I am looking to touch up the paint of my shure sm 81 microphone handle. I need to get information on the color of this microphone. I am looking for a PANTONE number or a RAL NUMBER.
"Pantone" color specifications are typically intended for specifying ink color, not paint used on metal.
The lab color values for the champagne paint used on the SM81 are:
A suggestion: take the SM81 to an Ace Hardware Store and have the store "color match" the handle using a colorimeter. From that, they can mix a batch of their Ace brand “Rust Stop” paint. It is tint-able, formulated for metal substrates, and costs about $5 for a pint in 2013.
