Default Question about wrapping my drum kit

I am considering wrapping my Premier drum kit in a silver sparkle wrap. I'm going to use Jammin' Sam's wrap, which uses high bond tape (no glue). It currently has a lacquer finish. I am wanting to use the original lugs, but drill new holes to offset them for a more custom look. Has anyone done this successfully? What type of wood filler would you recommend for filling the original holes or do they need to be filled at all? Any other advice pertaining to wrapping drums would be helpful. Thanks!

To fill the holes I would use wooden dowels. You may end up one day with a pile of loose putty inside your bas drum. Get dowels that are snug and glue them in. Push them from the inside out so the inside is flush. It's very hard to sand the inside. Then sand down the outside part of the dowel. If you drill new holes, drill from the outside in and put a block of wood on the inside to prevent splintering. Good luck.

Agree about the use of dowels to fill the holes. You can find these at most home improvements stores in a variety of sizes. I've also used Jammin' Sam wraps and have been happy with the results. Just make sure you get the wrap tight all around the drum, as it only adheres at the seam with the hi-bond tape.

Once you get the wrap started you can actually mount one top and one bottom lug to hold the wrap tight as you go around the drum. The lugs do a good job of holding the wrap on. Just pay attention to the seams. or seam

Thanks for the input. Yeah, I play a Premier Astria XPK and I was going to buy a new kit, but I decided to wrap it instead. I love the sound of my kit (birch and eucalyptus) so I didn't want to get rid of it. I figured I would just spend $300 to update it. By the way, do you know of any companies that sell/make 2 1/2" bass drum hoops?
