We now offer Vintage Blue Onyx pearl, this color has bands of black and bands of blue pearl. The Onyx colors were first introduced by the Rogers drum company in the early 1960’s. Rogers called it “Blue Onyx”. Because we offer two blue onyx colors we have renamed this one to avoid confusion. The Slingerland drum company in the later 1960’s followed the Rogers company by offering this color, calling it “Blue Agate Pearl”. Even though the Slingerland drum company sold more drums than Rogers, the Rogers drum company is more associated with this color. (See History of Drum Wrap/Pearl Wrap History)
This finish is made for us at the same factory that supplied Rogers and Slingerland. This material is made 30 mil thick (30/1000 of an inch or 0.762 millimeters), which makes it more durable and long lasting. Give us a call if you would like to get this incredibly 3-D looking finish for your drums.
