More Tangerine Glass Glitter
Pictures sent in (September 2006) by Gary Swaggerty from Springfield, Illinois of his Ludwig drum set. Awesome job Gary!
Hello, I finally got some photos of my new drums… and they don’t really do the drums justice. The drums look so much better in person… I guess Tangerine Glass Glitter is a hard color to capture in photos. They look more red in the photos, but trust me they are very orange. These are a set of Ludwig Super Classics that I bought in 1997. I gave them to my son as his first real drum set and he ruined them. Every seam was coming up and some spots were scratched almost through to the shell. They were Silver Sparkle originally. I’ve had them back for a couple years and been wanting to recover them but was afraid I would mess them up. After reading info on Jammin Sam’s site over and over, I decided to take the plunge. It couldn’t have been easier. I ordered up the wrap and began cleaning the chrome. Once the wrap arrived, with a little help from my wife, I had the drums recovered in no time. The hi-bond tape is the way to go… nothing could be easier. All in all, I probably spent about 5 hours total, and that includes cleaning all of the original chrome and rewrapping. The only thing that takes some time is allowing the tape to set up for 24 hours. The drums are 16×20, 9×12, 14×14, and a 5×14 snare. They sound better than ever. I couldn’t be happier with the way my “new” drums look and sound– can’t wait to get them on stage. Thanks Sam and crew,
Gary “Walnuts” Swaggerty
