I’m not being a smart-@ss here…what makes this model different from a Jazz Fest?
Thanks!

Nothing, really. Ludwig sometimes named a drum model after whichever famous drummer of the time was endorsing Ludwig. When Deems jumped the Ludwig ship, Ludwig just renamed it.

The Barret Deems was 5 1/2" deep and the Jazz Festival was 5".


There are plenty of 5 1/2" deep Jazz Fests out there, because we are talking about Ludwig, but they were always marketed, and were mostly supplied with a 5" depth.

From the Ludwig drums website:

"First introduced to the market in the 1950s as the Buddy Rich Model Snare Drum, the Jazzfest took on its first form in the early 1960s as a 5.5" depth snare. This version of the Jazzfest would come to join the iconic line-up of tracks that Ludwig snares drums dominate."

Now you should know better than to use the Ludwig site as any sort of historical reference. In most cases, they don't have a clue.



Go back and look at the catalogs from that era. The Buddy Rich model had the classic strainer and was 5 1/2" deep and was even called the "Buddy Rich Model Super Classic" starting in the in the '48 catalog all the way through the '56 (#57) catalog. Buddy had left Ludwig by the time the '59 (#60) catalog was printed so Buddy Rich was dropped from the name and the snare was simply called the Super Classic from then on.
