    WOW. My god. i can't believe my own eyes. this is a picture of my previous 8" tom
    I modified it with the black hardware that is shown in the picture. I own a Reference in emerald fade finish. and i was looking a long time for an 8" tom in the same finish. eventually i found one from a guy in Canada ( i am from Israel) selling it but with a black hardware. so i grabbed it immediately. then after couple of years i found another one in Scarlet Fade with chrome hardware. so off coarse i bought it as well and then switched hardware. including the optimount. So the optimount also was black on the orig. emerald fade tom. I even listed the modified scarlet fade with the black HW on ebay for a long time and no one was intersted. were where you Stefan Ray
    Great memory and i wish that it was the other way around. meaning all black hardware on my emerald fade kit. although i love the chrome also on that finish...

    I JUST got this kit. If you had the 8” Tom now I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

    Sweet looking kit, as all of yours have been through the years, Stefen. I have a Ref snare in scarlet fade (chrome hw) and love that color. It looks even better with your black hw. Congrats on another stellar kit!

    Still tasty of a kit as ever.

    #155 Scarlet Fade was the first Reference color I saw when the Reference line came out all those years ago (even before I had my Masters BSX kit) and it's always looked amazing. When I was first looking into upgrading to a Reference a few years ago, it was one of the leading finishes I was looking at buying, largely due to how plentiful add-ons were without having to special order them. But I suppose it worked out best since my Masters kit was already in #407 Red Glass so I didn't need two red double bass kits.

    I've since settled on a Reference in #103 Piano Black due to the absurd deals that fell into my lap, both the kit and the 2nd bass drum separately, and currently just holding out hope for a matching 18x16 at an equally great deal for my frugal ***. Saw one on Reverb that I just missed out on by a few years.

    Also have a few other plans in the future regarding snares including a Reference Brass, a Reference Redline BoB, and potentially a 12" Masterworks which is currently on the fence regarding the finish. I've found a finish I like but not sure if I want to go that route or the entirely custom route since it is a Masterworks after all. LOL.
