Default Keller Jazz Fest Style Snare Shell

This is a beautiful 8-ply Keller shell, 5x14, with excellent edges and snare beds. Professionally wrapped in Merlot Sparkle. Perfectly drilled for Ludwig hardware: P-83/85 strainer, P-32 butt, muffler (with mounting screw BELOW the knob), and 8 lugs with typical Ludwig spacing of 2-3/16. Will accept Classic, Imperial, Acrolite, Standard or tube lugs. Includes a reproduction Ludwig badge and brass grommet, which was installed with a proper flaring tool. This will make an excellent Jazz Festival-style snare drum!

A very light coat of Clear Satin Polycrylic was applied to seal and protect the interior. There are some hex chips in the wrap that appear white. Not sure why. A minor thing, but I wanted to point that out.
$100 includes free shipping to the lower 48 States.

PM me if interested and to discuss payment.

-Mark

Nice drum, Mark!

Is it just me, or does there seem to be a "patch" of wrap near the butt plate holes. I see a seam in the wrap, but it doesn't go all the way to the bearing edges like the rest of the wrap does.

Looks like an oops to me.

Nope...not an "oops" or a "patch". Whoever wrapped the drum, and you can tell it is a professional job, chose to notch the overlap top and bottom so the heads wouldn't bind. Pork Pie, and others, have done it this way for a very long time now.

Attached are pictures of my Pork Pie from the mid-90's. You can see how Bill notched the wrap.

Some will notch the wrap near the bearing edge at the overlap. It makes for better head fitment.

Hmmm? I like that method with the notches
it helps me in deciding how to proceed with a duco jazz fest shell
I want to recover in some vintage blue oyster wrap
salvaged from a ruined keystone bass drum shell
The duco finished drums as I am told, can not be wrapped without head fit issues
or using the special heads made with a reduced thickness collar which increases the inner diameter of the collar
to allow for the added wrap material on the drum
The notched method here, seems much better than trimming the wrap to just meet the the collar without going under it,
or having the need to use the above mentioned heads
very glad I saw this

Good luck with the sale Mark

Hey Mark
Great idea. I am in the process of re wrapping 3-snares, a Lugwig and Rogers in Butcher Block and a Ludwig in BOP. I'll definitely check the fit before applying the wraps to make sure there is enough clearance for the heads. Would really stink if after all the work they wouldn't fit. I really like the notch idea, and may need to incorporate that. Thanks for sharing!
Michael

I agree with all the guys the wrap method is a great idea. Ive done wraps where like a lot of english drums the wrap just meets with no overlap. Ive done wraps with the overlap. The finish IDFF ive seen that before with the white spots. Even on old wraps. Could be just one of those things but as a shell what you offer i think is well worth the bucks. Good luck with the sale.
