Default Re: Show Off Your DW Kit

Citrustrip was the key element!!! I actually tried a few things (I won't mention them here because I still want to slap myself in the face for doing it) but finally got pro advice from my friend who is a drum builder and refinisher)

You apply the Citrustrip, and wait about 15 minutes or so - then the glue literally rubs off with a cloth or towel, it's incredible how easy it comes off. After that, I barely sanded with a fine fine fine grit paper.

Fortunately I was quite lucky - the wood that drum companies typically select as a wrap candidate does not look very well underneath the wrap, but the drums looked excellent.
