    Historically, it looks like Pearl used to offer a few finishes as "in stock" finishes and allowed you to order the other finishes as "special order". In the readily available "in stock" finishes, they only offered a few sizes and the more uncommon sizes would still have to be ordered as "special order."

    Now, in regards to #407 Red Glass, it looks like most sizes (https://pearldrum.com/products/kits/...om/#components) can be made via Music City Custom line in Reference specs and shipped out within 14 days. I am guessing the only major difference will be in the series badge.

    I hope this is correct and it helps.
    When I got my Refs in 2009/2010, I went through Guitar Center's website, and Scarlet Fade was an "in stock" finish, but it still took a couple months for some of the drums to arrive. They had a 10x8, 12x9, 16x16, and a 22x18 able to ship to my local GC in less than a week, but the 14x5 snare and 14x14 floor tom took another two months. Still better than their new lead times of 6 to 9 months. Oh well...

    It looks to me that all Reference, Reference Pure and Masters Maple Reserve are available in #407 Red Glass via Music City Custom, like Al stated above. It's on the website that way and the new 2020 Catalog.

    John - Color 407 Red Glass is part of our MCC (Music City Custom series), so it is still available in Reference, Reference Pure and Masters Maple Reserve.

    I had forgotten all about this color. Play red or hide it in the shed.

    started a topic Red Glass

    Red Glass

    I bought my Reference Series set in 2008. It's a 9 piece double kick set finished in Red Glass. I'm still impressed with the set after all these years. Sorry to learn that Pearl no longer offers the Red Glass finish.
Working...
