    Yeah steel shell very nice drum. They sound great. That one looks like a deeper shell than the one I had a few months ago..

    I never saw a super-ten in 6 1/2 depth before. Are you certain that it isn't a Dyna, without the snare carriage? I can't tell from the picture. Super-tens were steel I believe.

    Not enough info for an answer. Like MR. Wells said, I've never seen one in 6.5 either. Looks like a Dyna to me, and a nice one. Just missing the frame? More pics would be helpful, and Dan C will get it figured out, for sure. As I remember, the Super Tens had Both the Script and the Big R badges on them, just went and looked at mine, confirmed............at least for mine. Nice looking drum! If it is truely a Super Ten, in that size, you might have a real rarity, who knows?

    I saw one of those Super 10's on eBay a week or so ago. Looked intriguing, but out of my price range nonetheless. This one looks beautiful, and I can imagine it sounds as nice as it looks.

    That is a 6.5x14 Superten. Steel shell. Dynasonics had those 5 ribs around the center, these did not.

    The earliest Supertens had the script badge and an oval serial number badge similar to the Dynasonic badge. During the transitions, both the S-ten and the Dyna had a script badge and a Big R serial tag, then went to just the Big R badge.

    That's a nice drum you have there. I like a deep snare, and the S-ten had good tone and provides a lot of volume when you need it.

    I have a script badge Super Ten. It sounds great. I was lucky to find it since there aren't so many of them in Ireland. Congrats on your good find.

    The SuperTen is a great snare. I've got a 5" early version. Actually it's for sale if anyone is interested.

    I have a 6.5 x 14 script superten. Very nice drum. I bought it in 1974 and it was my go to snare for many years. I play it wide open and it has a beautiful ring to it. The drum really projects and is indeed a great drum for loud rock music. I don't use mine as much as I used to but I have no desire to get rid of it.

    enjoy it janey!!

    I bought one from Jollity Drum Farm around 10 yrs ago,it wasn't cheap.These(6.5") are kind of rare.But,I'm such a Dyna freak,I converted both the 5" & 6.5" I have w/ Dyna frames.

    NICE 6 1/2!! Does it SAY Super Ten on it??

    I see those from time to time and plan sooner or later to grab one as they're kinda cheap due to being a steel shell. Nice sounding steel shell drum though. I've heard from multiple sources that they kick ass.

    A friend just lent me his 5.5 to try out for a test. I'll be trying it this weekend.

    I believe the later S/T that has both a script and a big R,does not say superten on it..Is this correct?..I believe depending on condition these drums are going for 2-350...quite a bargain :shock:
