Default Need Help Refinishing my Kit.

Hey Guys. I've been thinking about refinishing my kit for some time now but am still a little sceptical about it. I've tried searching the forums and saw some pretty good turn outs on some kits but it's a little different for me. Most of the refinished kits had a wrap which could be peeled off. My Yamaha Beech Custom (Pre-Absolute) has a laquer finish(Blueberry). I'm wondering if it's possible to take the laquer finish off and rewrap it with a black sparkle or glass glitter. Would it be too difficult for a DIY project? Or should i take it to a professional custom builder. I live in Virginia so my first option would be to take it to Maryland Drum Co. for some help unless there is someone closer. I would also like to know where to buy the wraps. I've checked out Precisiondrums.com and thought they were pretty good. Any Help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Mhhh, I would seriously go to a professional custom drum company...they could tell you very well what you could do.
I think that a wrap over a stock laquered shell would work...but rather listen to the men and women of Maryland drums.

all the best! =)

You have the right idea. you dont need to remove paint to wrap (i dont think you do anyway)

I refinished my set! it turned out awesome. its painted a wood purple. its great!

YOU CAN DO THIS! Its stressful but you can do it! keep that in mind. your drums will look great when you are done!

Why not take off the hardware and take it to an auto paint shop and have it repainted a black sparkle. I think this would be cheaper than going to a pro for a wrap. Call one and get a quote. Some may not want to do it and will give you a ridiculously high price to scare you away. So try a few.

I would just take all the hardware off and the people at the car shop would just paint over the lacquer? Would the finish be okay... i havn't heard of it done this way so i don't if it will come out the way i want... that could be a possibility
