Real nice kit! Congrats! If I had to do it all again though, I'd definitely would go with 24" bass drums for all kits, or even maybe 26". I know a lot of guys like those smaller bass drums at 20" but for me, to have a good mix of boom and thud, and the big sound I want, it's gotta be at least 24". I was sure I had found my bass drum sound when I bought my DWJazz kits with a 24" bass drum, I could recognize right there that there was a major difference in bass sounds between 22" and 24", with or without the pillow. Here's the kit right before a show in Montreal last October. Actually looking for a 26" right now, the brand new one at the mu-sick store is way too expensive at 1400$. Oh, and finally, the snare is a Dunnett Stainless, luvit!!
