Drum Kit Finishes


Buddy Rich made the Classic Marine Pearl finish famous. Charlie Watts played a Blue Oyster Pearl kit in his early Rolling Stones days. The Ludwig Black Oyster kit used by Ringo Starr has become iconic. And Terry Bozzio plays an exotic wood kit. As famous drummers have shown, sound is not the only aspect that personalizes your kit. Your personal style is reflected not only by your playing technique and tone, but also by the unique drum kit finishes and texture of your drum kit.

Lacquer offers a high-gloss richness that seals and protects wood. Satin oil finishes seal wood with a delicate color oil, leaving the beauty of the wood grain in its most natural state. Finishply is a durable, high-quality laminate that covers the shell, offering durability and protection against dings and dents while also giving you an array of patterns to choose from – great for musicians on the road. Exotic wood finishes are beautifully unpredictable one-of-a-kind veneers that have been hand-selected from around the world for the purpose of making your kit unique among all others.
