    Default What colors do i have here??? Pearl mcx masters custom

    I recently purchased this kit used online and when it arrived-I immediately noticed the kick drum was not the same finish as the other drums. Can anyone help me figure out what I have here? I believe the toms to be (#406) Bronze Glass and the kick drum to be Pewter Glass (#408) can anyone help confirm this?

    thanks!

    Hey guys, i have also a About Colours!

    My set was ordered 1999 from Udo Masshoff (he was pearl endorser at this time) in red sparkle as a custom set…

    I called him to get more information About my set, and he told me that pearl had 2 different red sparkle finishes at this time...

    Now i have an offer for used MMX drums in red sparkle, but how shoud i get the information that the offered drums are in exatly the same red sparkle like my drums?

    I called pearl europe if the can get the info out of the serialnumber...they say that that is not possible, i can send them Pictures from the drums and they will see if they are in the same Colour or not...(Maybe they have better eyes than me? )

    In my opinion this is no 100% safe way to be shure it is the same colour...is there now way to get an safe information by pearl?

    regards martin

    there very well could have been 2 different shades of color 163 red sparkle lacquer. The only way to get a true matching (or as close as possible) match would be to take one of your drums and provide it to your authorized dealer to color match for an add-on component.
