You can't! Be a bigger sparkle fanatic than I am...its not possible!. That wizard of OZ ruby red slipper ludwig kit is drop dead gorgeous.When I was a kid, someone told me to NEVER buy a sparkle drum set because I would get tired of the finish.
35+ years later, I've come to the conclusion that I will never ever get tired of sparkles, and I'm pretty sure that I will never buy another kit that's NOT sparkle. I own a red sparkle Ludwig Classic Maple and a teal sparkle Pork Pie USA custom.

Check out this custom job below. This was THE kit that made me fall in love with Pork Pie drums. If I ever find this kit for sale, I will be buying it.
White sparkle lacquer with red sparkle lacquer diamonds. I love it.

Ludwig Copper Rose Mist. This was only available for about 20 minutes back in 2019. It has since been discontinued.

Since I can't find any drums in this finish like the one above, I think I'll be going with Ludwig Champaign (or Shampaign) sparkle:

DW's broken glass drums are just magical. There is NEVER a good picture of them online. I guess the way the light catches the finish, pictures are never just right. The ones I've seen in person really pop.

Hmm?...for me it would be that! Color. I've seen alot of orange jazz guys. Country drummers using white. I'd take that violet in a heart beat.
I just found this same picture online and immediately remembered the discussion about the "banana vomit" Sonor kit from earlier...so I came here to post this...and you beat me to it.
