The sparkle wraps have a sheen to them that forms a horizontal sparkle, while the glass glitters are more irregular, like little random starlight sparkles dotting the drum. I'm more entranced by the glitter due to the non-uniformity of it. I dunno. Everyone has their preferences. :)

I do prefer the silver sparkle over other color sparkles, because there is more of a prism effect. Silver sparkle reflects red and blue stage lights in a way that red sparkle and blue sparkle don't...
