For discussion sake, what would it cost to gold plate or brass plate, whatever that is, on a 8 x 14 Supralite? I know someone who makes jewelry with metals, certain she could get close with the etching. Just daydreaming here.

You Supralite is a chrome over steel shell snare drum . The pictured drum is a brass shell snare with black nickel plating . The etching goes through the black nickel to show the underlying brass shell . You cannot duplicate this look with your Supralite snare . It would take multiple plating with different materials ( if this was even possible ). It would probably cost you about ten times what your Supralite snare is worth .
You would be better off to buy a Ludwig Black Beauty and ask John Aldridge to engrave it ( for a fee of course ) .

So, if you follow my hypothesis, the chrome could not be striped away, the drum then brass plated. The etching would reveal the steel below thus highlighting the etch. No way?

You would need to talk to someone from a plating company . It won’t be cheap to strip and replate the shell .

Chrome would be stripped chemically, easily: the reverse process of chroming. Use the snare chrome to plate another piece, it will "strip" the chrome from the snare. It will reveal the copper underneath...as it needed to be copper plated before it was chrome plated, that's how it's done. Timing is crucial, you don't want to strip the copper. Then brass plated. Yes, it can be etched which will reveal the steel and thus highlighting.

A one-off from Tumbling Boulders in Canada...steambent solid Maple shell, classic Leedy lugs, Red marine pearl. 8x14 but you can crank it to good midrange, you’re not stuck in Don Henleyville....

Dang Rich!
I love everything about that drum.
...Gorgeous!
Is that a 42 strand I see hanging underneath?
