I think my favorite vintage snare may be a good ole Supra 400 with a pointy blue olive badge. I have had a few, probably shouldn’t have sold my favorite one.

Argh, I need this drum! Like me, I know you won't part with your red sparkles, either.

These are my current B/O badged sets. I've always been partial to the B/O badge over the earlier keystones. They always seemed to have a little more pizzazz to them vs. the "boring" looking small keystones. (Don't tar and feather me, it's just my opinion! )

I sold a 60s supra a few years back that I got for $60, shouldn’t have. I got a blue olive 400 for $75 sold that one too. I recently got the 400 pictured and will not be parting with it. Lessons learned.

I don't have any pics yet, but recently traded for a pointy badge 5" supra after not having one for years. Luckily not too much pitting that it looks beat to hell, I would say it's just right.

I like keystones better because they look cooler with the Ampeg blue diamond tolex I covered my drums with, but the toms have b/o badges and will keep them.

LOVE the B&O badge Ludwig's mainly because I was a kid growing up in the 70's ogling drums. Hence the B&O Ludwig's were what I saw in the shops and catalogues! My three are a 70 Supra, a 73 Acrolite and the cream of the crop a 79 black beauty once owned by Carmine Appice.
