Re: General overall "workhorse" kit choices.

Your current kit is a mix, thats fine, just sub a smaller bass drum for your 26 and a 16 floor tom instead of a 14 ...for a 13-16-22 combo. Great sizes. Or get a 12 tom and have a 12-14-22 combo.

Re: Tuning

yes Bob Gatzen vids to start.
don't go by 'number of turns' go by pitches, so you must use your ears.
For a start (easiest) get batter and reso pitches the same, then you can vary on that....

Re: Tight Bass Head

'the 'feel' of your pedal, beater ...everything, changes with the pillow inside, which I am guessing abutted somewhat against the batter head, thus making it firmer, tighter in effect

Re: Practice pad drum set suggestions

Most of these kind of sets never cop the hi hat *pedal*. They may have a pad for it, but no pedal or its action.
I got around that by making my own, using a real hihat pedal.

Brian - nice drums, are those 1950's Ludwigs, WFL's or Leedy's?

Re: bass drum depth
