Big bass drums do sound pretty sick. I guess I just react to the playability of the 20". The sound comes off of it quick to my ear, and it is fun and inspiring to play.The VLX keeps it from being hi pitched and tunes lower than my previously owned 22" collectors. My 22" muddied up just enough that it wasn't as clear (drivers side). Playing out at a gig, miked the 20" sounds as big as needed so I have two DW kits with 20" bass drums.
