Mark,
Thanks for the tip. I may give that a try. Iím assuming that you are chasing the threads manually.
I started out just changing out the P85 throw off with the P88AC. I tapped the unthreaded holes in the snare butt so the spacing matches the Supraphonic. I had to use plastic spacers to get the snare butt on tight.
Iím also putting on 24 brass wire Sound Percussion Custom Pro snare wires, so then I bought new Ambassador heads as well.
About half of my tension rods where rusted and I found a nice set of rods on eBay to replace them.
So the little project has expanded quite a bit.

Hi Jeff! Thanks! Finding this shell, with original champagne sparkle wrap, is a nice addition to my collection. I didn't mind transferring the parts from the original silver sparkle shell, since this is for my personal use. Also, both shells are from the same time period, too.

-Mark

Hi Jim!

Yes, I chase the threads manually! Your drum project sounds great. Don't forget to post pictures when it's complete.

Thanks, I’ll start a new thread. I, of course, am saving the P85 throw off and butt plate. I use this snare all the time so it’s not a collectors item.
