So yes & no. There is effectively no non-parallel version that is LITERALLY called a Jupiter, but yes the same snare with a gladstone style strainer instead of a parallel action strainer does exist. It just doesn't sport the name of a planet. & interestingly by the 1980 snare catalogue (the very catalogue in which the OP<s snare can be found) there is no use of the name Jupiter, only B4514X/BB4514LX with the S-017 strainer & the B4514/B4514L with the S-015 strainer, then substitution notes.
Itís all good friend. Thank you.

I know it was commented that that particular strainer was gimmicky and finicky. The next iteration of parallel strainer (I have a 514D, 6.5x14 steel) was a winner. easy to adjust, as the roller bar had a screw on both the left and right sides of the bar. You can dial it in perfectly, and don't need a degree to do it. It's an effective set-up with excellent sensitivity.

Isn't that a parallel strainer; Pearl's knockoff of the Ludwig supersensitive
