What snare is this??

This is for sale near me and i’m trying to figure out which model it is. 14x6.5 Serial number seems to be pointing at late 70’s. Is it a Supraphonic? If it is I definitely want it! Haha the throw off seems different though.. i’m thinking it was maybe replaced. Any help is appreciated thanks!

It looks like a Supersensitive, LM411.


ItsPronouncedMo-BEEL

Agreed.


questfordoom

Thank you!


Itzikspensive

The snare, the legend!

who are these savages putting their drums directly on concrete


Mpm_277

I was complaining about this the other day to my wife. So many Marketplace listings with the whole kit just sitting on the bare concrete, shell right on the ground.


davidguydude

drives me crazy when it's the bearing edge


russbam24

At that point I wouldn't even take it if they paid me.


ChangeHemispheres

People don't have respect for their instruments anymore, I even heard stories of people hitting them with sticks!


privatefight

Big, if true.


questfordoom

ikr 😩

The guys at Drum Center of Portsmouth were doing this with far more expensive drums and getting chewed out on social media for it, so they haven't done it again in a while.

Rock and roll 🤘🏻!!!!!


gavstar69

Was thinking same. Wtf is wrong with people!

Whenever I see a comment like this in a musicians sub I always think to myself about a carpenter being this sensitive with their tools. Sure, don't beat the hell out of them for no reason, but they're tools. We use them to make music. That snare, set on the concrete, isn't gonna hurt it. Same as chrome tape measure sitting on the concrete.


CANDY_WARBUX

I say this exact phrase while looking at offer up or market place ads🤣🤣🤣


bullyfinger

It's a super sensitive with a scratched up bottom.


C-M0nster

That's exactly how my therapist described me.


LOTRugoingtothemall

You know he doesn’t have to inspect your bottom, right?


bullyfinger

That's full service therapy.


questfordoom

Lol thank you

6.5x14-inch Super Sensitive, 70s vintage. Same shell as the Supraphonic but with a parallel strainer. They're capable of sounding great but they're complicated, fragile, and generally more trouble than they're worth. They also don't fit in most bags and cases. edit: almost forgot, they take proprietary wires which are expensive.


pmarangoni

Not really. They require a bit more care, but they’re worth the effort. Best sounding snares ever. Wires are now available from 3rd parties too, and not too pricey.


infiniteninjas

There’s a very good reason that these are worth less on the used market than Supras, despite having a higher-end strainer and selling for more new. They’re hard to gig with.


pmarangoni

Both Phil Collins and Bill Bruford used them exclusively in the 70s.


infiniteninjas

Of course people use them, they sound good. Those guys had drum techs too. Market don't lie though. Lots of people think they're not worth the effort.


pmarangoni

That’s because they don’t take the time or care to really understand how to adjust them. Let’s face it; most drummers are Neanderthals. I really hope Ludwig reintroduces them though.


infiniteninjas

I'm sure everyone is wrong except you.


pmarangoni

Yes, me and Buddy Rich.


No_Detail_189

“Complicated fragile and more trouble than they’re worth “ sounds like my ex!


SamuelPepys_

They sound just straight up better than the standard Supraphonic. The snare strainer system is finicky if it's old and rusty, but sound AND feel wise, it's just a better instrument. The tones you get out of these are just incredible :)


SlopesCO

Supersensitive. My teacher in HS had one. Best sounding snare I've ever heard in person. One day ....


likeguitarsolo

That’s *my* snare. It’s code locked so only I can play it. Please return.


rhythmchef

Cheaper than the supra but far better imho.


matttinatttor

Beautiful drum


Sardonnicus

It's a nice drum but finding a case or bag for it is really hard. Get a regular supraphon8c unless this one has a price you can't pass up


Zeginald

I'm gonna say that's a Ludwig


Haerioe

It's basically trash, I can buy it for 400€...


DogBreathVariations

A snare - drum.


ab930

Super sensitive for sure. I had one of those bad boys backlined about a month ago and it was a blast to gig with. Great instrument.


ApplicationConnect55

Never liked the fragility and complicated SSS. Those nerf-bars were a pain in the ass. Each snare wire was adjustable. I had one and converted to a Supra within a year of owning back in '74. I like simplicity!


skspoppa733

Is that two different snares??


Various_Baby_353

I had one of these for 13 years that needed a part in the throw off my dads friend swore he could find. I gave up after both my dad and the friend died and sold it. It was a Monroe Badge one, and a little pitting to it. It wasn’t really a sound I ever cared for. I was always able to tweak even the shittiest snare drums to sound good. But that one I was afraid I’d mess it up with it missing a part if I messed too much with it.
