White marine pearl by any other name still smells the same

Discussion in 'rec.music.percussion' started by George Lawrence, Aug 28, 2003.

  1. FYI; After going on a wild goose chase to nail this color down for a fellow
    RMMPer I finally got word from Delmar that what DW calls "ultra white marine
    pearl" is the same color # that everyone else sells as white marine pearl
    (precision, drum maker, etc.). I have yet to figure out what DW's white
    marine pearl is if their ultra white marine pearl is the same as everyone
    else's white marine pearl. Didn't they try to patent the circle too? :)
    It would be nice if _some_ conventions could be adhered to instead of this
    Singer Sewing Machine method that some use .

    I'm upgrading my website to a serious inventory type site where I'll be
    listing entire inventories from some manufacturers and suppliers. A lot of
    them sell the same thing but of course use "their" names or numbers or even
    measurements. My method for sorting through this madness for my customers
    will be to use the original source's name first: Delmar; white marine pearl
    color #xxx; then list the stupid confusing variations thereafter: DimWit
    Drums: ULTRA white marine pearl.

    Another example. World Max 4" tension rod , WeBeDrumPartsAndShit; 3.75"
    tension rod (we measure from below the square head) How ridiculous is that?

    This is common when measuring screws, which a tension rod basically is one.

    George, the funny thing is that DW's "White Marine Pearl" is actually
    "whiter" than the "Ultra White Marine Pearl". To my eyes anyway, the
    ultra white actually looks yellowish when held up the regular white
    marine. I needed some covering for a drum to match my kit and DW
    customer service sent me a swatch of each so I could determine exactly
    what was on my kit. Also, I wasn't able to find a match anywhere for
    the DW White Marine Pearl until I found out that they would sell it to
    a dealer.
