Purchased the Bombay Gold Sparkle Kit as soon as they were released... loved them so much, that I needed another Masters Complete Kit. Just received my Absinthe Sparkle Kit! See below for pictures of both. Love them. I know there is no logic in having two near identical kits in different colors.. but I dont care haha.

They certainly are a great lacquer job/finish on these kits. Quality of the finish is above others.

Tho I love Masters kits, I wasn't a fan of the absinthe sparkle finish when they first came out but I saw one in a local drum shop, under lights in all its glory and WOW! Was it gorgeous! The lights really made it pop out and it was obvious the entire drum section of this shop was lit up by this kit.. Just beautiful! Congrats brother on both kits... Hard to beat a Masters kit

Thanks, AFuller! At the risk of hijacking the thread I will say that my particular "problem" is that at the age of 60 I am going to learn to play the drums and I fell in love with the Absinthe Sparkle Masters Maple so that is going to be my first kit. I am probably going to ask a lot of questions.

I don't have hardware yet and have to clear out the spare bedroom to set it up. Here is a crappy first pic. I will take more with a better camera when set up. The Pearl Absinthe Sparkle is so much better in real life than pictures as I was sure it would be!

My wife and I lead worship at our church's early service. She sings and I play guitar. I have a burning desire to learn drums now though too.

is the absinthe finish the same as the shimmer of oz finish? or is it a bit brighter of a green?

AL said it is the same but no gold specks in the Absinthe that are in the Shimmer of Oz. The Absinthe is all green and silver. At some angles the green is pale and silvery and then move around and the green really shows up. The lacquer is very deep and thick with specks.

I was a huge fan of Shimmer of Oz, so of course the Absinthe Sparkle is down right hawt too. I see no problems here at all, you lucky pug, you.

I'm eyeing that Bombay Gold. I almost bought one when I was in the market for another kit. Pearl did a really good job with these. I haven't really been happy with Masters drums ever since they got rid of the original rectangle badged drums in 2007, but I'm actually liking these a lot more, especially for the price.
