So, I reached out to Cameron Brown at Brownie Custom Drums to do a champagne sparkle paint job on a snare shell, and he absolutely killed it. The sparkle is an automotive metal flake (like we use on hot rods) comprised of copper and silver flake. The clear coat is epoxy, and it is deep and smooth as glass. He also cut the edges and snare beds.

The shell is 7x14 5-ply Keller Magnum with 45 degree edges. This morning I drilled for all the hardware and got it assembled. I used the Drum Foundry Arch lugs and throw/butt from daVille Drumworks, Gretsch 302 hoops, and Tama snare wires.

This thing is a BEAST. It is bright and crisp, with a beefy low end. Enjoy the pics!

Wow! Stunning, just gorgeous.

If you don't mind, what base coat did you use and what size flakes? I'm starting to feel an itch.
