thanks very much for your answer, helps a lot!
I was just looking at some vintage sets in a German vintage drum shop (www.magicdrum.de
) and detected the Jazzette. For some sets the depth was 12"...for one green sparkle Jazzette the bass drum depth was missing...so I was wondering.
Are those made from Mahagoni btw? African Mahagoni...or a completely different wood?
