  • Reference Red Finish

    Can anybody tell me what kind of Finish is this and how does it called? And maybe in what year it was introduced?
    Thanks

        Red glass has always been available. Look at the hoops. If that were a Reference lacquer finish, the entire hoop would be red sparkle.

          I believe that Red Glass was first offered in the BSX line that came out in 2006. I have a Red Glass MCX.

            From the point of view of a second hand kit, Should I assume that a reference kit with wrap finish has less value then the same with a lacquer finish?

              I believe you are correct. I was referring to the red glass being available on the Reference series since its inception. Anyway, isn't it a great finish! It's one of my favorites. Most pics don't show its true beauty. The ones above are pretty good.

              Why would it be worth less? Both cost the same when new. Glass glitter wrap for a kit like the one in the first pic would cost about $600, and that's just for the product. The wraps on a Ref kit are glued onto the shell. There's labor involved. Also, there's a better chance of the wrapped kit being in better aesthetic shape than a lacquer kit of the same age, especially if the kit was gigged.

                    I said the wrap for a kit like the one in the first picture would cost $600. No where did I say the kit would cost $600. I suggest you reread what I said. There is a snare in that picture as well. My point was that glass glitter wrap is expensive and should not be considered a lesser quality than other reference finishes.
