Default Re: Bass drum size

I can remember thinking that a 16x24 was going to be too big also, but man, have I been happy with it since I've gotten it. You won't be disappointed. I also have a 16x18 floor which again, I didn't think I was going to use that often, but I find that I do use it more than I though. It was a little on the difficult side to tune, but I finally got it where I like it. Like you said, you could always add it later, good luck!!

Very cool! I can't wait to see it set up. I'm curious about the "black/gold" glitter finish.


And an update for me, I picked up a Gretsch Renown rock kit in 24x16, 13x9, and 16x16. The bass drum is great for the classic rock gigs I use it on. I still think a 22x16 is a perfect all-around size for me, but the 24x16 delivers a lower note with similar feel. And at least as importantly, it looks cool.:)

im tooting my own horn here, but iŽll definitely recommend 24*14, iŽll use it with remo powerstroke 3 on both sides with the dw pillow inside and a 4" hole. Just love the defentition and lowend. It resonates very well with my 18*16, but thats not for everyone, you prob would do better with a 16*14.

post pictures when you have it!

Default Re: Bass drum size 20x20 DW Collector

Hello Drummers;

I have a Gretsch Renown Maple set with a 22x18 Bass (standard) I love the sound, love the set. I plan on adding a new set to my arsenal and need a little input.

I am looking a set of DW Collectors. What concerns me is the Bass Drum size.
It is a 20x20 with reinforced hoops. I have never played a 20x20 extra deep.

I am currently in 4 bands. I have 25+ years of professional drumming and don't want to make a stupid acquisition. This was a screw up when ordered and is being wholesale priced so I can't touch it and play with it. Need some advice from those that are acutely aware of 20x20 sound and performance.

How does it sound in large theater size room v. night club size room. Does it really have a nice deep tone or just a loud punch. What does this baby really sound like and what are its articulate sounds peramiters. Like triplets and quads sounds. Does it hold pattern sounds or does it fade.

Thank you for your input

Funk Drummer
