    Default The official mcx chestnut fade thread

    Well since chestnut fade has very recently become a special order item I felt it was only right to do it justice by giving it its own thread. Feel free to post any and all pics of your chestnut fade kits doing chestnutty things!!

    I'll start with a few pics of mine in the studio last summer. Lighting is a bit dim, but you get the idea.

    Specs in sig, questions welcome...

    Enjoy!

    the crazy thing is.... I landed up with chestnut fade on accident! It was a blessing in disguise. I had ordered a second black sparkle fade drum kit because musicians friend was taking an eternity on getting my mcx924xfp shell pack in color #363 from Pearl. i got frustrated waiting for the shell pack to arrive so I purchased some individual drums in color #363. an 8,10,14,16 and 22x18. well.... They screwed up and sent me a 22x18 in color #259 (chestnut fade). When i opened the first box I was extremely disappointed the bass drum was wrong color and even more upset because the chestnut fade finish is absolutely awesome. I fell in love with the color instantly. I called musicians friend and luckily the manager felt bad for me. He exchanged the black sparkle fade toms for chestnut fade toms. By the luck of God they had them in stock and dude even threw in a free 12x9 in color #259.
    My friend from guitar center had busted up a 4 piece shell pack to sell me the second 22x18 bass drum. A perfect match color wise! Cost me $638.00 I got killer deal on my 14x5.5. i got it in 3 days from SEARS!!!!!!!!!!!! Sears Roebuck and Co. now sells Pearl masters and Pearl Reference series drums. they have many individual drums in stock! No kidding. its crazy how things worked out... My chestnut fades took less then one week to get in. Through bad luck I lucked out... anyways.... Here are my chestnut fades...

    Thanks New, I did it for you!

    Ddrum that's a great story. No offense, but the classy chestnut trumps any kind of sparkle hands down! I wish I was as "unlucky" as you. Obviously love your set up. Put that 13 down to the left when you get it and it'll be perfect!

    What are you workin with there on the kicks? Heads? Tuning? Muffling? And how is the feel/sound you get with that combo? Also, those look like just clear Ambs on the toms / coated on the snare? How are those threatin you?

    P.S. that is cool as hell that you can order Pearl drums through Sears

    2 awesome double bass kits...we're off to a good start! I'm unable to take new pics now because my computer took a dump. I will when I can though. It would be great to see every Chestnut Fade on the PDF right here. Thanks for making this thread ResonantAscendancy!

    I totally agree with you Resonant! Its crazy because when i first seen chestnut fade pics in catalogs I wasnt diggin it one bit. When a 22x18 bass drum in #259 accidentally arrived at my front door instead of #363....Yeah i was mad! I opened the box anyways because I waited for an eternity and knew it was going back. I stepped back after tearing the paper off and said wow!!!!!!!!!!! I was bummed out even more because #259 does look better then #363. The chestnut fade drum was absolutely beautiful and I wished I had the whole set. Love at first sight! Most catalog pictures dont do this color justice!!! When the chestnut fade bass drum arrived it was brutal because I had an 8x7, 16x16, 14 x5.5 and a 22x18 bass drum in #363 Black Sparkle fade just sitting here brand new in original boxes. I can honestly say.... The #363 drums look amazing in person too but the #259's are even better looking. It was such a tough decision bro... i put both colors side by side and would have been devastated sending anything back. so, I kept em all and completed both kits.

    Just what the doctor ordered!!

    Here are a couple pics I found of DrumLove's kit when I was still planning out what I wanted to order. After seeing these my mind was pretty much made up. Still the best representation of chestnut fade I've ever seen.
