This is the most durable painted finish available.
Pans with this finish have the note surface sprayed with an automotive silver base coat, topped with a clear-coat. The impact of this on the sound of the instrument is negligible.
Notes are normally outlined in black marker unless the pan is scribed.
The undersides of the pan are sprayed with a silver base-coat.
The skirts are painted with an acrylic enamel. A wide variety of these are available – most common car colors are available in this finish, so go down to your local dealer, find a color that you like, and let us know!
