I do consider it a shame when they started making 18" deep bass drums, and then 20" (that was crazy). The size is just too wide and you don't gain much. Whereas the 16" gives you a bit more visual depth without looking silly.
I'm with you on the big bass sound. Bass drum sound to me is the foundation where it all starts. Poor foundation, poor build.

Re: 18" depth kick drums, you couldn't have said it better. I find them gaudy looking. Good to know about the PS3's, however, that's a whole other topic of conversation, as understanding drum heads escapes me to the point of frustration.

Many thanks, Matt!

My favorite bass drum size is 22x16, but I do not own one presently.

I have been playing a four-piece drum set for so long that anything else just feels weird. Peace and goodwill.

I played Slingerland back then too, thanks to mom and dad.
Neil's black Slingerland kit is a beauty in my opinion. You got enough money for all the percussion and a legit 5.5x14 Slingerland Artist 3-ply snare?

Hahaha! Probably not. But it's a cool daydream.
