By 1960, a triangular directional pattern pearl became available, which three drum companies featured in their 1960 catalogs. When a black back was applied to the pattern, a silver and a slight blue color emerged. Ludwig named it “Sky Blue Pearl” for their drums; Slingerland called it “Light Blue Pearl”; and Gretsch named it “Midnight Blue Pearl”.  The color’s popularity lasted about 20 years (lasting throughout the 60s and 70s).  But in the 1980s, there was less demand for the finish.  However, since the turn of the century, interest in this finish has began to rise again.  We are proud to offer custom cut refinish kits of this rare finish which we call “Vintage Sky Blue Pearl”.
