Very nice. Curious as to model of the snare . Is it wood? Enjoy

Yes it is a wood snare - 8 lugs - jazz fest. There have been questions raised regarding the fact that the strainer & the butt are in reverse positions on the drum but that is how it was made - there are no extra holes in the shell.

I have created a shared photo album that I’m going to put out there with pictures of the snare drum to be scrutinized until I get it checked out in person- but as far as I can tell it appears to be an authentic original snare drum from the factory.

MJ!

The "Rock Duo" is one of those iconic catalog sets! To have it in a rare finish, and a matching Jazz Festival, can't be beat! I followed this over at DFO, where we did discuss about the misplaced muffler and badge/grommet. It never occurred to me that it was really the strainer and butt that are in reverse position! A real one-of-a-kind Jazz Festival!

Thanks Mark! I am really enjoying this drum set!

I did send pics to Jack Lawton after Bun E had told me that Jack had done some repro Jazz fests from a 38” citrus mod marching bass drum he had gotten and this is what he said in reply to me….

Hey Mike,

It's good to hear from you! That certainly is a nice looking outfit in a relatively rare wrap. The snare drum looks legit...even though the throw-off and butt are reversed. It is quite possible that it could have been a custom ordered snare drum for someone who wanted the throw-off and tone control next to each other.

As for the Citrus Mod bass drum that I stripped down, it was actually an 18" x 40" concert bass drum that had factory installed Black Panther over Citrus Mod. It was a huge nightmare removing the Black Panther and it's glue residue from the Citrus Mod, but well worth the time and aggravation.
Unfortunately, a 40" bass drum had to be wrapped in 3 pieces of the Citrus Mod, and all 3 pieces were just a couple of inches short of being able to wrap around a 14" shell. So, all of the Jazz Festivals that I rewrapped had to be done in 2 pieces, and I believe we could only actually do 6 snare
drums total. I don't believe that your snare drum would have been from that wrap, especially if there is only one seam. From the pictures, your snare drum looks to be "factory".

Hope all is well with you and yours!

All the best,

Jack

Hi Jack!

Excellent information from JL! I have some pictures of a Citrus Mod Jazz Festival that was on eBay some years ago. It does have two seams, so it's obvious it was wrapped by Mr. Lawton! If I can track it down, I'll post it.
