Has anyone seen this color in person? I like it but wondering if it is too dark. I also like the red autumn but I googled the images and some look too pink/orange.
Your input would be appreciated. Thanks.
The red probably would have been my second choice. They are as Bill said, red, red haha. But very nicely done.
It seems we do need to consider how finishes will look in usually lower light rooms where we often gig.
Like Winston, I too love and always wanted a walnut finish and walnut never goes out of style.
I also tend to like darker finishes in general.
I agree with that. It reminded me of the recording custom cherrywood. The gloss makes the red reflect a bit more.
my favorite walnut is actually Gretsch’s walnut and I love it in satin. But Yamaha’s is not far off and again, it’s dark
Every time I see dark reds on a kit, it just fades to black whenever you get it on a stage with darker, or colored lighting (which is basically every stage). I've always made the mistake of picking a kit that looks great under normal lighting that I can appreciate, and then I get it to a gig under stage lighting and everything I liked about the look is nonexistent. This is probably why black is so popular.
