Default Re: Smaller Toms Compared To Larger

There are the freak occurences where small drums can sound big, with the right construction, heads and tuning.

13's 14's 16's 18's Toms & 24 or 26 Bd's I find more versatile than being stuck with smaller drums.
I'm talking live here, you can cheat in the studio, so not so relevant....still prefer them there also.
Then this tom setup of 8", 10", (no 12") rack toms, and 14" & 16" floor toms must be something that you would quickly avoid.



...but since the toms are as deep as they are wide, the sound has considerable some oomph and depth.

Perhaps the next drums I get will have square dimensions...as long as I have small kick drums to place them over.

Like these? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyWG-eCo2uc

BTW, my new kit is being built with some radical design & depths. It'll be a while, but worth the wait!

You're also talking about cast bronze, not wood and glue. These are no doubt, considerably louder than most wood drums.
