Does anyone have non stock photos of the five different finishes available? I have seen very limited pictures outside of those taken at Namm and the stock photos. Thanks for your help with this.

Also, if anyone has played them I would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks!!

The Vermillion sparkle is kinda like a Cinnamon red.

# 351 Satin Natural Burst

The thin even-ply six premium North American maple shells are 28% thinner than the standard 6-ply.

Nice Al. The bombay gold sparkle reminds me of your drums. Which finish do you like better?

I actually like the satin natural burst. The Absinthe Sparkle is actually shimmer of oz w/o the gold.

I'm digging that absinthe sparkle.

It is basically shimmer of Oz without the gold.

Just ordered the Shell Pack with the 22, 12, 16, and add on 14x14 and 6.5 x14 Snare in Bombay Gold Sparkle. Beyond excited to get these and get out and rocking. I have yet to see anyone with one of these kits. Has anyone else?

Certainly seems that way haha, I have yet to see anyone who has one. Thanks!!! Looking forward to it. Currently have a Pearl Reference Kit 22,24,10,12,13,15,16 in Scarlet Fade. I love it, but its time for something a little different.

In the U.S., we've done it. You'll have to ask Pearl Europe

That new Masters Maple Complete video with Calvin Rodgers is excellent. The drums sound great, and Calvin is a great player to show them off! Whoever set up the drums, cymbals, and recording equipment did a great job!

I agree Matt. Listened to it many times and they sound killer and so does he.

I bought a 6 piece Natural Matte Finish set. Really like them. Wish they offered more finishes. What sold me on Pearl was the hardware. Very heavy duty.
