To the guys at Pearl Drums:
I am looking to get a Masterworks kit in the color Lava Bubinga, from the old Masters BCX line... color #818. When this was done for the Masters BCX, it was explained that the outer finish was not actual Bubinga wood, but it looked so much like it, and it was such a beautiful color!!!!! I want this color for my Masterworks idea, but my question is, is this possible to do without being charged as if it were an actual Artisan wood veneer? And if it is possible, what would the outer plies of wood need to be to achieve that Lava Bubinga color concept? (Inside, I plan on having 2 plies of mahogany on my toms with the reinforcement rings, and 2 plies of the outer wood for a 4-ply shell, and 6 plies of mahogany in the bass drum, plus the 2 plies of outer wood for an 8-ply shell.) Please guys let me know, I would really appreciate it. Thanks a million in advance!!!
