Pictures sent (April 2015) from Wayne VanDenBroeke of Grensboro, North Carolina of his Ludwig Pioneer snare drum. Time has ben on your side Wayne!
Sirs, Keeping in character with my slow response… here is a better picture of the wrap I installed on my DIY e-snare. It is a 12″ snare shell from a child/youth drum kit. It is wrapped in your [80’s] Black Diamond Pearl. I installed a Ludwig badge and grommet to pay tribute to my first kit — a Ludwig Club Date in black diamond pearl.
The wrap was installed about 4 years ago – I just replaced my original black mesh heads with new white mesh heads and cleaned up the shell – still looks great!
I bought two sections of [80’s] black diamond pearl wrap from you last year… yeah, I am a real Johnny-on-the-spot… and I finally installed one of them!
One section was for my 1963 Ludwig Pioneer snare shell, the other was for my DIY e-drum snare. My plan is to eventually wrap the old Ludwig as a reproduction of the snare from my first drum set, a Ludwig Club Date dated from 1961-early 1963 picture here of me with my old kit, back in the day:

I used the e-drum to test my installation technique…
I followed your steps and even did the ‘roll into a tight roll and sand on a flat surface’ to put a final fit to my drum shell. It all went together as advertised and I now have a beautiful 12″ [80’s] Black Diamond Pearl electric snare drum.
Since it may be another year before I get to actually working on the Ludwig Pioneer, I thought you might enjoy seeing my current completed drum. It is not a ‘real’ drum, nor is it a real Ludwig, but man… it looks cool, and represents a modern e-version of what I first played on…
Loving it – Thanks
