    Frankenstein 18x14 bass drum

    Sometimes you get an idea far enough out there that you know you'll have to do it yourself (or pay someone else to do it). I ran across an inexpensive 18x14 Pearl Forum bass that seemed like it might work. Just got it yesterday and have been working on it, but I'm not finished yet. First thing...

    Would you buy a bass drum........

    Update - see post #23 - page 2 that's not your favorite size, but that you have a lot of spare heads for? I've had several 18" bass drum bop kits, and when I had them, I picked up extra heads for them. Heads are expensive nowadays, but used (lightly) ones don't sell. I much prefer a 20"...

    Cheap Thrills

    $100 - Ludwig Accent - 22/13/16 Since I got back into drumming, I've been focused on 18" bop kits, and 20/10/12/14 kits. Decided to remember what I've been missing, and when asked what sizes work good, I always say 20/10/12/14 or 22/13/16, so when this turned up, I decided to give it a go. The...
