110. Pearl 14×5 Chrome over Brass mid 1970s with die cast top hoop. This is the same series drum used by Steward Copeland from 1980 on with The Police on subsequent records and tours. It’s not a proper “Jupiter” model as that has a steel shell, different throw off and the vent hole is in the center of the drum. The “Copeland” model is like this— with the vent hole at the bottom of the shell.

114. Serenity solid wood sculpted 14×6.5. This was the last Serenity snare commissioned and made. A center band of spalted Ash, and segments of Amazonian Greenheart and (Congo) Azobe and Bilinga.  These woods spent decades at the side of the Thames River in London. The Bilinga and Azobe have a provenance— there were on Teddington Lock right outside the BBC Teddington Television studios. Monty Python filmed the “Fish Slapping Dance” on them, The Beatles docked at Teddington Lock after a “welcome back from America” Thames ride, walked on these as police held back throngs of screaming fans—and had the footsteps of British Television history giants from Peter Sellers, Benny Hill, Rowan Atkinson, and Ricky Gervais on them through the decades.  Britannia Pennies adorn the leather lugs dated from 1906 through the 20s.
