Okay, I got it. It is indeed the real deal. The pics were playing tricks on my eyes. It's in really nice shape. Just needs wires and it's good to go. Not bad for 250 bones. My birthday gift to myself.
Actually I realized I have a set of 20 strand Ludwig wires. Just need some snare cord. I've never had to use cord before so this is new to me. May eventually upgrade the strainer.
It's never taken me that long to install snare wires. I feel pretty useless, lol. Anyway here she is, beautiful condition 1978 (?) Supraphonic. Sounds great of course.
Beautiful. Appears to be in great condition too !! I'd try to get the muffler if you can tho. I use the one on my 6.5x14 plus it is part of the original drum. Nice find !!
