    Default Colour difference between Scarlet Fade and Ruby fade

    Hello Comunity,
    as I have a 16" Reference floor tom in Scarlet Fade changed to a Bassdrum so to have a spare bassdrum in case of very small clubs...
    Now I was looking for some 10 and 14 tom to make a small Jazz/bop kit out of it...
    In order not to spend for 2 additional reference toms more than for the entire reference kit that I bought used, does anyone know if the Ruby Fade colour of a Vision or ELX would be similar to the reference scarlet fade?
    If they match anyhow it could be a small investment for a winter trial project
    Any hint will be very appreciated.
    Have a nice day

    they are both spelled and pronounced differently for starters. I know, that's not helpful
    It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.

    Ruby Fade is a wood grain showing lacquer
    Scarlet Fade is a solid lacquer

    ok, now much clearer, anyway on my reference scarlet fade I can see a little of the grain, just a little.

    The Scarlet Fade has a metallic flake in it as well. I have a new Scarlet Fade Kit on order. So excited to get it. Name:  BF7DE99C-03E6-49E9-B0C5-3293100E4D67.jpg
