Here’s a super sweet example of the most popular snare drum ever made. This drum marks a very important spot in the evolution of the legendary Ludwig Supraphonic 400 snare drum. The earliest Supraphonics had brass shells, rotary mufflers, crimped snare beds and no serial number. This drum is the first step of the evolution. In 1963 Ludwig started producing Supraphonics like this one with aluminum shells and baseball bat mufflers. By the end of the same year they stopped making crimped snare beds and began adding serial numbers to the Keystone badge. This version of the Supraphonic 400 was made for less than a year and are extremely rare. This particular drum is in near perfect condition. The photos depict the condition very accurately. If you’re looking for a great Supraphonic you’ll have a very hard time finding one nicer than this.
