Sure, it's the perfect all purpose drum, the one drum I used from 1982-2008-- first an early 60s Gretsch then a late 80s Gretsch. Made a couple of records with a Yamaha RC 20x14, and that was great, too.
I have and love, a 20x16. Part of my 1994 Pearl Master Custom Maple set. I have used it in pretty much every genre you can think of that would include drum set, and have never had a problem with it sounding great. Honestly, the most versatile size, I think!!
Sure do. 2 kits with that size. If I could only have one size bass drum it would be a 20x14. It can tune up to bop, way down for punch, as well as everything between. I can cover just about anything with that size. Throw in a 14x5 snare, maybe an Acro, and I'm good to go.
I have a 20 x 14 Ludwig Club date last year's model. I like it pretty good I just have Factory heads on it I would like to experiment with some others . I really like being able to have my rack Toms lower. The 14 in-depth makes it easy to carry and transport takes up less room on stage also. I used to have a 20 x 18 Yamaha it sounded great but didn't transport as easy and took up more stage room.
