Hey guys, I sent this guy over here from a Reddit page because I thought if anyone could help him, you guys could.
He just wants to know what he has.

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?

The 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.

Great info thank you. It’s in pretty damn good condition I was considering selling it but perhaps I’ll hold onto it

I would keep it- they sound great and are more than just a shelf queen.
