...Stan, the nicest sounding 10" tom I ever played was my 10x9" Canwood.
When I had this kit, I played the 10, and 14" toms with a 13x5" snare. I sold these drums around six years ago, and since then, my taste has evolved to the warmer boomier sound that I get from the bigger toms.
maybe one day I will reaquire an appreciation for the smaller toms.
I joined the four by four club. When do I get the secret handshake ?
