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 ?
I'll bet that 10" Canwood beauty sang a very happy tune Barry:} Still have my old Canwood kit.
It's just a personal preference kind of thing when it comes to certain size drums for me at the moment based on what I hear in the music with other instruments. Right now the character and voice of my 10"x8" bubinga tom just fits the mix in the acoustic music I play in a unique sort of way. Up till recently i've always stayed with primarily a 12" tom only in my jazz setup. The 10" is just something my ear is enjoying at present adding a new color that seems to fit very nicely in the overall blend both live or in the studio.
P.S. Zambizzi will PM you the secret handshake :}
