Ludwig Supraphonic Deal

There is a local Music store that is going out of business and I thought I would check it out. I was looking at their snare selection and found a 1976 5 x14" Supraphonic for $110. It does have some pitting and a little rusty but at that price I had to get it. It sounds amazing and while it may not be pretty it is in my opinion the steal of a lifetime.

Great deal, congrats!

One of the most versatile snares anyone can own. It's not how it looks but how it sounds after all. I have a pitted 14x5 Supra from the 1960's and it always comes to the studio with me.

Nice one!

Thanks. You got it. It's all about the sound and this baby sounds so good. It's got that hollow sweetness that I love about Supraphonics. I'm looking forward to cleaning it up and putting some fresh heads on it.

Money well spent. I want one but since I got a simiar smoking used deal on a '68 Acrolite, I have other snares prioritized.
