Default Re: Ludwig Jazzettes

Yep, the Jet kit was as specific as was the Jazzette when it came to the small bass drums...and I believe it was all due to the "fight" for the Haynes endorsement -trying to fulfill his wishes. I'm just speculating, but, there was a LOT of competition and oneupmanship between Slingerland and Ludwig in those days! And the Slingerland kit was modeled after Haynes' own modification -whereas Ludwig, by contrast, accommodated the specifications in a different manner by just making a shallower (18 X 12) shell. I know you know this already...I'm just stating it for educational purposes for the rest of the forum!
