My '63 5" Supraphonic is still my favorite snare. has body and bite. beautiful sounding drum all 'round.
The Supra is also made from aluminum, but they also make the chrome over brass and black beauty (nickle plated brass) models. What generally designates the model a Supra is the 10 lug configuration and the use of the P-85, p-83, or p-86 strainer systems.drumur":1xcvu5zz said:I'm pretty sure that the acrolite is aluminum.
Ludalloy is aluminum. The standard, workhorse Supras are aluminum. They were not steel, as far as I can remember.Alan_":ay77q69n said:as far as I know, the supraphonic shell was always made of steel or brass. the acrolite had the aluminum shell. never heard of a chrome-plated aluminum shell on a supraphonic.
