Well...I've cut down two burst finish bass drums, and honestly you don't really notice that much....it's just that the bass drum will now be a fade instead of a burst. No biggie, I'm sure it will still be a nice finish after the trim. Do it!!I am finally coming around to the 14" size. It's my favorite depth now too.
Does our new yellow Gretsch bass drum sport a 14" depth?
I have a 22 x 20 DW bass drum, with a burst type finish. It's now pretty much laughable.
I would have to take the middle 6" out and rejoin the remaining 2 pieces, because of the paint job.
I really don't think 20" deep bass drums are going to make a comeback anytime this century.
Thank goodness he's at the Gretsch Factory. At least his drums aren't being held in Area 51.Larry called me and said that he's at the Gretsch factory with a cache of automatic rifles, boxes of ammo, full body armour and I just heard he took some hostages.
He's got a slight grievance and can't wait any longer.
