    Looking for a source for material to use as a "trim ring" for concert toms. I already have a bunch of the current thick black rubber that Pearl, Yamaha etc use on marching tenors, but I'd like to find something chrome/aluminum/stainless looking (open to something plastic as long as the look is there), more like what Slingerland used to use.

    Drums are 70s Pearl fiberglass, so fairly thin shells with no reinforcement rings.

    Most auto shops have this sort of thing, used to line car doors in a more flashy manner.

    Slingerland used an aluminum extrusion bent into a ring. Maybe check with companies that offer that.
