My entire drumming life I've wanted to get the balls to play a 4 piece kit. I've heard countless drummers burn on those small sets. Playing a 4 piece is to scarey...you can't hide so you better be good. I'm still pondering thee perfect sizes which again is where the 23 comes in. The 24 is to dinasauer for me. The 22 is to rinky dink sears kit but milked they frikkin rule. That was so hard for me to accept in my 24 and 26 years. I'm looking at that black 23 on ebay for 1530...whoa!.
