This same film also comes in a goldish tone. Three levels of blackout were also available and I picked a tint that blocks no light. I now wish I would have cut down on the light a bit, but at least there are no damaging uva and uvb rays to ruin the finish on the drums!

Thank you for the reply Mark!
