Supreme Concert snare. Here's mine from '57. Great sounding drum! View attachment 530325
Is yours a 5 x 14 or a 5.5 x 14 and have you re-lacquered the drum. The Mahogany finishes I have on two other drums have a beautiful glossy finish. I am in two minds whether to have my 5x14 stained and lacquered or have an oyster pearl wrap on it

Mine is a 5.5x14. The shell is glossy, but has minor chips, scratches and general wear on the outside shell. I can tell it was once 'more glossy' when it was younger. It has not been re-finished.
