    20x16 or 22x16 Recording Custom

    22" it is! I've decided to get the 16" Tom and then perhaps look to get a 14" down the road

    20x16 or 22x16 Recording Custom

    One consideration is that Tom placement bugs the hell out of me at the moment as I can't get it quite right with my mapex, although I do have a 12x9 as opposed to 12x8 so this extra inch may offer a lot...

    20x16 or 22x16 Recording Custom

    That's the issue mate, a single bass drum is way in excess of a grand or more and I'm kinda torn between the two... want to just make the best decision with the limited info. I may see with the 16 Tom what the quotes are like... decisions decisions...

    20x16 or 22x16 Recording Custom

    Thanks for your comments, interesting to consider! Could you elaborate? Is this just for sound or mainly your playing application?

    20x16 or 22x16 Recording Custom

    Well the guy at the store also recommended to go with the 20x16 in this case. I suppose I could upgrade the bass drum in future; however, I guess it's because I have always played a 22x18 bass drum... funilly enough my old kit is a mapex pro m which had the same diameter drums for the Toms...

    20x16 or 22x16 Recording Custom

    Thanks guys. I am tempted to perhaps purchase a 16" Tom in the future... the kit is quite expensive, so I am just trying to think of a setup which is going to be future proof. The bass drums on the recording custom are pretty pricey, so I'd rather take the hit now as opposed to down the line if...

    20x16 or 22x16 Recording Custom

    Hi Guys, I'm just about to purchase a new recording custom and I am torn between the 22x16 or 20x16 bass drum... Tom sizes will be 10x7.5, 12x8 and 14x13. I generally play all styles, but mainly funk and rock at the moment. Any suggestions and pros and cons?

    Gavin Harrison here!

    Hey Gavin, Just a question on bass drum sizes... I've played a 22x18 bass drum for a number of years and I am looking to buy a Yamaha Recording custom. Shell sizes would be 10x 7.5 12x8 and 14x13 with a 14x6 snare. I wanted to choose either a 22x16 or 20x16 bass drum. My genre of playing...

    Which Hudson DVD?

    Hi! I've been given a code to claim any Hudson Music DVD download I want. Obviously it's going to be a drumming one. I am just torn which to pick! I did have secret weapons for the modern drummer but someone stole it, so I may replace that. However, Pat Pertrillo and Benny Greb look tempting...

    HELP: Which road do I take?

    Hey Folks, Just wanted to have your opinions on the following... I have recently been for an audition with a covers band and I have been offered the spot of being their drummer. They already have around 50+ gigs booked on the local circuit and each would be pretty well paid (getting around...

    Moving from an Electronic Kit to an Acoustic Kit

    Probably already exists, but I thought I'd ignite fresh discussion, and I think this is relative to technique. I have found that when I'm playing my electronic kit, I can throw out great chops, can get through exercises great. Get back on my acoustic kit and I SUCK. Everything just seems...

    World War 3

    Quite a depressing topic, but with all tensions currently happening in world affairs - especially Syria, do you think we are on the brink, or not? People's thoughts would be appreciated
