After a car accident that left my bass drum completed caved inward (honestly the most horrifying thing I have ever seen), I went on a mad hunt for a replacement so that I could keep playing with my band. Weeks went by and my budget just really wasn't allowing much room to wiggle. On a long shot, I emailed Bill from Green Mountain Drums and he decided that he would donate me one of his high-quality, custom bass drums!
I was, and still am ecstatic. This is the kind of generosity and compassion for fellow musicians that keeps our community thriving.
20x16, Maple/Mahogany/Poplar mix. I play in two bands, both of which are very heavy so although beggars can't be choosers, I was a bit skeptical of the 20". I gotta say though, it's made no difference. This thing projects, and the tone is so rich. Not to mention, I'm a sucker for full length lugs.
