siamese mini-monster
I almost purchased a Gretsch Catalina before I got my Ludwig's.

But...

I went to GC and played a manu set and I was blown away at its sound, amazing little kit I tell you! I will probably end up picking one up in a year or so as a jazz gig/street break beat kit or something. The 12 inch snare sounded superb too! Truely amazed. And for a price of 599 you cant beat it.

yeah and MF has them for 799 with ALL hardware... throne, kick pedal, snare stand, tom mount, hihat stand, and 2 straight stands... not bad. my guitar player works at GC. he says that they come to their stores in the full package with all hardware, but they "explode" them to give you (the customer) more options. ill get him to get me an employee discount on em... maybe 600... maybe less...

Here is my little kit I made out of some old drums. 16x16 bass, 10x5 tom, 12x11 and 13x12 floor toms, 14x5.5 steel snare. Sounds cool...I'm about to give them a makeover and paint them black with lime/neon green hoops/lugs. Should be cool

And here is mine: Tamburo Original, maple stave set, 1991. The bass drum is 16" x 18" with riser, and is fantastic.

I use a Tama stagestar with a 14x18 bass. I use an Aquarian SK II batter and a black logo head from a Tama Starclassic.
I have a 3 1/2 inch porthole. I tune the heads to 76 on the drum dial.
If I want kind of a "boom" Jazz sound I don't stuff the drum. If I want a Rock "thump" sound I place a small flat folded hand towel across the bottom of the drum so that it just touches the bottom of the heads. I can insert and remove the towel through the porthole.
The most important thing that I have found to get the best sound is the beater has to hit the head on center. I use a riser for this. The riser also keeps the drum off of the floor giving more sound.
I really like this kit and I use it for all of my gigs in clubs both large and small. I fully mic the kit in large clubs. I almost always mic the bass drum even if I only turn the mic volume up slightly.

wow I've never been interested in a kit with a bass drum under 22" until reading through this thread. I wonder if the Sonor Force 2007 Birch series come in 18" bass drum sizes...

I'd love to see more pics!!

I believe that 20" is the smallest bass that that kit comes in. Small kits are a blast! Easy to transport, fun to play!

Thats great! The 2007s are real nice kits. I almost bought a 2007 with a 20" kick right before I found my used Tama Stagestar locally for a good price. I always wondered about the 17.5 depth bass drum. It is an unusual dimension. I can't see it being a big deal as in a problem or anything like that though.

my CC birch.

Has a 14x18" kick, 12x8 rack and 14x14" floor. Sounds punchy and loud!
