They seem like they’ve been produced in large numbers but are priced fairly high in today’s market? Would you consider them valuable pieces of gear or simply vintage?
Great info thank you. It’s in pretty damn good condition I was considering selling it but perhaps I’ll hold onto itThe 1960's Super Classic's aren't as common as the 1950's WFL badged versions. Wood snares already started to fall out of favor by 1964, so they are less common than metal shelled snares from the same era.
Wood snares are also more prized by collectors- so that also explains why the values are fairly high on them. But there is much stronger demand for the Jazz Festival snare- which uses the simpler P-83 strainer- then the Super Classic.
Thus the Super Classic- although originally priced higher- tends to sell for less money than a comparable Jazz Festival.
