Default Rogers XP8 Sunburst finish

Refurbing a decent Rogers XP8 kit in Tobacco Sunburst and was curious if anyone here knows what paint/color they used on the original finish. I have tried unsuccessfully at three hardware giants to paint match the hoops using their computer match machinery and its just not happening. Several of the employees stated they thought the hoops were black but I'm not seeing it. I even tried rattle cans for a close match but not much luck there either. Any input from Rogers fans here would be appreciated. Thanks guys...

The batter hoop here is the original, the reso hoop is a Gibraltar black lacquer.
It was close enough for me. The original color has a bit of brown tint to it.
However, the sunburst finishes were all applied by hand by the guys in the Fender shop, and there is a lot of variation from kit to kit. My kit has more of the fade than many I've seen.

Thanks for the responses. I went to Sherwin Williams earlier today, walked in with one bass drum hoop and the salesman there could not have been more attentive. Got close a couple of times then (to me) he pretty much nailed it. Mostly black, some orange and a little green. The combo came out looking factory to me. JMHO...will paint the hoops and touch up some bumps and bruises this week. New heads are on the way. Double bass 22's, 12,13,14,16 set up. Now onto the hunt for Supreme hardware. The chase is half the fun.
