hey again everyone. thinking about getting an 18" kick (i've really been diggin on bernard purdie and paul deakin lately) but dont know what depth to go with. seems to me that an 18x18 might not have much tone to it and would be nothing but punch, but too shallow and it would just sound like another floor tom. also, again, looking for a reasonable amount of volume. figured i'd get it straight from those of you who own and have relied on them.
