Re: 24" Bass Drum Depth

I own a 24 x 15" Yamaha Club Custom bass drum that is just superb. I prefer 14" depth bass drums and 15" depth is very close sonically. This my first 24" bass drum in over 40 years of playing and it...

Re: Gretsch difference

+1 - look for a used Gretsch USA Custom, you should be able to pick one up on your price range. The sound from a USA Custom is iconic and is nothing like the offshore manufactured kits.
