Drum finishes come in several varieties but the most commonly used are wraps. Wraps are made of vinyl which is a flexible durable covering that comes in solid colors, patterns and sparkles.

Lacquering is a multi-step process used to create solid colors, sparkles, crushed glass, fades or bursts. The wood grain is usually visible beneath fades and bursts which can have a high gloss, satin, waxed or hand-rubbed oil finished look.
