I like what's happening here, even though I absolutely hate the idea of wood grain/figure printed wrap personally. You're doing some good work Grunt, & certainly easier/more practical/cheaper than going the veneer route. Actually, veneers are really quite inexpensive, but getting a gloss finish is a ton of work, especially without professional facilities.

Man that Bubinga fade is absolutely gorgeous. Gonna make a really beautiful kit. Is this going to be a bop kit with just a couple of toms? How long does it take you to accomplish this task?I'd like to try it but it looks a bit intimidating. I have an old Ludwig kit from the 60's that was one of my first kits-it's in bad shape being shuffled to other family members and stored at a beach house for some years too. This would be just the ticket.

Andy the other thing is, veneers are permanent. This is held on by on strip of tape and the hardware. If I wish a change, which is what I am doing as I am sick of looking at the Yellow and black striped bumble bee set, I can order anything else. I am doing an 18 x 16 bass drum this weekend to go with the snare, and from there who knows. My heart says GURU, my wallet says Bumwrap.

The White Macassar isn't for everyone. But again the cool part is that I can change it at anytime with another 30.00. It will go good with my next Cherry Poppin Daddies gig.

this will be the same bop kit that was the BumbleBee Bop Kit. 18 x 16, 12 x 9, 13 x10 floor, and this snare. From start to finish about three hours. A little less for the second one.
Price...snare 30.00
Bass....50.00
Toms...40 bucks each
Four peices....120.00

Where do you see the wraps on their site? I must be looking in the wrong place, cause there's nothing drum-related anywhere that I see! :P

Inspired by Grunt's work, I went and did one of my own. I got the birds-eye-maple-fade and put it on my DrumCraft Aluminum snare. I like the end result. Thanks Grunt for turning us on to this!

That metal snare looks great Tril!

Bumwrap's wraps look great but i'm having trouble with them completing an order, almost three weeks for something that was to be delivered in 3-7 days. Always happens to me!

That's just it. Confirmation tracking will not track (us postal tracking is a real joke) they promised to send out another last week. Nothing has shown up. Said i should have received tracking number but never did. They are currently researching. Just when i thought i had a good source.....oh well.

they have been busy. I got an email saying so last week. My bass drum wrap shipped yesterday. We'll see how long it takes. I'm in Florida and they are in Maryland and like you say the usps tracking is hit or miss. Keep on them. tell them they have 3 or 4 new customers from this forum alone.

Murray is busy but he's trying to make it right! It's a postal problem.

Hey Muckster, my folks live in Maryland and getting anything via USPS generally takes a couple of weeks from there. Not really sure why. That is a little strange about the tracking number though.

Received the complete order yesterday (this is the one sent from last week). He went ahead and sent another yesterday for good measure. The original order is floating is postal space now

That's interesting. The Postal tracking number is hilarious. I can only remember a handful of times when any postal tracking number actually tracked a package or letter all the way through.

I'd like to make it clear that this is a postal problem and totally out of Bumwrap's control. Murray is a stand up guy and does take care the problem.

Looking forward to seeing the end result. You'll have to post a before/after pic to get the full effect - ha ha.

You've got me toying with the wrap idea. I did the same thing on a few drums that you did, stripped, stained, clear coated, and am not happy the results.
A wrap seems the most logical way to go.

Drum and bass anyone? I finished the bass drum this morning. I need to repaint the hoops but it looks something like this. Two toms to go.
And one of the before that I grew tired of.

Thanks. Just ordered my last two tom wraps and should have this "wrapped up" in a bout a week. Sorry

Also ordered bass drum hoop inlays in the same finish. should look great when done.

Finished except for the tuning of the Bass drum and Toms
So we have 18 x 16, 13 x 11 floor, 12 x 10 rack, and a 5.5 x 14 snare.
I really think these Bum Wrap Drum Company wraps are cool. 18 x 16 is one piece, no seams. All of his wraps are one piece. Check them out.
