Just got a kit off eBay that appears to have started life in 1968 as a Ludwig Hollywood set in Oyster Blue Pearl - very similar to the original kit I got when I was 14 years old. Somewhere along the line, someone decided to paint these drums black (ugh!). To the credit of whoever did the paint job, they were very careful. Unfortuately, the paint they used caused the wrap to crack and start to fall off in a few places. The good news is that the shells are in very good shape. I took a small piece of the wrap from the bass drum and held it to a flame last night and confirmed that this old wrap burns like crazy. My intent will be to remove the wrap by burning it off later today. I've done this before and it is - by far - the easiest way to remove the wrap and does the least amount of damage to the outer mahogany ply. I'll try to shoot some video for your viewing enjoyment!
