Before 2015 production at the Walopus Drum Wrap Company was limited to a few designs in small quantities for a handful of drum enthusiasts local to the Greater Toronto area. Fans of the product say it is the most flexible, durable, gleaming and lustrous drum wrap possible.

Now, the company has scaled up its production and opened a website with an online ordering system and expanded its manufacturing capabilities. The online catalogue has grown to over 50 drum wrap designs, most of which are unique to Walopus including grains, sparkles, pearls, and unique designs.

Unlike most wrap manufacturers Walopus offers it’s products in either pre-cut pieces for standard drum sizes, or as full sheets. The pre-cut sizes include pieces large enough to cover a 24″ bass drum with a single piece of wrap.

All of Walopus’ designs are available in “standard thickness” which according to the company is in the neighborhood of 20 mil / 0.5 mm, or about the thickness of a credit card. Some are also available in an extra-thick gauge which is roughly double that of the standard gauge.

Walopus is a family owned and operated company. The products are hand-made in a purpose-built manufacturing facility in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga. All raw materials used are sourced from Canada and USA.
