cover a snare drum to match an Ajax oyster set. Thanks. Jack

I didn't buy it, but I believe the guy who did the work got it from Walopus or Bum Wrap. I think it's called Oyster Pink #2. Of course. it's not pink at all. I fell in love with it immediately.

The guy I bought it from buys orphans and beat up sets and restores them, then sells them for just a small profit. He does it as a hobby. He's such a nice guy; very low key and meticulous in his work. You should see his house. Everything is in its proper place and it's spotless. This is the second set I've bought from him. I have an order in for anything he finds to rewrap in Green Sparkle. Or Mardi Gras Pearl.

Those Ludwig Standards were only $640 with matching snare. The bandleader I work with thinks it's the best sounding set I own, which is saying a lot, as I have DW, Ludwig, Slingerland and Leedy sets .
'01 DW Collector's, Oyster White: 8/10/12/14/16/22.
'72 Slingerland Red Tiger Pearl: 12/13/16/16/22.
'64 Slingerland: 13/16/20/22 (to be restored).
'68 Slingerland Green Sparkle: 12/13/16/14 chr./20/20.
'65 Slinger/Leedy, Blue Sparkle: 12/14/20.
'67 Ludwig Burgundy Sparkle: 12/13/16/22.
'69 Ludwig Black Diamond Pearl: 12/13/16/22.
'70-ish Ludwig Std, Burgundy Oyster: 13/16/22.
'69-ish MIJ Drum Mate, Peacock Pearl: 13/16/22.
