Default 66 Supra

Here's a 1966 Supra that I just finished sprucing up. The shell was purchased super pitted on the cheap. I sand blasted and painted it. Tube lugs, new strainer rims etc.

Sounds wonderful of course

That looks straight from a 1960's Ludwig catalog.

Very tasteful and a brilliant idea for messed up Supra's.

Thanks guys!
Took it to a gig this weekend and it just pops!
Funny thing is, I've been playing a similar vintage Acrolite lately as my main snare. The supra is nicer looking, but I think I like the Acrolite better. Go figure! Stays in tune better too....

mmm,... same story with me.

I recently switched a few times between Acro and Supra.

All band members prefer the 79' Acrolite above the '66 Supra.

Both 5" depth, same Remo heads both Puresound snare wires.

Me personally,... both have their own typical character,... love both of them !
