If you had to rewrap a Jazzette kit, what color would you choose besides mahogany or natural maple thermogloss?

Is there something about the sizes that would make you enjoy one color over another?

Cheers,
Benny

Confused. Is the wood finish a veneer or not original?

None of the ones listed. Champagne sparkle. A finish that's hard to have a problem with. Ideal for resale....if you think you might ever sell them.
Probably the widest buyer audience in that color.

I voted silver sparkle because I already have red and gold sparkle in 12/14/18 (although neither is technically a Jazzette).

But I lust after finding one in mahogany or (even more so) maple.

Ah, how could I forget champagne sp? I just added it. I guess I can’t add any more poll options, or else I’d add green sparkle, too.
I’m really enjoying these responses!

I voted for red sparkle mainly because I am partial to red sparkle Ludwigs. Are these keystone badged drums? If so, maybe also consider burgundy sparkle or even black galaxy (I think that's what Ludwig called it, black background with multi colored sparkles).

My 6 ply Jazzette I recently sold to finance

And because I love the look of these. (Pic found online)

It's really, really hard to argue with a red sparkle or green sparkle on Ludwigs. Unless, of course, you're a fan of Morello and you could just go silver sparkle.

I can’t add burgundy sparkle, mod orange, or psych red to the poll. I think mod orange might exude the most vintage charm for me. Probably because I learned how to play drums on a mod orange kit back in nineteen dickity-doo.

I was thinking vintage jazzette. This is all hypothetical fun-dreaming.
Until I pull the trigger on the right jazzette.
