So far its only available on a limited edition snare available only at Guitar Center...i guess beyond that it will be up to Ludwig to decide.JayT said:??K.O. said:Here's Ludwig's new Pre-Aged Oyster Pink Pearl (or Pink Oyster Pearl...whichever name they are using).
I've got the snare so now I need some wrap to rewrap some drum shells to match it.
To me this version looks more like a melted strawberry sundae than a slab of bacon...but that's just my take.
I didn't know this finish was available? Can kits be configured with this vintage wrap?
I'm uncertain whether this is actually a traditional oyster pearl wrap (where a block of plastic with both colors swirled around is created, hardened, and then sliced into thin sheets of wrap) or created in some other way. It almost looks like the pink is applied over top of a white pearl as a tint. I can't say for sure either way as none of the modern oysters seem to have the depth that the old ones did (although the latest version of the vintage Oyster Black comes pretty close).
The only one of these drums I've actually seen is the one I bought (pictured above) so perhaps other examples may have a deeper pearling to them and blow my theory out of the water.
