    Default I just bought this Black Halo Glatter FF Shell .

    I just bought a FF Shell from Bentley’s Drum Shop on reverb. 14 x 6.5 Maple in Black Halo Glitter. I’ve been watching this for a couple of weeks. According to the listing it was special order. It’s brand new.

    That's awesome! One of my favorite finishes Pearl has to offer. Do you have an 8" free floater or are you going to just use longer tension rods?

    I saw those on Reverb too. Good purchase.

    It you get tired of the FF application, you can always have someone make it into a standard 14x5 snare drum later. Here's a photo of a FF Mahagony shell that I recently made into a regular snare drum.

    Oh, okay! For some reason I read the 6.5" and the pic made it look like it was deeper. What an awesome shell. Can't wait to see it in the chassis.

    Default Black Halo Glitter pics.

    The Shell came Monday afternoon. Here are some pics. It really looks even better in person. what’s even better is as you look from different positions the colors change . One week ago we had 5 inches of snow and Whitewalkers in our backyard.

    Looks great! You should buy a Session Studio Select kit to go along with your snare (before that finish is discontinued).

    Thx MM It’s fun to treat yourself now and then.
    That thought has crossed my mind but I just sold one of my 3 kits and I’m good with that for now .

    That's remarkable how the colours change. I've never seen that finish in person, I'd love to twirl it around in the sunlight

    The halo flakes are a cool finish. It's nice for Pearl to have made them available in a mid-range series (Session Studio Select).
