Karl, technically speaking, the 12 x 18" Bass, along with an 8 x 12" & 14 x 14" FT, is what makes a Ludwig "Jazzette," a true Jazzette......

With that said, there was nothing stopping someone from walking into a Ludwig Dealer back when the Jazzette was listed in the Catalogs (late 60's, early to mid-70's) and ordering their own version that had a 14 x 18" Bass since the "larger size" was available as a Component Drum.

There can be an awful fine line between a rut & a groove............
