    This drum was custom ordered in 2019. It has a 4-Ply (5mm) birch shell with reinforcement rings. The hardware is all gold plated including Fat Tone hoops, STL150 split tube lugs, and SR150 click lock throw-off.
    Not my taste in color or pattern, but I especially like the gold "Fat Tone" hoops.

    I get that it's not for everyone, but I love the looks of that drum. The purple/gold is very "regal" and while I don't really like the new MW graphics, the marbleized finish is very intriguing to me. It is also the only thin shell birch drum that I have.

    I saw another drum with the "marbelized" finish. Is that becoming something new with Masterworks (like the halo flakes used to be)z/

    We've done the Marbelized finish on Masterworks since the mid-2000's.

    This type of marbleized finish has been around for decades. It was first used in the custom car and bike scene.

    Iíve done this type of finish before and it is time consuming and tedious but well worth it. Pictures really donít do it justice. Iíve got some House of kolor marbleizer base so I might have to do up a snare after seeing these pics....

    I've had so many people ask me about how the marbleize process works and I have no clue; I just think it looks cool. Can you give the "Explain Like I'm 5" version?

    GMS did a similar finish. It was created by them painting the drums the way they usually would and then place plastic wrap on it with various wrinkles. They would then slowly peel it off after a period of time. I can’t find a picture of it.

    We have a similar process for the Marbleized finish process, Crazer is one of the product names the basic process using the typical paint base-coat application, apply Crazer or other product type to the surface then immediately use cling wrap for the different texturing choices to produce the desired effect. Let dry and then apply typical topcoat with poly-urethane clear coat over the finish. I don't know the exact precise process but it is something along these lines that most manufacture uses.

    The most common method is Saran Wrap. A base color is laid down first (usually black). The marbleizer is then laid down over the base coat and allowed to flash for 8 to 10 minutes. The plastic is laid on very loosely and patted down to produce a “wrinkle or marble effect”. The wrap is then removed and the piece can either be top (clear) coated, or a candy color can be put on top to get a more custom effect. The marbleizer comes in a few different colors and even clear so you can come up with your own custom creations using different pearls, flakes and candys which is what I like to do.

    There are quite a few videos on YouTube showing how this is done.
