I went a DIO concert a couple years ago and the drummer had a DW kit with a dark metallic finish, like titanium or something. I've never seen it anywhere else. I've looked on the DW site but not in real depth. It might be on there, but he probably had it custom made. Either way, it was a bad ass finish.

I always liked Red Sparkle. Plus all the older classics like White Pearl and Black Oyster.

I really like the dark cherry fade finish of the Tama Starclassics.

Anything red, blue or green. I really like the oyster shell finishes.

I really like the finish on my kit, it is a lacquered walnut stain over Ash wood. But man you can't get any prettier than those DW's, man I would love one of those.
