Also I’ve always wanted a MW kit finished in number 140 which is natural African mahogany Gloss I believe that would be absolutely stunning as well, especially with gold hardware.
    Thanks! I’ve seen the Antique Crimson Fade. It’s definitely a more subdued fade. While it is very nice, red just isn’t my thing.

    Nicotine marine pearl is also one of my favorites. If I was using this kit to gig with that would definitely be one of my top choices. But since I’m a hobby basement drummer and I don’t move my kit around a lot, I like a nice lacquer finish over the wrapped finish.

    Well just my opinion of course but, yes always take a lacquered finish over a wrapped finish. I think the rapped finishes are cheaper and cheepen the kit. They bubble and wrinkle and in my opinion choke the drums, because of the extra blue needed to adhere them to the shell.

    I am sorry, I wasn’t trying to insult anyone’s choice of finish for their kit. I was just talking about the general problems you have with wrapped finishes. I’m quite sure the nicotine marine pearl is going to be a very classy kit.

    No need to apologize - you don't like a wrap. I feel the same but there sure a lot of nice looking wraps out there!

    Hey Jackson- No worries and no need to apologize. I wasn’t insulted at all. I actually like all the finishes in the Session series, but I happen to like the Barnwood just slightly more than they others.

    Yes I like them all also, but after I had said that about wrapped finishes, I remembered that somebody here was wanting to get a nicotine wrap kit and I didn’t want them to be upset.

    The #405 Nicotine white marine pearl is a really nice looking finish.
