    Post Want examples of #331 Black Pearl and #166 Black Gold Sparkle

    Hello Reference owners!

    I am not sure if this is the correct place to announce this, though I am searching for examples of Reference drums or otherwise in #331 Black Pearl and #166 Black Gold Sparkle for my own 'reference'.

    High quality images of either are nigh non-existent on the interwebs, so any quality close-up images would be much appreciated!

    Thank you for taking the time to read this post!

    Thank you Al!
    It looks sort of like gunmetal grey with light reflecting off it. Is that how it looks like through the naked eye?

    Hoping to see more images from the community to make a better informed decision.

    The snare pic was taken with a flash.

    It's actually like a darker grey/black metallic lacquer with micro iridescent sparkles in the top coat.

    Interesting colour combo. That's quite the acquired taste.

    I'm really liking the lacquer. Any chance I can get to see that in daylight w/o flash? It would look more natural with daylight exposure.

    Actually... I think that combo would look really nice with a clear head!

    Wow... That is beautiful.
    I love the iridescent sparkles. Very low key, yet exciting in its own way. Suits my character and taste.

    What's your experience like with them? Do you prefer the finish in daylight or at night?
