Smaller kick drums, smaller foot print kits.

Okay, I know I posted recently on this subject, but I was asking the wrong questions.

Right now, I'm selling my standard sized 5 piece set because I need a smaller foot print for my room.

I'm looking for a 20 or less inch bass, with a 16 or less inch depth. That's my biggest concern. When I store the rest of the drums away, they fit fine, but my 22x16 kick is too big.

I'm look for a classy (not a stupid looking wrap) looking, under or around $700 4 piece kit.

Also, could someone please tell me what's up with this Pearl Vision series? I'm seeing them from $300-$900, and I don't know what's real and not.

Please, post ideas besides the Grestch Jazz kit, because I already have that on my radar. Thanks.

Yamaha Stage Custom Birch! I got a 5-Piece shell pack
(10x8, 12x9, 14x14 w/legs, 20x17, 14x5.5 snare) for $700, and I couldn't be happier with it. The lacquer finish and bearing edges are flawless, and it has a wide tuning range.

Not to sound silly but is the 2 inches in diameter really going to matter for storage?
Or stacked on its heads is 3 inches in height going to matter? Just wondering.

Those aren't huge differences, but it all adds up.

I used to play out of a 20 by 14 kick and it sounded great.

What size is your kit ?

If you have a 14" or 16" floor tom, you could convert it as a bass drum (I'm thinking the Gibraltar R-Class conversion kit) and decrease the space occupied by your 22" bass drum.

Yeah, it really does. The space I have to put away my kit is very limited, and right now its hard to get around in my room, and soon I'm moving to an apartment.

I tried that once, but it's time for an upgrade. I've been drumming the last 3 years on a CB set. If you don't know that brand, that should tell you why I need an upgrade.



Does anyone know anything about Visions?
