Re: Poll: What is your genre and bass drum size?
I think there may be something to the fact that 22" drums are often the only choice for a given kit, and that is why they are so prolific. I know I played a 22 for years for that very reason, and never really liked it. Went back to the 24 for this latest kit and I much prefer it.
I like small bass drums, as well, but for my current needs the 24 works. One day I'd like to have a second kit, and that one will have either an 18 or 20.
Sorry - unnecessary commentary cluttering the works.
