IMPORTANT: Custom Design Packages require you to open, edit, and save the Custom Design Template in your own graphic design software to upload your custom artwork.

Drum Slips are pre-cut, interchangeable, non-permanent wraps that precisely fit around the hardware of a drum so that you can instantly change its appearance. Made of a water-resistant, UV protected, durable vinyl composite, Drum Slips are very simple to install, requiring only the removal of drum heads (only the bottom head needs to be removed for snare drum installation). With the hardware protruding through pre-cut openings, Drum Slips are secured with a single adhesive strip making them non-damaging to the original surface of the drum and easy to remove and/or interchange. Colors and designs are limitless, including pre-made and custom options. New to Drum Slips? Click here to watch our product introduction video. PRODUCT DISCLAIMER: Drum Slips are specifically designed for certain versions of current model marching percussion instruments (compare your equipment with the images of compatible equipment below before purchasing).
Percussion instruments that vary from the compatible equipment, however, can usually be modified by the purchaser to fit, but ON2 Percussion doesn’t guarantee the fit of non-compatible equipment. Equipment with manufacturer installed wraps removed or equipment with stained finishes will not fit as precisely as equipment with manufacturer installed wrapped finishes. It may be necessary for you to slightly modify your Drum Slips to fit your equipment. Such modifications may include cutting out openings for older model air hole locations and trimming tenor mount and spacer openings. Other minor Drum Slip trimming may be required as well. Drum Slips are designed with cutouts that are slightly larger than the actual drum hardware in order to accommodate inconsistencies in hardware type and placement from the drum manufacturer. Because of this, it is important to take into consideration the existing color of your drums and the chosen color of your Drum Slip design when purchasing Drum Slips, as the existing color of your drum will show slightly around the drum hardware (lug casings, air holes, spacers, etc.). Drum Slips are made to order and are non-refundable.
