It's very early Blue/Olive with serials in the 760,000 range. That's an older snare (1963) and I've since acquired a matching Jazz Festival dated Apr 13, 1970 thanks to Mike Layton. I've also got a Supra date stamped Dec 19, 1969. So I've got the Supra if I'm being a catalog purist about what snare "belongs" with a Jazzette kit.

Thanks zenstat. Good to know it is obtainable at least, even if it rarely turns up. I bet your Jazzette sounds great!
Btw I always do my research _after_ buying...to be able to just close my eyes and buy without concerning myself with boring things like market value and such. (Iím only half joking )

Yes it came with a Downbeat. That probably increased the price although there are other factors. This one ticks all the boxes: wood finish, premium seller, includes snare, Downbeat snare, excellent condition...

I believe that is the kit sold by Bill Maley in 3 days after it was offered at $5995 on his (now retired) site ClassicVintageDrums. That was Sep 19, 2015. And yes it had a matching Downbeat snare with it. Date stamps put it at 1967. I can't be sure whether that is the actual price paid or a lower offer was accepted. It is the second highest price I've recorded. The highest was in May 2018 for a 1968 Thermogloss Maple kit which was marked sold on eBay at $5999.99 and went to Norway. Again I can't be sure that that was the actual price paid.

Did you buy it Kevin? Or just save the picture?
