Theme-Based designs are a passion of mine. And I LOVE when a client comes to me with a specific theme they want their drums' coverings to be designed after. Often times, I will be even MORE thrilled if they come to me with a drum set that they want designed all-inclusively. Whether it be Branding Iron Floor Tom legs with revolvers for Bass Drum Spurs and Bull Horns mounted on Bass Drums like a Cadillac, or maybe this BEAUTIFUL kit we helped Loudog of the KottonMouth Kings build. (Watch the slideshow to the right, silly...)
This project was a fun one. Lou came to me with a request to reproduce the "Monster" Trade-marked logo, but modify it into his band's image of "KK" for "Kottonmouth Kings". Since no real type face exists (Monster had an agency create their logo using hand drawn techniques, thus, no legal registerable typeface exists from which to type out the words I want, be done with it. So, Lou was kind enough to send me a few bumper stickers to work from. It worked! I was able to illustrate the characters needed to successfully and convincingly spell out the band's name. Both Lou and I wanted to design the shells to match a typical Monster Energy Drink can, so I made up a set of rim strips that reflected the ingredients. For the heads, I made up chrome decals that were overprinted with the photograph I took of an actual can top.
Anyway, you have had this idea in your head for quite some time. And your drum set is just collecting dust in the closet... Wrap that bitch!
How Much Will it Cost You?
It doesn't cost as much as you might think. As a matter of fact, a standard 5 piece (single Bass ) setup of wrap material should only run you around $300. Give or take a few dollars or ten. As we price all of our wraps based on final usage size, we can only guess-timate until we know your actual sizes. However, to quote your own wraps, you can download our current pricing structure provided to the right, look up your sizes needed and then consider my design fee on top of that.
Our competitors would have you think that this fee is wrong of me to ask, But, the truth of the matter is, this side of what I offer is something they do not. I am offering you access to ME to custom design you something that fits YOU. Totally 100% CUSTOM DESIGNED ART from scratch. Not just me slapping two patterns together and calling it a service to you. Any fool can do that. What I offer here is my personal talent skill set that has designed custom wraps for some of the biggest touring names in the industry. Check my roster... my graphic skills are top-notch. So, what that Design Fee is paying for is my TIME to create you something for you. This can take days or weeks to do. Because it is like taking your hot rod into a paint shop and asking their artist to paint a dragon mural on it with naked ladies and flames and skulls and a wizard... and wanting your car done by tonight's date and for free.
That's just stupid. So, please take that into consideration when thinking about wrapping your shells with something entirely unique and available to nobody else... ever.
My design fee is $350 on top of the cost of the wraps. That's it.
So, what are you waiting for... a signed Certificate of Authenticity by the Designer?
Okay. If you order a Custom Artistry designed wrap from me, I will include a printed Certificate of Authenticity with my signature on it that will be included along with your wraps.
It'll look something like this, but with YOUR name on it:

If you already know exactly what you want, you can click the "more Info" link below and purchase the sizes you need. Then send us an image you would like to use. All we ask is that your image(s) be of high enough resolution to be enlarged enough to cover a Bass drum. 10" x 10" at 300DPI works perfectly!
