This comes with a nice big ludwig kit locally; what is it and what’re they worth?

6.5 x 14 hammered bronze Supra. Very desirable snare drum that I believe they stopped making recently. I've seen them for sale for anywhere from $600-$900.

I have a smooth (non-hammered) version of that drum from the early 80s and it's a keeper. The hammered versions sound a tad dryer.

I have two 6.5x14 smooth bronze versions and a 5x14 hammered. If you get that kit and want to trade a hammered for bronze, please PM me!
All Ludwig bronze snares are great, though.

Unfortunately, the set is 2.5 hours away. I'm going there in 2 weeks and I offered $50 to hold it; she asked for a $300-400 deposit. I think this is too much when the pictures aren't great and I haven't been able to see it in person yet. Fingers crossed it doesn't sell!
