    Default Help Identify Finish

    Hey fellow Pearl enthusiast. Just picked up this 90's era Masters Custom Maple from the original owner and need some help Identifying the finish.

    He said it's called Black Broken Glass Fade, but I can't find any other kits with this finish.

    Looks like Diamond Burst Fade to me, but the middle is more gold than silver. Might be due to age, but not sure.

    What finish do I have?

    Thanks guys. They look awesome, and the little bit of gold, home run.

    Appreciate the help. Is this a very common finish?

    I was totally in love with Diamond burst w/ Black Hardware MCX from musiciansfriend.com a while back. I still love it as well as Comet Shower as my 2 favorite finishes. Skeld has one and Nik used to have one w/ Satin Hardware. The Black Hardware is at it's best with both of these finishes! Congrats and Happy Drumming!
