Just picked up a 15" floor tom for my 80s Yamaha RC kit. So now my toms are 12x10 15x13 and 18x16. I'm pretty pumped about it I've been waiting for a 15" to show up online
Oh, I have no forum cred to concern myself with. I like the way the 14 fits in tight spaces. I like the 12 tom over the 10 and can understand the preference for bigger toms, I just don't find it as bad as is commonly mentioned.Agreed. I'm surprised you're saying it out loud (the 10" tom bit).
That was my intent actually. I thought just maybe some industry people might pass through here and get the message.Through this thread, we see that manufacturers should really consider going back to shallower bass drum. 22x16 or 14".
The move to shallower floor toms was a good one, the move to small rack (10x7, 12x8) over a big 22x18, maybe less.
