I love 14X16's.
They still get the deep, big sound, but it's faster in getting the 'total sound' happening.
Is it same with the 14X18?
I have had the kit in the studio this past weekend and I am absolutely thrilled. I haven't played floor toms in years, but I was lacking some extra low end with my other 8, 10, 12, 14 setup. So I decided to go with some floor toms in combination with the new X-shells.
The 13x15" X-shell tom sounds WAY bigger than the 14x16" I had on my old Yamaha Maple Custom, and the 14x18" X-shell tom is almost like a kick drum. VERY deep, big sound with defined attack and nice sustain. So yes, I guess you could say the "total sound" is happening really fast.
