Safe to remove Drum Wraps?

by Dave
(Oakville, ON)

If I remove the plastic coating from my drum shells, how will that affect the sound? I really like the look of wood but I can't afford new drums. Also every drum I see for sale is painted or wrapped anyway.

So if I remove the plastic, how will that affect the sound?


Hi, Dave--

You can remove the wraps without an effect on the sound, but you will need to protect the shells some way. You can either paint them or try a clear coat.

By the way,have you checked out our Almost Free Drum Tabs?
