Well why not consider them anyway? There’s another two inches saved .I don't think they make them with an 18" bass drum yet.
....I just looked on Ludwig’s website and you have to go pro level to even get an 18 bass. I wonder why that is. ....
Nah…not my thingBecause 18's are for pros.
Seriously though - it could eat into upper end sales. Unless someone is determined to have a USA made set.
The lower lines are all imports.
The Breakbeats and Pocket kits are current sets you can buy new though AFAIK.
But bop kit is 18" bass for this thread. My poll = my definition.
You can start a poll for 16" and under mini kits if that floats your boat though.

which one does wildbill like/want
I own one. It sounds fine and costs almost nothing. A 10” tom, but I’m learning to like that… slowly. It will need heads if they’re original. I don’t have the snare so I can’t speak to that, but I don’t think I would use the snare from any of the under $1,000 kits. Sell the snare to cover shipping and you have yourself a perfectly workable $250 bop kit.
I know. I found a beautiful Classic Maple 20/14/12 in that awesome "red diablo" lacquer finish, but it's at $3100, I think. Eek! I feel like $2400 is more accurate. But the times we live in are bizarre in more than one way...
Doesn't seem right for 3 small drums.
But I've seen some sets priced a lot higher for the same 18/12/14 configuration.
