I'd go with a 14, simply because you're having reservations about the 15.

I've run the "exact" same sizes, 15, 16, 18 no problem ...

I've had two Ludwig 26x14's .... and my current kit runs a 26x16. You're probably not going to tell much difference between a 26x14 ... and a 26x16

+1 on Harry's comments.
happy drumming on your CM's when you get them. I love my 3 kits.

Personally, I'd go with a 10x14 instead of the 12x14. I have both sizes, and the 10x14 sounds fatter, reacts nicer and gives more positioning options.

That's just MY opinion on it, since I've got both to compare.

A 12x15 is a great sounding drum, and in the past, it's not been a problem running 15-16-18.
If you were going 14x16 (which is my preference A/B-ing), then I'd say 10x14.

Depending on how you play, tune, muffle and what heads you like, there can be little, or a noticeable difference in a 14 or 16" depth.

The less muffling, the more noticeable.

If you like to use a pre-muffed head, or use a pillow inside, get what's going to be easier to deal with all around (hauling, stage space if it's a factor etc..).
I have a 16x26 and I love it, but I also really dig my friends 14x26...I just like bass drums haha!

The action is pretty much the same, the length of the note is a little bit "more" on the 16" depth if you use less muffling (which I do). I posted what & how here: http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=69705 if you're interested.

Good luck!
