Default Big Bass Drum Wars - The Champion

I don't know how big this sucker is ... I'll guess he's not playing bop. I'd still cut it down to a 14" depth, but that's just me.

A 28" sub-kick would compliment that nicely.

I just want to see a giant pedal on that thing, with a beater the size of a beach ball, and jump up and down on the footboard!

Won't be fitting that beastie in a Toyota hatchback any time soon. I like my 16" BD, which that thing wouldn't even consider big enough to eat. Maybe an entrée.

I'd convert it into a gong drum, to upgrade the bass drum.
Would also make a great trampoline.
