VINTAGE: Ludwig Supraphonic 14x5 - 60's (Keystone Badge) - 489925
Please select all options.
One of the most classic snare drums on the planet! The Supraphonic has been on all your favourite records. This is one of the cleanest Keystone Supra's I've had in a while!
This one is Vintage - Keystone badge and appears to be from 1967. It's in Very Good condition - fully playable and ready to go. The Chrome is good, certainly signs of age but the shell and snare overall are in great, playable condition ready to last for another 50+ years.
This snare was sourced from Washington State, USA. I then got it on the 'Kitchen work bench' and stripped it down, gave it a solid clean and check over before re-assembling with fresh heads and a set up ready to play.
You'll note the lugs are 'packed' with cotton. This was/is an ol' studio trick to eliminate any buzz or rattles - this vintage one has the hard work already done for you!
Great opportunity to own a piece of drumming history and get those classic sounds, at an affordable price.
