Does this bass drum make me look small?

Cool kit, and if the sounds right, doesn't matter how tall one is.
All you need now is a 26' Paiste GB to go with it.

I would LOVE a 26" cymbal! From what I recall, Stan Kenton had his drummers play huge cymbals (I think Erskine at one point had a 26" ride, and even Billy Cobham in his early days sported a 26" Swish! I remember how glorious that was!

Hey Bo, skaa-roo people who hastle you about you size. I have the opposite problem at 7 feet. Play like you have something inside of you to give and let the rest take care of itself.

I'm cool. Everybody gets to have an opinion, and not everyone gets a choice of what they play on a gig. I'm fortunate!

Same downhill leg angles as Bo, but kick drum a lot smaller lol. "Does this kick drum make me look tall".

I have since lowered my seat. A lot less leg fatigue I don't stress legs or glutes using muscles to keep from sliding forward.Jim & Mark.jpg

After I saw this picture, I dropped everything by two inches and it immediately felt more comfortable.
