Hey all,

Hoping for some help with this one. Check out the photos. From my research I’m thinking this may have originally had the “super-sensitive” style snare mechanism due to the extra holes you see, and maybe the bottom hoop is an indication of that as well?

I know the strainer is older, so maybe this modification was done a while ago? Nonetheless, this thing had the mojo, so I couldn’t pass it up. Size is 7 x 14.

Thanks for the help in advance! I love learning.

Yes that was a Super. Please let me know if the bottom hoop comes up for sale.

Word is that there are some legendary, hidden-away cats that can make those parts. Pre-internet fellows.

There was a guy many years ago that used to cast Ludwig Super and Super Sensitive parts from molds of originals, but unfortunately he died a long time ago.

What about the legendary Bill Wanser? The (now late) Jim Petty might have been another. Also, Mike Currotto might have some connections.

Wow I wish someone would still be doing that!
