Default Re: Poll: What is your genre and bass drum size?

18" bass drum config are generally labelled "jazz", with a typical 12" and 14" toms.

Sorry Grea, this has nothing to do with your survey, just a little detour in the world of marketing :)

Depends on the manufacturer too. I think some also use a 20 in their kits classified as jazz. I've seen several sets with 24's called 'rock' too.
I'm not sure how helpful it is to classify sets by their sizes, other than to help people who self-identify with a specific genre.
